Abia State House of Assembly Speaker, Rt. Hon. Chinedum Orji, has been impeached.
Chinedum, son of immediate past Abia Governor, Senator TA Orji, was impeached on Tuesday at about 9am. News Express gathered that About 18 members of the Assembly signed for the impeachment with the exception of two persons.
Hon Solomon Akpulonu had moved the motion for the impeachment and was seconded by Hon. Chijioke Chukwu (Bende North).
Details of his impeachment are still sketchy as at the time of filling this report but may however not be unconnected with the alleged unwillingness of the Speaker to commence impeachment proceedings against the state governor, Dr Okezie Victor Ikpeazu.
Deputy Speaker of the Assembly, Ifeanyi Uchendu representing Ohafia South confirmed the impeachment to Journalists in Umuahia, the state capital on Tuesday but did not disclose other information.
Rt. Hon. Orji, son of the former Governor Theodore A. Orji had lost his bid to represent Ikwuano/Umuahia federal constituency in the House of representatives in the just concluded general elections.
