A former Oyo State Governor and National Leader of Accord Party, Rashidi Ladoja, has said members of his party in the Oyo State House of Assembly would not be party to any impeachment plan against the state Governor, Abiola Ajimobi.
While stating that he would contest for the governorship seat of the state in 2015, Ladoja, who was impeached as the governor in 2006 before he was later returned by court verdict the following year, said there was no political justification for removing Ajimobi with a few months to the end of his tenure.
He added that such a move could result in social and political unrest in the state.
He said, “I cannot understand the basis of anybody in the House suddenly waking up to nurse any impeachment ambition against Governor Ajimobi.
“In any case, Accord is not a party to it. I cannot understand why they will say there is gross misconduct against a governor who is on his way out.
“Let them publish it for people to see, but as far as I am concerned, our party is not part of any purported plan to impeach Governor Ajimobi.”
