Speaker of Imo State House of Assembly impeached over misconduct

The members of the Imo State House of Assembly have impeached the speaker, Paul Emeziem.

Paul Emeziem was impeached today.

The Speaker was impeached on Monday by 19 out of 27 members of the State House of Assembly present at the plenary after they all signed an impeachment notice submitted by Amara Iwuanyanwu, former deputy Speaker who was removed last week by some lawmakers.

The House members based the impeachment of Mr. Emeziem on gross misconduct.

In the meantime, the member representing Obowo State Constituency, Kennedy Ibeh, has been elected as the new Speaker of the State House of Assembly.
