On the Impeachment process, Mr. Gbenga statement reads in part;

However, one of the state lawmakers against the move, Mr. Festus Akingbaso, condemned the impeachment notice as he noted that it was unconstitutional. Opposing the impeachment move, he further said that it does not meet two-third of the House Members required by the law.

Similarly, another lawmaker representing Irele Constituency while backing up Mr. Festus opposition affirmed that the impeachment plot would not work.
