Imo Deputy Speaker, Amara Iwuanyanwu impeached

The Deputy Speaker of the Imo State House of Assembly, Amara Chyna Iwuanyanwu was on Tuesday impeached for an undisclosed reason.

This followed a resolution signed by 18 out of the 27 lawmakers.

Amara represents Nwangele state constituency.

This is even as the six suspended lawmakers have been recalled after about four months of suspension for unparliamentary actions.

The suspended six lawmakers who were recalled includes Hon Uche Ogbuagu (APC, Ikeduru), Dominic Ezerioha (APC, Oru West), Micheal Crown (APC, Ihitte Uboma), Kennedy Ibe (APC, Obowo) Anyadike Nwosu, ( PDP, Ezinihitte Mbaise), and Phillip Ejiogu (PDP, Owerri North) have been recalled.

During plenary, the Speaker Paul Emeziem read out the resolution on the floor of the house on Tuesday, when the lawmakers resumed sitting which was adopted. No reason was given for the removal.

Some lawmakers who pleaded anonymity, alleged that the impeached Deputy Speaker was high-handed and overtly ambitious.

They were suspended for “unparliamentary action” on July 8th, 2021. The house will resume sitting on Thursday.
