It will take a miracle for Gov. Martin Elechi of Ebonyi state to complete his tenure if political development in the state is anything to go by. After his candidate for the PDP governorship ticket, Prof. Onyebuchi Chukwu was disgraced and the governor himself embarrassed during the primaries, hell has been let loose in his political camp.
See story from our Paul Ibeh below:
The ongoing feud between Governor Martin Elechi of Ebonyi state, and Secretary to Government of the Federation, Pius Anyim, on Tuesday took a new twist as members of the state Assembly loyal to the nation’s scribe, sacked all the council chairmen appointed by the governor.
The State House of Assembly, had through a resolution during its sitting, dissolved the caretaker committee chairmen of the13 local government areas, and the 28 newly appointed coordinators of the
Development Centres in the state.
The House, which sat with 18 out of 24 members within a few minutes, also demanded that the Governor should submit details of the state financial accounts to it.
According to the lawmakers, such account must specify the total amount the state received from the statutory monthly federal allocations, the Internally Generated Revenue,and funds gotten from international donor agencies, among others. The required information they said, must reach the Assembly on Friday, January 9, 2015.
Besides, the legislators equally directed that membership of boards of government agencies remain dissolved.
Ruling on the motion earlier, Speaker of the House Chukwuma Nwazunku, had noted that the constitution of the caretaker committees and coordinators were unconstitutional.
