Attention of His Excellency, the former Deputy Governor of Kogi State, Elder Simon Achuba has been drawn to some reports by section of the media, stating that “Achuba was impeached in October 2019 by members of the Kogi State House of Assembly.
That “the impeachment followed the submission of the report of the Pannel of inquiry set up by Justice Ajana to investigate gross misconduct allegations leveled against him by the State Assembly “.
To put the record straight, the judgment of the State High Court Lokoja stated clearly that, Elder Simon Achuba was unlawfully removed as the Deputy Governor of Kogi State in 2019 by the Kogi State House of Assembly, even when the Judicial Panel of Inquiry set up by the state Judge, Justice Nasiru Ajana to investigate the gross misconduct allegations against him did not find him gullty of any of the allegations, as the Panel submitted that the allegations against him were NOT PROVEN. The action, the State High Court Lokoja described as illegal, unconstitutional and null and avoid. The court further declared that no impeacement had taken place..
This piece hereby advise the general public to disregard any report or reports referring to an action that has been nulified and buried by the court as impeachment.
Even as the legal team of His Excellency is posed to take legal action against the mischief makers, the general public is once more advised to set aside their misleading reports.
