The ongoing political drama and power tussle at the Imo State House of Assembly  took a new twist Thursday, May 16, as the deputy speaker, Ugonna Ozurigbo tendered his resignation letter.

The deputy speaker’s resignation came less than 24 house after 21 out of the 27 state lawmakers served impeachment notices on the speaker, AchoIhim and the majority leader, Lugard Osuji, after suspending them.

The lawmakers who elected Chinedu Offor (Onuimo) as the acting speaker and Lloyd Chukwuemeka (Owerri North), the new majority leader, said the two suspended principal officers had engaged in un-parliamentary conduct by escaping with the mace during Wednesday’s plenary.

The resignation letter which was sighted by Elombah correspondent in Owerri on Thursday morning, was dated May 15, but was received by the office of the Clerk of the State House of Assembly on May 16.

The letter of resignation which Ozurigbo personally signed was addressed to the speaker and members of the state House of Assembly.
