A group of protesters, on Wednesday, stormed the Lagos State House of Assembly, to protest against the planned impeachment of the State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode.
The men and women, who carried banners with inscriptions of their agitations, said that the removal of Ambode would disrupt the peaceful conduct of the general elections in the State.
They asked the Lawmakers to allow the Governor complete his tenure.
Post-Nigeria recalls, that the Assembly had accused the Governor of gross misconduct, and illegally spending from the 2019 budget, which had yet to be approved by the Assembly.
They had given the Governor seven days to defend the allegations, or risk impeachment.
Police vans were mounted at the entrance of the Assembly, on Wednesday, as the protesters stood outside, singing solidarity songs.
One of the men, who identified himself as Jimoh, said that Ambode did not deserve the treatment being meted out to him.
He said: “I am concerned as a Lagosian. His performance is visible. They should leave him alone. I was not paid to come for this protest. Nobody gave me anything. They should just allow him complete his tenure, which ends in a few months time.”
The protesters also condemned the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, whom they accused of being behind all the persecutions Governor Ambode has suffered lately, including his not being able to seek a second term as Governor of the State.
They threatened that if anything should happen to Ambode, or should he not be allowed to complete his one term in Office, Bola Tinubu should be ready to leave Lagos State as well.
