Oyo Assembly Begins Impeachment Process Against Deputy Gov Olaniyan

The Oyo State House of Assembly has commenced impeachment proceedings against the embattled Deputy Governor 
Rauf Olaniyan.

The thinking in some quarters is that Governor Seyi Makinde is the one prodding the pliant Oyo state lawmakers to move against his deputy as the frosty relationship between the two deteriorates.

Olaniyan political plights worsened when he defected from the People's Democratic Party(PDP) that brought him to power to take up shelter in the tent of the All Progressives Congress (APC), fuelling speculations that the Olaniyan's defection was aimed at joining forces with the opposition APC and strengthen its hand to scuttle Makinde's re-election.

Already, allegations of gross misconduct, financial recklessness, abandonment of office/official duty, insubordination and other offences have been slammed on Olaniyan by 24 PDP lawmakers.

It is left to be seen how Deputy Governor Rauf Olaniyan of Oyo State will survive this political death knell sounded by lawmakers deemed committed to removing him from office.
