BAYELSA ASSEMBLY ODERS CJ TO RAISE PANEL AGAINST DEPUTY GOVERNOR

Bayelsa State House of Assembly, on Tuesday, passed a resolution, asking the state Chief Judge, Justice Kate Abiri, to constitute a seven-member panel to investigate the allegation leveled against the embattled deputy governor, Honour-able Peremobowei Ebebi.

seventeen members of the House last week signed an impeachment notice which was ordered to be served on all the lawmakers including the deputy governor.

Ebebi was alleged, among other things, of gross misconduct and diversion of N29.6 million allowance for oversea medical treatment as well as demeaning members of the House of Assembly.

Even though an unconfirmed report stated that the embattled deputy governor might head for court, having dropped the idea of resignation, the House unanimously adopted a motion raised by Honourable Fini Angaye representing Kolokuma/Opokuma constituency Two.

Moving the motion, he said, “17 members of the state House of Assembly on Tuesday, 1st of June 2010, signed an impeachment notice against the deputy governor, and the House ordered it to be served on the deputy governor.

“On the 3rd of June, the Clerk of the House delegated his deputy, Mr. Aaron Timie, to carry out the assignment, and the notice was served on the deputy governor in his House in Abuja.

Pursuant to section 188(3)(4), I move a motion that the Chief Judge should be directed to constitute a seven-member panel to look into the allegation of gross misconduct levelled against the deputy governor.”
