Impeachment: Elechi must go –Speaker swears



Even though more members are against the action, Speaker of the Ebonyi State House of Assembly, Chukwuma Nwanzuku, on Wednesday said that the House is still committed to the move to impeach Governor Martins Elechi.

He stated this in a statement he issued in reaction to reports that seven lawmakers have backed out of the impeachment plot.

The Minority Leader, Enyi C. Enyi, had, at a press briefing on Tuesday, announced that seven members of Ebonyi State House of Assembly, who were part of the 15 lawmakers that voted in favour of the move to remove the governor, had withdrawn from the impeachment plot against Elechi.

But the Speaker has denied the Minority Leader’s claims.

The Speaker insisted that all the Peoples Democratic Party members of the House are “intact” and committed to the bid to remove the governor over alleged acts of gross misconduct.

He vowed that no conspiracy or mischief would deter them from carrying out their constitutional responsibilities to a logical conclusion.
