There is a protest ongoing at the Lagos State House of Assembly.
The protesters are calling on the House to shelve talks of impeaching Akinwunmi Ambode, Governor of Lagos State, which formed part of the discussions at its plenary session on Monday.
At the plenary session on January 28, 2019, there were allegations against Ambode that the 2019 budget, which had not yet been presented to the Assembly, was already incurring expenditure.
After deliberations, Ambode was given one week to respond to the allegations.
The protesters marched to the front of the House complex, bearing placards on which were inscribed: ‘No to Impeachment’, ‘Stop Scaring Investors and Tourists from Lagos’, ‘Let Us Welcome PMB and PYO Peacefully for Lagos Rally’, ‘We Stand with Ambode’, among others.
They also chanted in Yoruba, calling on the Assembly to allow Ambode finish his term in office.
