Enugu lawmakers begin process to impeach governor.

Lawmakers in Enugu State on Monday
morning began impeachment
proceeding against Governor Sullivan
Chime. He is accused of high handedness and corrupt enrichment.

The state government dismisses the alleged plot to remove the Governor.

The Governor’s spokesman, Chukwudi
Achife, said Speaker Eugene Odoh, has
been removed and a new Speaker
elected.

Reports from Enugu say that the governor had asked the state assembly to approve the funds for a secretariat project, but he was turned down by the
state assembly.

The unapproved N11bn allegedly led to
the power play between members of
the House of Assembly and the state government.

The Governor then allegedly induced
some members of the assembly with some money to impeach the House Speaker, Eugene Odoh.
