Crisis Looms In Imo House Of Assembly Over Vote Of No Confidence

Crisis may be looming in the Imo state House of Assembly over vote of no confidence on the speaker of the house, Acho Ihim.

Investigations show that twenty-one lawmakers of the house are behind the vote of no confidence.

The lawmakers on Wednesday asked Ihim to step aside after he was served a notice of impeachment.

Calls for Ihim’s impeachment are hinged on a 10- count allegation bordering on gross misconduct, misappropriation of house funds, negligence of duty and illegally subduing legislative activities.

While making a resolution for the Speaker to step aside, Lawmaker representing Onuimo State Constituency, Chinedu Offor has been elected the Pro Tem Speaker of the House while allegations against the Speaker are been investigated.

It was also revealed that the majority leader of the House, Mr Lugard Osuji has been removed and replaced by Mr Lloyd Chukwuemeka.
