The Imo state House of Assembly has impeached its majority leader, Uche Ogbuagu.
Ogbuagu who represents Ikeduru state constituency was impeached on Thursday 4th March,2021 by a majority vote.
The assembly’s speaker Paul Emezim, announced the impeachment.
Ogbuagu, representing Ikeduru State Constituency, was elected under the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), but defected to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
His defection, which came shortly after Emeka Ihedioha was removed as governor in January 2020 by the Supreme Court, was to enable him emerge as principal officer of the house.
Since then, he’s been in constant disagreement with some principal officers of the assembly.
