According to Premium Times, “The Enugu State House of Assembly has removed the state’s Deputy Governor, Sunday Onyebuchi, from office.

The Assembly voted Tuesday morning to sack Mr. Onyebuchi from office.

Details of the impeachment session is still sketchy but the deputy governor’s removal is believed to have been masterminded by Governor Sullivan Chime.

The Assembly accused Mr. Onyebuchi  of operating a commercial poultry at his official residence and of disobeying Governor  Chime, charges that, under the law, do not qualify as impeachment offences.

The impeached deputy governor had told the impeachment panel set up by the state’s chief judge that Mr. Chime also operated a piggery at the Government House.

Giving evidence before the panel last Wednesday, Mr. Onyebuchi said the governor’s poultry was hurriedly evacuated shortly after the panel commenced sitting. 

Mr. Onyebuchi revealed that the state government had budgeted for the maintenance of the poultry since 2011.

The embattled deputy governor, who tendered the state’s budget between 2011 and 2014, said funds had always been provided for the poultry he operated.

He insisted that he did not commit any offence that  should have warranted  his impeachment and that the poultry farms he and the governor operated were there before they assumed office in 2007.”

    In the bible it is written: God said, let us make man in our own image. This is unity. But in this case when the Governor said Deputy Governor let us do this or that, there is disagreement how can they work together. So there must be impeachment to pave way for another loyalty.
