It will be recalled that at the plenary on January 28, 2019, there were allegations against Ambode that the 2019 budget, which had not yet been presented to the Assembly, was already incurring expenditure.

The protesters marched to the front of the House complex, bearing placards on which were inscribed: ‘No to Impeachment’, ‘Stop Scaring Investors and Tourists from Lagos’, ‘Let Us Welcome PMB and PYO Peacefully for Lagos Rally’, ‘We Stand with Ambode’, among others.

They also chanted in Yoruba, calling on the Assembly to allow Ambode finish his term in office.
