Nigeria: Dep. Gov. of Oyo State impeached by Oyo Assembly



Rauf Olaniyan, the state’s deputy governor, was eventually removed from office by the Oyo State House of Assembly on Monday following accusations of severe misbehavior and financial irregularities.

Following consideration of the findings of the seven-person panel appointed by the state’s chief judge to look into allegations of gross misconduct against the deputy governor, the Assembly made a recommendation that the deputy governor be found guilty of all charges.

The recommendations stated further: “I hereby, recommend for the approval of the house, pursuant to section 188 (19) of the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (as ammended) that the deputy governor of Oyo State, His Excellency, Engr. Rauf Olaniyan, stand removed from from office with effect from today, Monday July 18, 2022.”

Following this development, the governor, Mr. ‘Seyi Makinde, is expected to announce the name of the new deputy governor, who is expected to be sworn in with immediate effect today, as the Assembly planned to reconvene its sitting again in the next few hours.
