How Delta speaker was impeached, suspended

The speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly, Chief Monday Igbuya, was on Thursday morning impeached over allegations of financial misappropriation and highhandedness.

Igbuya was replaced by the member representing Okpe Constituency, Chief Sheriff Oborevwori.

It was learnt that the Deputy Speaker, Mr. Friday Osanebi, presided at the assembly sitting where the former speaker, Igbuya, was impeached alongside the Majority Leader, Tim Owhofere.

Our correspondent reliably gathered that the sitting started about 7:06am which was against the usual 10am for sitting by the House, and was fully attended by members excluding the impeached principal officers.

The lawmakers also suspended the impeached speaker for three months while the former Majority Leader who has now been replaced by Mr. Johnson Erijo was, however, handed an indefinite suspension.

At the end of the sitting, the new Speaker and other members then proceeded to the Government House to intimate the state Governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, of the changes in the house leadership.

The governor was still at a closed-doors meeting with the assembly members as of the time of filing this report.

Efforts to reach the impeached speaker for reaction to the development proved abortive.
