Gov Chime may go out with a bang, lawmakers serve impeachment notice

Published

The Enugu State governor, Sullivan Chime may not exit his position quietly if some members of the state’s House of Assembly have their way. The lawmakers on Monday commenced impeachment proceedings against Chime, who has only about three weeks before he hands over.

Fourteen lawmakers, led by the Speaker, Hon. Eugene Odoh sat early in the morning where they read a notice of impeachment against Chime. They accused him of corrupt enrichment and high handedness.

However, eight other lawmakers have voided the process and also allegedly impeached the Speaker, Hon. Odo.

Spokesperson for the governor, Chukwudi Achife has also faulted the impeachment move as he said that Odoh is not the authentic speaker of the House.

Recall that Chime had prepared for his exit and official handing over by moving out of the official Government House lodge, into his private residence, being the first among his colleagues to do such.
