Abia Assembly denies impeachment plot against Orji

The Abia State House of Assembly has debunked the rumoured plan to impeach Governor Theodore Orji, describing the speculation making the rounds in some parts of the state as baseless and unfounded.

Deputy Speaker and House Committee Chairman on Information, Alwell Okere, who made the clarifications on Thursday in Umuahia, said the rumour did not emanate from the House.

Okere said the Assembly maintained the best of relationships with the governor, adding that, “the issue of impeachment is unimaginable.”

He attributed the rumour to government detractors and mischief-makers, whose intention, according to him, is to cause confusion in the state.

Briefing journalists on the activities of the lawmakers in the month, Okere said the House had passed three important bills into law including the Abia State Physical Planning and Infrastructural Amendment Law, the Abia State Local Government Transition Law and the Local Government Council Appropriation Law.

He added that the House had passed six resolutions, including expedition of work on the Amofufe Igbere in Bende LGA erosion site and the collapsed Igwu River Bridge at Ndiebe Abam in Arochukwu LGA.

The deputy speaker said the House had amended the Abia State Multi-Door Court Law 2014 aimed at promoting alternative conflict resolution.

The Assembly also condemned the slow pace of work on the deplorable Enugu–Port Harcourt Expressway, which it described as a death trap.
