The Abia House of Assembly has adjourned indefinitely as the Deputy Speaker, Mr Ifeanyi Uchendu and the Majority Leader, Chief Solomon Akpulonu, narrowly escaped being removed from their positions.
The Deputy Majority Leader, Chief Paul Taribo, of (PDP–Ukwa East) had moved the motion for the removal of the two principal officers.
The Minority Leader, Chief Chijioke Chukwu, (APC—Bende South) supported the motion.
Reports say the development caused commotion and delayed proceeding as shout of order by the Speaker, Mr Chinedum Orji, was ignored. He had demanded reasons for their removal and evidence for the allegation which said not be unconnected with incompetence, but none was given.
The House had earlier confirmed the nominations of Mr Henry Balogu, Mr Clement Ugorji, Mrs Ngozi Ukwenyi and Mrs Joy Nwakamma as Chairman and members of the State Judicial Service Commission respectively.
