Ignatius Okpara, Enugu
Following his alleged disappearance from the state, the Enugu State House of Assembly on Thursday during its plenary session, resolved to serve the Deputy Governor of the state, Mr. Sunday Onyebuchi,his impeachment notice via substituted means.
African Examiner reports that the embattled Deputy Governor, who is facing impeachment threat over alleged misconduct in office was last seen on Monday at a public function, where he represented his boss, Governor Sullivan Chime.
However, the state House of Assembly which read his impeachment notice last Tuesday said since Onyebuchi, is no where to be found, he will be served through substituted means.
According to Speaker of the Assembly, Eugen Odoh, the House decided to adopt the substituted means because ” every means to serve the Deputy Governor the impeachment notice by the Clerk of the House, Mr. Christopher Amadi Chukwura failed to yield dividends because the deputy governor could not be found to serve him the impeachment notice personally.
“The decision to adopt the substituted means came as a result of the explanations given by the clerk of the house, Mr. Chukwura that he tried on several occasions to serve the impeachment notice on the deputy as he was directed to do by the House on Tuesday to no avail.
The lawmakers, had during the plenary session yesterday resolved to mandate the Clerk of the House, Chukwura to serve the impeachment notice on the deputy governor by posting the impeachment notice at his official residential quarters, his private residence at Savage Crescent, GRA, Enugu as well as to post the offensive impeachment notice through his e-mail address.
Moving the motion for the substituted means, Leader of the House, Hon. SK Ude Okoye, representing Awgu North stated thus, “the House do hereby pass a resolution directing that the Deputy Governor be served the impeachment notice by a substituted means.”
The members who came to the hallowed chambers in a tense and charged atmosphere did not say much but concurred to the motion moved by the leader of the house that a substituted means be adopted in serving the impeachment notice.
