Anambra State Speaker Escapes Impeachment


The embattled Speaker of the Anambra State House of Assembly, Rita Maduagwu, has described her purported impeachment as “a bundle of illegality.”
Describing those who allegedly impeached her as “rascals,” Maduagwu said, “Nobody can impeach me because I have not committed any offence.
“They didn ’t have any power known to any law to impeach me.
“They need two- thirds of our members to impeach the Speaker or the governor. So, I’m still the Speaker.”
Maduagwu, who was rallied round by some government officials, including the Secretary to the State Government, Solo Chukwulobe, regained access to the chamber after about two hours and held a session with 11 members.
She adjourned the House sitting till November 15.
