The opposition, All Progressives Congress, APC, in the South-East zone has described the alleged impeachable offences brought against Onyebuchi as flimsy and appealed to the House to withdraw the “flimsy petitions” forthwith.
The Assembly, tuesday, commenced impeachment proceedings against the state deputy governor, Sunday Onyebuchi, who was accused of gross misconduct and disobedience to the lawful directives of Governor Sullivan Chime.
The party, in a statement by its chieftain in the zone, Chief Osita Okechukwu, said: “We have made a close study of the allegations such as disobedience to the directive prohibiting the maintenance of commercial livestock in residential quarters and disobedience of lawful directive to represent the governor in the South-East Governors Forum and the flag-off of the second Niger Bridge.
“Whereas, we are not holding brief for Chief Onyebuchi, APC South-East is of the candid view that the items listed are flimsy allegations; therefore we appeal to the House to withdraw the flimsy petitions forthwith.
“Consequently, we call on the Governor to call the House to order, to maintain the harmonious and peaceful atmosphere that subsist in Enugu for which we praise him;. We can see the hand of Esau and the voice of Jacob.”
“We are making this appeal not only for the sustenance of our fledgling democracy, but in the collective interest of the good people of Enugu State.”
