Court Nullifies Imo Deputy Governor’s Impeachment

The political tension in IMO state is gradually reducing as the state High Court sitting in Owerri on Tuesday declared the impeachment of Eze Madumere, Imo state deputy governor by lawmakers as invalid and of no legal effect.

The court’s nullification is on the ground that Mr Madumere’s impeachment did not follow due process, therefore making it illegal.

Mr Madumere was impeached on July 30, 2018, by 19 out of the 27 member-assembly on allegations of absence without reasons for a period of three months and a failure to perform constitutional duties like attending state executive and state security council meetings.
