Abia State News – Six days after being ousted from office, Chief Martins Azubuike, the former Speaker, Abia House of Assembly, says his uprightness cost him the job.
Azubuike, who made the disclosure on Sunday at a reception by his community, Umunneato-Ngwa, said he was impeached because of not consenting to the sharing of funds meant for projects.
He said, instead: “I chose to deploy available funds to projects and not sharing it among members’’.
The reception was organised by Umunneato-Ngwa, a socio-cultural body.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the group comprises three sister-local government areas of Osisioma Ngwa, Isiala Ngwa North and Isiala Ngwa South of the state.
Azubuike, highly revered by workers in the House of Assembly for his experience as a third-term legislator, listed the projects executed during his more than one year tenure as Speaker.
According to him, the projects include the completion of an office complex for the 24 legislators which was started in 2007.
Azubuike said other projects were the computerisation of the operations and a website for the Assembly to enable members to track its activities from within and outside the complex.
He said that he also procured vehicles for the members and two buses for committee assignments by members.
