Imo Assembly Impeaches Deputy Governor

     

    The Imo State House of Assembly has impeached the Deputy Governor, Mr Eze Madumere.

    He was impeached on Monday by 19 out of the 27 member-assembly.

    The Speaker of the House, Acho Ihim, said the impeachment followed the outcome of a report of a 7-man panel, constituted by the Chief Judge of the state to investigate allegations of gross misconduct.

    The allegations were premised on four reasons which included his absence without reasons for a period of three months and a failure to perform constitutional duties like attending state executive and state security council meetings.

    Others included his alleged failure to attend meetings with the governor and other government functionaries as well as an alleged concealment of felonious acts in the United States.

    Meanwhile, Mr Callistus Ekenze, who was until this morning the Head of Service in the state has been nominated by the governor as the new deputy.

    The Speaker read out the nomination letter on the floor of the house immediately after the impeachment.

    This comes hours after some lawmakers in the Benue Assembly served an impeachment notice on the Governor, Samuel Ortom.

    The development came after the governor defected from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) last week.

    Days after, the speaker of the house, Mr Terkimbi Ikyange, was impeached and eventually suspended for allegedly mobilising police personnel to the assembly complex to deny members access to the chamber.
