ABEOKUTA — The Labour Party in Ogun State,  yesterday, urged members  of  the state   House of Assembly to commence impeachment process against the  state governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun over the political crisis in Abeokuta and Ewekoro.

The party which said  Amosun  had demonstrated his irresponsible tendencies through  the political recklessness of terror to scare opposition parties, claimed that the governor had  failed  the people of the state in  the area of protection of lives and property.

The Labour Party in its statement jointly signed by the state Chairman,  Olabode Simeon and Secretary,  Sunday Ogini accused the governor of allegedly sponsoring political thugs to unleash terror on some members of the  All progressives Congress, APC,  during the two  recent violent attacks.

But, in a swift reaction, the state Commissioner for Information and Strategies,  Yusuph Olaniyonu described LP members as  bundle of jokers, who according to him, are  too idle.

Olaniyonu said that,  Ogun “is safer during the Ibikunle Amosun led administration than before  when the party’s  leader was in power.”

Explaining why it called for the impeachment of the governor, the LP said the two violent clashes in Abeokuta and Ewekoro which involved  three Senators and other  members  of APC  where  eight persons including policemen were hit by bullets, were enough reasons for the governor to be impeached.

Olaniyonu,  in his reaction said: “ We are busy with governance.  Everybody knows that lives are more secure and safer in Ogun State.

“Ogun State is 1,000 per cent safer than before when their leader was in power.

“ They should be busy.  We are busy constructing  roads, we are busy building schools, we are busy  fulfilling the  mandate of the people.

“They should provide best alternatives. They are just grand- standing,  playing to gallery and taking time in mischief.”
