Why we can’t impeach Uduaghan —Delta Assembly

Delta State House of Assembly, yesterday, said it could not commence impeachment process against Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan, on frivolous petition, passing a vote of confidence on the Governor for his policies and programmes aimed at improving the living standard of citizens.

In a motion on matters of urgent importance, raised by the Deputy Majority Leader, Mr Johnson Erijo, the House also passed a vote of confidence on the Speaker, Mr Peter Onwusanya for collaborating with the governor in promoting the well being of Deltans.

Moving the motion, which was unanimously adopted by all members of the House, Erijo said the development strides of Dr Uduaghan cut across all sectors of the state economy, including peace and security, infrastructural development and various empowerment programmes of the administration and were worthy of commendation.

Stating that the governor’s achievements had earned him both national and international recognitions and awards, he said the philosophy of the administration to finishing strong was also worthy of note.

Speaking with newsmen, Olorogun Taleb Tebite, described the vote of confidence as a testimony of the good works Governor Uduaghan was doing in the State.

Tebite said” Governor Uduaghan has touched the lives of all Deltans through his three point agenda”, adding that; “the socio-economic lives of Deltans have improved under his government.”

Also speaking, Chairman of the House Committee on Information, Mr Johnson Erijo, said the House could not act on petition without facts and could not commence impeachment process on a governor, who according to him, was doing well in the administration of the State.

While describing the petition as frivolous, Erijo said the petitioner might face the law for attempting to misinform the people of the State.

On his part, the Chief Legislative Adviser to the Governor, Chief Emmanuel Okoro, commended the House for jettisoning the petition, saying the House had spoken the minds of all Deltans.
