The difficulty to Makinde’s alleged inclination was that the lawmakers were not favourably disposed to it, allegedly due to harmonious relationship they have with the deputy which they do not enjoy with his principal.

“When the lawmakers were hauled into a hotel by a top member of the Governor’s Advisory Council (GAC) to sell the idea of a likely impeachment of the Deputy Governor, most of them were busy with text and WhatsApp messages (on the spot), leaking reports on how the plot will be hatched. Olaniyan’s strategists were enjoying the game. 
It is clear that any impeachment plot against Engr. Olaniyan would be truncated for now.
