Imo Meeting: Ex-Speaker, Chiji Collins to face panel over alleged misappropriation of funds

The impeached Speaker of the Imo state Home of Meeting, Chiji Collins will quickly face an advert hoc committee constituted by the brand new speaker, Paul Emeziem to analyze his monetary actions from June 2019 to November 2020.

This was contained in a movement moved by the member representing Orsu state constituency, Ekene Fredolin Nnodimele at plenary.

Main debate, Nnodimele famous that a part of the explanations the previous speaker was impeached was resulting from his involvement in monetary impropriety and highhandedness.

He recalled {that a} member of the Home, Uju Onwudiwe who represents Njaba state constituency was denied her 4 months wage and allowance whereas she ran for reelection.

In line with him, “throughout this era, the impeached speaker, Chiji Collins was in cost and by no means accounted for all of the monies accruing to the Home.

“It should quickly be a longtime incontrovertible fact that the 4 months wage and allowance of Hon. Uju Onwudiwe has gone into a person’s non-public pocket.

“When the previous Deputy speaker, Okey Onyekanma resigned from his place someday in 2019, the seat was vacant for a number of months and several other emoluments together with wage have been unaccounted for until date.

“This, Mr. Speaker, will function a deterrent to others who might wish to interact in any sharp apply to amass wealth. Lawmaking is vocational and it’s only correct that we set good examples for others to emulate,” he posited.

Chiji Collins is a member representing Isiala-mbano state constituency.

In the meantime, an advert hoc committee has been arrange by the Speaker to analyze the matter.

The committee is chaired by the mover of the movement, Ekene Nnodimele and 5 different members.
