Imo Speaker Denies Impeachment plans Against Gov. Okorocha
Speaker of Imo State House of Assembly Dr. Iheanach Ihim has declared that there was no impeachment process against Governor Rochas Okorocha.
Ihim, who made the clarification in a statement signed by Mr. Marcel Ekwezuo, his Chief Press Secretary in Owerri on Friday, said the governor had carried out his duties within the provisions of the law.
He described the rumour as misleading, and also false the insinuations in some quarters that some members of the House had contemplated instituting impeachment procedures against the governor.
“His Excellency, Owelle Rochas Anayo Okorocha, has so far conducted himself and steered the administrative machinery of Imo State within the most perceived and glaring ambits of the law.
“No member of the Imo House of Assembly has contemplated, even remotely, the misleading allegation of his impeachment,” he said.
According to him, the impeachment proceedings against any state governor is a constitutional matter but added that it is neither done surreptitiously nor stealthily.
“It is an act done in the open; and no member of the State Assembly has any knowledge of the fictitious and imaginary said impeachment procedure.”
