ABAKALIKI—EBONYI State House of Assembly, yesterday extended the suspension of the member representing Afikpo North East constituency in the Assembly, Hon. Maria Ude Nwachi  to six months. Presenting report of the committee, the chairman and member representing Ikwo South constituency, Hon. Chike Ogiji said: “In all the sittings of the committee, Hon. Mrs Maria Ude Nwachi was invited and she honoured the committee’s invitation and conducted herself with decorum. She admitted to have displayed some ethical attitudes and conducts before the committee.Hon. Mrs. Maria Ude Nwachi as part of our observations, seems to regret her act of misconduct  and other unethical behaviours that degrades the reputation and integrity of this House. Hon. Mrs. Maria Ude Nwachi runs an illegal lottery scheme calledIgboist, thereby creating an environment with which she engages in fraudulent acts.”


Although the forum(igboist) is not political and“unintended to defraud people, the illegality and criminal nature of“the scheme destroyed the public confidence in the parliament, thus“making the public to generally accuse the House of corruption,“inefficiency and incompetence.“““She also runs an image promotion with her  face book account which“she displays excellent performance of our dear Governor, His“Excellency Engr. Dr. David Nweze Umahi.“
