The Seven-man panel constituted by the State Chief Judge to investigate allegations of gross misconduct against the deputy governor led to his impeachment.

He was elected in 2019 on a joint ticket with Oyo State governor Seyi Makinde on the platform of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) until his recent defection to the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC).

The majority leader of the Oyo State House of Assembly Sanjo Adedoyin said the deputy governor was found culpable, indicted of all allegations, all complaints leveled against him.

Oyo Assembly said Olaniyan’s removal from office is backed by section 188(9) of the 1999 Constitution (as amended).
