The Speaker of the Anambra State House of Assembly Rita Maduagwu impeached by her colleagues is fighting back describing her impeachment as a ruse and sheer illegality.
The Speaker who was aided Tuesday to gain access to the Legislative chamber by some government officials, including the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Solo Chukwulobe, countered and described those who allegedly impeached her as “rascals.’’
Maduagwu insisted: “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 restated.
After about two hours of plenary session with 11 members of the House, the Speaker adjourned plenary till Thursday, November 15.
