Ebonyi Assembly recalls Minority Leader, Maria Ude Nwachi

The Ebonyi state House of Assembly on Tuesday recalled one of its suspended members, Maria Ude Nwachi (Afikpo Chic), representing Afikpo North/East constituency.

Hon. Ude Nwachi of the PPA, is the minority leader of the house.

The suspension that lasted for month was lifted following  a motion moved on the floor of the assembly by Victor Chukwu, representing Ezza North west constituency and seconded by Onu Nnoye, representing Ohaozara west constituency.

The suspension followed an alleged involvement of the minority leader in a violent protest and breach of peace along Abakaliki/Afikpo federal highway which caused the burning of some vehicles belonging to Enugu Electricity Distribution Company, EEDC.

Mr. Chukwu noted that the suspended minority leader had shown enough remorse and that she had as well served the duration of her suspension.

The Speaker of the House, Francis Nwifuru, put the motion to recall Hon. Ude Nwachi to vote and it was unanimously adopted.
