Impeachment: Achuba seeks Buhari’s intervention


The impeached Deputy Governor of Kogi State, Mr Simon Achuba, has
called on President Muhammadu Buhari to intervene in the political
crisis currently rocking the state to prevent breakdown of law and
Achuba made the call at a press conference in Lokoja on Sunday,
shortly after packing out of his official residence.
He said that the president’s elderly intervention would save the state
and the All Progressives Congress (APC) from impending danger.
Achuba described his impeachment by the state House of Assembly as an
act of extreme lawlessness, saying that he had instructed his lawyers
to commence a judicial process to reclaim his seat.
He accused the executive and the legislative arms of government of
treating him like a common criminal by calling policemen to barricade
the entrance to his house.
The impeached deputy governor said that electricity supply to his
official residence was also disconnected and power generator disabled
to force him out few hours after his purported impeachment.
He insisted that swearing-in anyone else as deputy governor amounted
to illegality and a breach of the constitution.
“My purported impeachment last Friday by the state House of Assembly
was unconstitutional and illegality that will not stand the test of
judiciary,” he said.
