Imo APC Vanguard has called for the immediate suspension of the Speaker Imo State House of Assembly, Rt.Hon. Paul Emeziem on the grounds of anti-party and undemocratic activities in the state.
The leader of the political and active group in the APC, Mr. John Imoh while addressing news men in Owerri decried the level and manner of impunity perpetrated by the Speaker against his colleagues and the desecration of the revered hallowed chambers of the Imo State House of Assembly over selfish and inordinate ambition of the speaker.
Describing the anti-party activities of the Speaker, Mr. John highlighted that the Speaker is being used by opposition elements in the state by stirring up rancor in the state House of Assembly through the impeachment of the Deputy Speaker on grounds only known to him and his co-travelers and to distract the state government.
He stated that the Speaker has been undemocratic and his actions unconstitutional such as withholding of House members allowances, illegal suspension of 6 House members, amongst many others and called on the lawmakers to swiftly act by suspending the Speaker if they truly wants to protect the little integrity of the State legislature that has been abused by the Speaker.
The leadership of the group further called on the state leadership of the APC to quickly take necessary actions on the Speaker as his anti-party activities are against the constitution of the APC.
The Speaker, Paul Emeziem has been caught in the webs of socio-political groups in the state that has constantly called for his immediate suspension over his activities lately that shows clear abuse of power and threat to the peace of the state.
