Imo lawmakers want Speaker sacked

*They lack capacity to remove me


Some of the lawmakers in the Imo State House of Assembly have signed documents calling for the call of the Speaker, Dr. Chiji Collins.

It was gathered that about 22 out of the 27 members have signed to commence the impeachment process.

This is expected to begin immediately the House reconvenes. It was shut two weeks ago over coronavirus scare.

The speaker has been asked to resign or be sacked. The members are accusing him of greed and usurpation of powers of the chairmen of various house committees.

A member, Frank Ugboma, said: “The people we represent, now see us as Alleluia boys of the executive arm just because our Speaker kowtows to the bidding of the executive even on critical issues of governance.”

The Media Assistant to the Speaker, Emeka Ahaneku, described the move as voice of the opposition whose interest was to get at the governor.
