The Deputy Governor of Kogi State, Simon Achuba, says the impeachment move by the state House of Assembly against him was orchestrated by governor Yahaya Bello.

He said that instead of addressing the issues of corruption that he has raised, the governor is “looking for his downfall”.

Achuba said this while speaking as a guest on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Wednesday.

He also described all claims suggesting that he is planning to decamp to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), as ‘lies from the pit of hell’.

He said the impeachment is a reaction to the revelations that he has made regarding the polity in the state.

Achuba urged the people of the state to be calm and go about their businesses peacefully, stressing that at the end of the day, the one who is on the right will be known.

The deputy governor further stated that impeachment is not about party membership, adding that there is no relationship between the impeachment process and the claims of his decamping.

He assured the people of Kogi State and the APC that he remains a member of the ruling party, adding that he will continue to serve the people as a member of the party.
