Ebonyi Lawmakers Renew Moves To Impeach Governor Elechi

FROM IGNATIUS OKPARA, Abakaliki – Despite the recent purported reconciliation between Governor Martin Elechi of Ebonyi state, and his political foes, led by his Deputy and Governor- elect, Dave Umahi, the State’s House of Assembly on Monday froze the account of Local Government Areas and Development Centres in the state over alleged financial impropriety.

The lawmakers, also froze the joint accounts between the council areas and state government following their inability to execute remarkable projects which impacted on the lives of Ebonyi people with the monies accrued to them

AFRICAN EXAMINER gathered that the assembly equally passed a resolution stopping the sale of forms and allocation of shops at the international market built by Governor Elechi, on the ground that the project was still ongoing.

It however, described the action of allocating uncompleted shops to people as fraudulent.

Moving a motion for the frozen of the LGAs accounts, a member representing Onicha East, Hon. Obasi Odefa, said the action became necessary because of the rot in the system over the years.

The motion was, seconded by Hon. Frank Onwe, representing Ohaukwu North constituency.

Odefa alleged that Chairmen of the council areas and development centres had not executed meaningful projects except cutting of grasses, insisting that there was no accountability in the system.

He said any bank operating the accounts of the council areas that failed to comply with the directives of the House would be blacklisted for a period of eight years, adding that only salaries should be paid to the council areas.
