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