Impeached Imo deputy speaker re-instated

Amarachi Iwuanyanwu, the impeached deputy speaker of Imo State House of Assembly has been re-instated.

Mr Iwuanyanwu who was removed last week has retaken his position during plenary on Monday but this was not after the removal of Paul Emeziem as the speaker of the house.

TODAY POLITICS learnt that the re-instated lawmaker stormed the chamber earlier and got the support of 19 of his colleagues to boot out Mr Emeziem who spearheaded his removal.

The house immediately announced Kennedy Ibe as replacement for the ousted speaker.
