The Senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District, Dino Melaye, has reacted to the impeachment of the state Deputy Governor, Elder Simon Achuba.
We had reported that Achuba was on Friday impeached by the Kogi House of Assembly over allegations of gross misconduct leveled against him.
Addressing newsmen after the impeachment, Majority Leader of the House, Hassan Bello Abdullahi (APC-Ajaokuta), said the House received a report from a panel of inquiry and acted accordingly.
Abdullahi added that the House met, sat and deliberated on the recommendations of the panel to arrive at the conclusion, adding that with the impeachment of the Deputy Governor, justice had been served.
But, reacting, Dino in a tweet on his official Twitter page, described the impeachment as a ‘constitutional vandalism.’
He wrote, “Illegal removal of Kogi Deputy Governor by the carry go House of Assembly after a clean bill of health by the panel is constitutional vandalism.”
