Dss-Magic Fm

The Anambra state Command of the Department of State Services (DSS) on Tuesday invited Hon Ikem Uzoezie, factional speaker of Anambra State Assembly over the protracted feud rocking the house.

The assembly has been in crisis, following the purported impeachment of the Speaker, Mrs Rita Maduagwu, and her replacement with Ikem Uzoezie, in which the former denied that she had been impeached from office.

The invitation of Uzoezie, was to explain his role in the fraca, which has kept the assembly in the news for close to a month, and the eventual sealing off of the complex.

Meanwhile, Hon Rita Maduagwu, the purported removed Speaker of the House on Tuesday presided over a sitting of the House which held very early in the morning.

The invitation by the DSS may have been responsible for the absence of the factional Speaker, Uzoezie, who was conspicuously absent, including some of his loyalists.

During the sitting, the member representing Ayamelum constituency, Uchenna Okafor, moved a motion, passing a vote of confidence on the Speaker, Maduagwu, seconded by Lawrence Ezeudu.

Also, the member representing Anambra east constituency, Obinna Emenaka described the Speaker as a virtuous woman, whose character earned her the Chairmanship of the conference of speakers in the Southeast zone.

Meanwhile, Anambra State Governor, Chief Willie Obiano, will on Wednesday present the 2019 appropriation bill of Anambra to the state House of Assembly.
