Imo State Assembly commences impeachment proceedings against dep gov

Imo State House of Assembly commenced impeachment proceedings against the state deputy governor, Eze Madumere.

The House accused the deputy governor of gross misconduct.

Mr Madumere had fallen out with Governor Rochas Okorocha over succession to the governorship seat next year when Mr Okorocha ends his second term.

The deputy governor was said to have pitched tent with another faction to wrest control of the APC from Mr Okorocha during the party’s ward, local government and state congresses.

The impeachment plot has been brewing for some time now and is a continuation of the battle for 2019 between the duo.

The House had last month suspended four lawmakers for being allegedly loyal to the deputy governor and opposing the impeachment plot.
