Madumere Impeachment Suffers Serious Setback, Dep. Governor Heads to Court as Some Assembly Members Backs Out.


Although the forces spear-heading the impeachment of Imo State Deputy Governor, Prince Eze Madumere are bent on removing him from office, but the legal processes to be followed in actualizing such a herculean task is turning a hurdle for the executors of the project. More so, the Presidency is said to have intervened and concluded arrangements to stop the action. Information available to the newspaper has it that the Presidency is disturbed at the development and has set a machinery in motion to ensure Madumere is not removed.
The move of the Presidency, as it was further gathered was to call the governor of the State to order as well instruct the members of the House to refrain from such act.
Authoritative sources privy to the move of the Presidency, told Our sources in Abuja that Aso Rock is irked at the constant squabbles in Imo State chapter of APC and unhappy that Governor Okorocha is fueling the ambers of crisis by using lawmakers loyal to him to cause instability.
Already, a reach-out to the governor has been made and Federal lawmakers of Imo State APC extraction contacted to enter into the matter and stop the impeachment.
A Federal lawmaker, Hon Raphael Nnanna Igbokwe was spotted at the Villa. His presence is not unconnected to the resolve of the Presidency to use highly placed Imolites at federal legislature to call the lawmakers and governor to order.
The worries of the Presidency leading to its intervention arises from the desire to ensure peace in Imo APC after the convention. The Presidency was surprised how the Governor who is preaching for reconciliation and had set up a committee for peace would watch his Deputy removed alongside five suspended lawmakers of the House.
From all indications, the expected smooth sail of the project by the sponsors of the plot is not going as envisaged as the impeachment process in running into bottle necks that may create time for Madumere to fight back and wriggle out of the trap.
According to Trumpeta  before such constitutional matter is carried out to the letter, it must follow the following procedures, the House members must meet to form a quorum, deliberate on the petition, set up a committee to look into the sin of the subject, serve the subject involved and move the exercise to the office of the Chief Judge of the State, who sets up a panel to investigate the allegations who pronounces its verdict,
