Suspended Abia Assembly Members Recalled

Abia State House of Assembly has resolved its crises and recalled some members suspended on May 2, 2023.

The House, however, announced that the former Deputy Speaker, Ifeanyi Uchendu, who was impeached on May 2 as the Deputy Speaker through a House Resolution, remained impeached.

It maintained that Hon Mandela Obasi, who replaced Uchendu, retains his seat.

The Abia parliament stated that the actions and inactions of the House members created a crisis in the House.

The House would reconvene on May 26 to hold an extraordinary session for the presentation and consideration of End-of Tenure Reports from Committees.

But in a swift reaction, one of the recalled members, Hon Chijioke Chukwu, who confirmed the peace agreement, however, said Uchendu should be returned to his seat if a true reconciliation would be achieved.
