Ebonyi Assembly begins impeachment proceedings against Gov. Elechi
The Ebonyi State House of Assembly on Friday resolved to serve an impeachment notice on Governor Martin Elechi after accusing the governor of corruption and misconduct.
The reolution followed a motion for the notice to be served on the governor, which was moved by the acting Majority Leader of the House, Francis Nwifruru, and approved by the House.
The legislators accused the governor of committing fraudulent acts and undermining the integrity of the House.
The assembly had, on February 18, set up a panel to investigate allegations of financial misappropriation against the governor and some of his aides.
The assembly took the decision following petitions it received from groups in the state, including Ebonyi Integrity Group. In one of the petitions, the governor; his son, Elechi Elechi; and Edward Nkwegu, among others, were accused of contract inflation and illegal use of state funds for private gains.
