Menace in Eleme LGA as Lawmakers embark on Impeachment of the council boss, Hon. Barr. Philip Okpara

The legislative arm of the Eleme Local Government Council, on this day the 20th of August, 2020 raised and passed an impeachment letter to the council boss, Hon. Barr. Philip Okparaji.

Reasons of misuse of constitutional funds, and embezzlement. The chairman in his facebook page, declined the move saying it is unlawful.

The Impeachment which was signed by the ten ward councillors making up the whole councillors in the LGA was moved by the speaker of the house and signed by all house members.

The Lawmakers claim to have been disrupted by thugs of the LGA boss and beaten with destruction of council properties; but yet they had to carry out justice on the corruption and put an end to the injustice in the LGA.

In an interview with staff of the council, 70% said they had not been paid three months salaries whereas the money has been disbursed to the council, making the suit valid.
