Sapele LG boss suspended, House leader impeached

By Austin Ogwuda
Asaba — THE Chairman of Sapele local government council, Mr. Godwin Atose, has been suspended by the councill-ors for three months, while Leader of the House, Mrs. Anirah, was impeached.

The councillors, in a motion moved by Mr. Kingsley Sajere  and seconded by Mr. Efe Mafuro, removed the former leader of the House and suspended the chairman of the council, with over two-third majority of members voting.

Addressing newsmen, the aggrieved councillors, who stormed some media houses in Asaba, said “the chairman was suspended for failure to render statements of income and expenditure to the legislative arm since the inception of his administra-tion”.

Following the develop-ment, the councillors told newsmen that “they have set up a committee to investigate the activities of the chairman since inception.

“All banks and financial institutions have accordingly been restrained from honouring any cheques or instruments from the council till futher notice.”
