  • Kogi Deputy Governor is challenging impeachment notice against him.

Elder Simon Achuba, the Deputy Governor of Kogi State, north-central Nigeria, has filed an application before the State High Court, Lokoja.

36naija.com understands that Achuba is challenging an alleged notice served on him by the State House of Assembly, on the heels that it was served out of time and marred with irregularities.

The case of the Kogi Deputy Governor is set for hearing on the date to be announced soon by the court.

This will be coming after the Kogi State Assembly commenced an impeachment process against the Deputy Governor over alleged gross misconduct.

The impeachment notice against the Kogi Deputy Governor was read by the majority leader of the House, Abdullahi Bello (Ajaokuta, APC) as a petition on the floor of the Assembly. He said the petition was based on three grounds of criminal indulgence, financial misappropriation, and non-performance.
