Lagos State Governor Akimwummi Ambode, will this morning present the 2019 budget to the state House of Assembly.
The Assembly had been embroiled in crisis with the governor since December 2018 over the non-presentation of the budget by the latter.
This led to the lawmakers threatening to impeach the governor if he failed to abide by the parliamentary tradition.
Though the governor insisted that he had sent the budget to the Assembly on December 28, 2018 , the lawmakers disputed it , insisting that the budget was not before the House.
However, the National leader of All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and other chieftains of the ruling party, on Sunday saved the governor from the planned impeachment.
This followed a special meeting of the Governor’s Advisory Committee (GAC) which held at the Lagos House, Marina, with Tinubu, Ambode and other APC chieftains in attendance.
