The Majority leader of Imo State House of Assembly and member representing Owerri Municipal Council, Hon. Lugard Igwe has resigned from his position as leader of the ruling party APC in the House.
Hon. Lugard Igwe took to Facebook to write, “I have this morning in interest of Imo State House of Assembly resign my position as the Majority Leader of the House.”
The resignation will surely have something to do with the recent fracas among lawmakers in the state which led them to shun Gov. Rochas Okorocha on the day he was supposed to present the 2018 budget to them.
The issue has also seen the axing of the Clerk of the House, Chief Chris Duru on the ground of “under-performance and non-compliance‘’ to certain laid down rules and procedures of the House in the discharge of his duties.
Also, a 5-Man Committee led by Hon. Kennedy Ibeh (Obowo State Constituency) has been set up by Speaker Acho Ihim, to investigate activities of the suspended Clerk, beginning from 2011 to date.
The real reasons to why Hon. Lugard Osuji has resigned from his position is yet to be known and we will dig deep to get the information.
