Imo State Deputy Gov; Agbaso Impeached, Eze Madumere Appointed New Deputy Gov

After many weeks of drama and pregnant atmosphere, the Imo state legislators went into labor this afternoon and delivered a bouncing Easter baby without complications. The Imo State House of Assembly impeached Sir Jude Agbaso from the exalted office of Deputy Governor. It will be recalled that the impeachment process began when a contractor in the state said he gave a whooping N458m naira as bribe to Sir Jude Agbaso in exchange of more contracts. While Agbaso admitted he received a bottle of Blue label porsche from the contractor, he however denied collecting bribe from the contractor (Joseph Dina).

According to reliable information reaching us, 23 out of the 27 legislators voted in the affirmative in total support of the impeachment. Out of the four, we learned that Hon. Kingsley Obimaku (Ehime mbano constituency), Hon. Eugene Dibiagwu (Oguta state constituency) voted in absentia. Hon. Dan Ikpeazu (Owerri North) who was present washed his hands off the impeachment while the Speaker, Rt.Hon. Benjamin Uwajumogu did not vote.
Meanwhile, following the impeachment of Sir Jude Agbaso, the Imo State House of Assembly has confirmed Prince Ezeakonobi Madumere as Deputy Governor.
Prior to this development, His Excellency who hails from Achi-mbieri (Mbaitoli Local government area) served as Chief of Staff to the Governor.
