My Impeachment Signatures Were Forged, I Remain Kogi Speaker, Says Jimoh-Lawal

lawal-momoh-jimoh-500The erstwhile Speaker of the Kogi State House of Assembly, Hon. Momoh Jimoh-Lawal, on Thursday denied that he had been impeached.

The Kogi Assembly is 25-member strong comprising 14 PDP and 11 APC lawmakers.

Hon. Jimoh-Lawal was impeached by 17 members of the House on Thursday over allegations of financial misconduct.

But the embattled lawmaker insisted that his purported removal did not follow due process.

According to Jimoh-Lawal, the signatures of lawmakers that reportedly supported his impeachment were forged, saying the police will be invited to investigate the matter.

“I remain the Speaker”, he asserted.
