Imo assembly to serve Agbaso impeachment notice

13 March 2013, 11:11

Owerri - Imo State House of Assembly in Owerri on Tuesday passed a motion to serve the State Deputy Governor, Mr Jude Agbaso, an impeachment notice through the media.

The motion was moved by Mr Mike Ndubuaku (Orlu-APGA) at the plenary.

The house also resolved to serve him in his office and in his official residence.

Ndubuaku said all efforts made to reach the deputy governor by the Clerk of the House, Mr Chris Duru, to serve him the notice personally had failed.

According to him, it will be necessary to serve the deputy governor through other ways.

The Speaker of the Assembly,  Mr Benjamin Uwajumogu, had earlier directed the clerk to issue an impeachment notice to the deputy governor to appear before the house.

 The speaker warned that the house would continue with the impeachment process if the deputy governor refused to honour the notice.

 In another development, the publisher and editor of Red Parrot Newspapers, Mr Samuel Aka and Mr Ozirim Eke have  been summoned to appear before the lawmakers over a malicious publication.

The house also summoned the Commissioner for Public Utilities, Ifeanyi Nwachukwu, to appear before it over an interview he granted the newspaper.

Dr Chukwuemeka Ekennia (Ezinihite-PDP) said the Red Parrot publication accused him of misappropriating funds set aside for local government road projects.

He said the paper quoted the commissioner for public utilities to have granted an interview to the editor of the newspaper.

The speaker directed the commissioner and editor to appear before the house on Friday to give more explanations about the publication.
