Benue Assembly issues impeachment notice on Governor Ortom

Eight out of the 30 lawmakers of the Benue State House of Assembly have served impeachment notice on Governor Samuel Ortom.

The eight have also taken over the premises of the assembly while police maintained a huge presence outside, Tahav Agerzua, a spokesperson for Mr Ortom said.

“They have taken over the House of Assembly and served the governor an impeachment notice despite a court order forbidding them from doing so,” Mr Agerzua told newsmen.

Mr Agerzua said George Akume, a former governor and APC senator from the state, brought police officers from Abuja to use eight lawmakers to impeach a governor in a House of 30 lawmakers.

The impeachment plot is reportedly being coordinated by Terkimbi Ikyange who was removed as speaker of the assembly last week.

Its also coming barely a few days after Mr Ortom defected from the APC to the PDP.

Meanwhile, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) members of the House of Representatives have condemned the unfolding political crisis in Benue State.

The PDP caucus, led by the Deputy Minority Leader, Mr Chukwuka Onyema, has just addressed a press conference on the matter, describing it as “an illegality and gross violation of the 1999 Constitution.”
