Finally, Oyo Assembly impeaches Deputy Governor

The Oyo State House of Assembly, on Monday, has finally impeached the state’s deputy governor, Rauf Olaniyan, over allegations of gross misconduct and financial impropriety, while in office.

The Assembly, during its emergency sitting recommended that, having considered the report of the seven-man panel constituted by the Chief Judge of the state to investigate allegations of gross misconduct against the deputy governor, it has found him culpable of all allegations.

Olaniyan was elected in 2019 on a joint ticket with incumbent Governor, Engineer Seyi Makinde on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party but recently defected to the opposition party, the All Progressives Congress in the state.

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 immediately effect, as the Assembly planned to reconvene its sitting again.
