Ambode To Present 2019 Budget Before Lagos Assembly
Akinwunmi Ambode, Governor of Lagos state, is expected to present the 2019 budget before the Lagos state Assembly on Tuesday (Today).
Okay Nigeria had on Jan. 29, 2019 reported that the legislature had last week threatened to impeach the governor for sending the budget to it instead of appearing in person to present and defend as done in previous years.
The assembly also accuse the governor of gross misconduct, including spending before budget approval.
However, Bola Tinubu, national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), settled the situation as he assured Lagosians that the governor won’t be impeached.
Tinubu said this while speaking after a meeting of the Governor’s Advisory Committee (GAC), in Lagos on Sunday.
In his words: “We examined the grievances on both sides. As leaders, we also looked into areas where there has to be a compromise.
“In order to build institutions and encourage consensus-building, we have to do what is right.
“There is no impeachment. Let there be more communication and consensus-building and understanding. All these are inbuilt in the democratic system.”
