Investigations have revealed that, the former Governor of Abia State, who is now a Senator in the National Assembly, Chief. T A Orji is currently plotting to install his son, Chinedu Orji as the next speaker of the State Assembly.
The move to impeach the current speaker, Hon. Azubuike Martins was sealed with the sum of two hundred million Naira, (N200,000,000). Two third of the House we gathered signed the impeachment process.
Should the plot to impeach Martins fail, Hon. Chinwendu Kalu from Isiala Ngwa South steps in as speaker. Sources say, the target is not the office of speaker, but the office of Governor which will become the next target once the impeachment of the speaker sails through.
As Governor, T.A Ori manipulated the electoral process to make himself a Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and his son popularly known as Ikuku a member of the House of Assembly, so as to checkmate Governor Okezie Voctor Ikpeazu.
The plot which had two plans was to get him removed on 28th December 2016 but was shifted to a date after presentation of 2017 Budget by the Governor.
To save his political career, Secret Reporters learnt that the Speaker has thrown in the towel by tendering his resignation letter to the clerk who will be reading it to the entire house soon.
The Chief Press Secretary to the Speaker, Prince Clinton Uba while speaking with Secret Reporters denied that his boss has resigned but agreed that there is impeachment threat against him. “The Speaker won’t resign in the air. The House has not convened yet for such to take place. Once that is done, we will find out his impeachment offence”, he told us on phone. He added that there is reconciliation process going on to stem the tide.
