IMO STATE HOUSE SPEAKER, PAUL EMEZIEM IMPEACHED
…as removed Deputy Speaker takes his pound of flesh
In what appears to be a reprisal, the crisis rocking the Imo State House of Assembly has taken a fresh dimension, following the impeachment of the Speaker of the House, PAUL EMEZIEM by the Lawmakers this morning.
The latest crisis rocking the House began last week Tuesday, November 2nd, 2021, when the the Deputy Speaker of Imo State House of Assembly, Rt Hon. AMARACHI IWUANYANWU was impeached.
The impeached Deputy Speaker, IWUANYANWU is being fingered as spearheading the plot that impeached his former boss, whom he in turn suspected to have aided his own removal last week.
Sources confided in BraveViews that IWUANYANWU stormed the chamber early this (Monday) morning and got his colleagues to effect the removal of the Speaker.
About 19 out of the 27 members of the House voted in the impeachment of the Speaker.
Already, the impeached Speaker has been replaced with KENNEDY IBE.
He was accused of gross misconduct and abuse of office.
Recall that barely two weeks after 8 out of 24 Lawmakers in the Plateau State House of Assembly impeached its Speaker, ABOK AYUBA.
