Oyo State House of Assembly, under the speakership of Rt. Hon. Debo Ogundoyin have impeached the Deputy Governor, Rauf Olaniyan after the adoption of the reports of the investigative panel set up by the chief justice of the state.
Recall, on July 14, 2022, an Oyo State High Court, sitting in Ibadan dismissed the suit filed by the Deputy Governor of the state, Engineer Rauf Olaniyan, to stop the state House of Assembly from removing him.
This was after state’s House of Assembly, levelled five allegations against the state Deputy Governor, Rauf Olaniyan.
The Deputy Governor who has been having a ground battle with the Governor, Seyi Makinde, on June 5, 2022, defected from Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to All Progressives Congress (APC).
This followed an insinuation that the governor was planning to pick another person as running mate for the 2023 general elections.
