The Imo State House of Assembly says; “there is no impeachment moves pending against Governor Rochas Okorocha in the State Assembly.”
In a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Marcel Ekwezuo, the Speaker, Imo State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon (Dr.) Acho Ihim noted that, Okorocha has so far conducted himself and steered the administrative machinery of Imo State within the most perceived and glaring ambits of the law, and no member of the Imo State House of Assembly has contemplated, even remotely the misleading allegation of his impeachment charge.”
According to Ihim, “the impeachment procedure of any state Governor is a constitutional matter and it is neither done surreptitiously nor stealthily.
It is an act done in the open; and no member of the State Assembly has any knowledge of the fictitious and imaginary said impeachment procedure.”
The statement further quotes the Speaker as saying that, “it beats my imagination on how an obscure and imaginary Television station operating outside the shores of Imo state could be the harbinger of story of such magnitude when there is a plethora of refined, reliable and reputable Mass Media in Imo State.”
He explained that fake news and other morally degenerate stories are the stock in – trade of that lowly rated and generally unknown non conventional Television station.
Ihim therefore enjoined relevant publics of the people and government of Imo State to discountenance the falsehood of Okorocha’s alleged impeachment for what it is – a lie from the pit of hell.”
