The Majority Leader of the Imo State House of Assembly, Uche Ogbuagu has been impeached by his colleagues.

Ogbuagu, representing the Ikeduru state constituency, was impeached by the state lawmakers during the House plenary Thursday.

Ogbuagu was elected under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). He, however, dumped the party for the All Progressives Congress after Emeka Ihedioha was sacked by the Supreme Court in January 2020 as the governor of the state.

His defection to APC saw him to later emerge as a principal officer of the house. But on Thursday, he was booted out of the office after the majority of the lawmakers voted for his removal.

Ogbuagu’s impeachment was announced by the House Speaker, Paul Emezim, who presided over the plenary.

There are speculations that what happened to the Majority Leader of the Imo State Assembly may not  be unconnected with his alleged rift with the Deputy Speaker, Amarachi Iwuanyanwu.
