Court nullifies impeachment of Kogi deputy governor


A Logo State High Court on Thursday nullified the impeachment of Kogi State Deputy Governor, Simon Achuba, by the state house of assembly.

The court declared that the impeachment did not follow due process.

Achuba was in October 2019 impeached by the State House of Assembly.

But Justice John Olorunfemi on Wednesday faulted Achuba’s removal from office, describing it as a violation of the Constitution.

The judge, while delivering the judgment, also said the nomination of Edward Onoja as the deputy governor did not follow due process.
