From Ignatius Okpara, Abakiliki – The political crisis rocking Ebonyi state, Friday took a new twist as the state House of Assembly served an impeachment notice on the embattled Governor, Martin Elechi.
The House said the decision was informed by what it described as act of gross misconduct by the Governor.
Reading the notice at the plenary, the acting leader of the House, Hon. Francis Nwifruru, had accused the octogenarian Governor, of huge financial misappropriation, undermining the integrity of the House, among other political misgivings.
The motion for the notice was however, moved by Hon. Odefa Obasi Odefa and seconded by Hon. Valentine Okike.
