Anambra State Assembly Speaker, Ms Rita Mmaduagwu, was reportedly impeached during Tuesday’s plenary at the Assembly chamber in Awka, the state capital.
The Anambra State Assembly Speaker who was impeached on the grounds of incompetence, docility, financial impropriety and high-handedness, was replaced Mr Ikem Uzoezie who moved the motion for impeachment.
