The Ondo state government has announced the appointment of the state Commissioner for Agriculture, Lasisi Oluboyo, as the state’s new deputy governor, following the impeachment of Ali Olanusi by the state House of Assembly on Monday morning.
Very little is known about Mr. Oluboyo at this time.
Twenty two of the 26 members of the Assembly supported the impeachment of the former Deputy Governor, who recently moved from the Peoples Democratic Party to the All Progressives Congress.
The motion for his impeachment was moved by the majority leader, Ifedayo Akinsoyinu, from Ondo West 11 and seconded by Olatunji Dauro from Owo 11.
The Ondo Assembly last Tuesday (April 22) served an impeachment notice on Mr. Olanusi in a notices signed by 20 of its 26 members, which accused the deputy governor of alleged gross misconduct.
Some of the allegations levelled against him include financial misappropriation, absenteeism from official duties and causing disaffection in the state cabinet.
