From Paul Ibe, Enugu

The political crisis rocking Ebonyi state on Friday, took a new twist, as the State House of Assembly served an impeachment notice on the embattled Governor, Martin Elechi.

The House said the decision was informed by what it described as act of gross misconduct by the Governor.

Reading the notice at the plenary, the acting leader of the House, Francis Nwifuru, had accused the octogenarian governor of huge financial misappropriation, undermining of the integrity of the House, among other Political sins.

The motion for the notice was however, moved by Hon. Odefa Obasi Odefa and seconded by Hon. Valentine Okike

Our Correspondent reports that Governor Elechi, his Deputy and PDP gubernatorial candidate, Dave Umahi, Secretary to Government of the Federation Chief Anyim Pius Anyim, former governor of the state, Dr. Sam Egwu, amongst other political leaders in the area, have been at logger head, over who controls the ruling party structure.
