Special Adviser to President Goodluck Jonathan on Political Matters, Alhaji Ahmed Gulak, yesterday in Abuja asked the Imo State House of Assembly to impeachment Governor Rochas Okorocha over the governor’s face-off with 27 sacked local government chairmen.
Gulak made the call when he received the 27 sacked council bosses led by the state chairman of Association of Local Government of Nigeria (ALGON), Mrs. Ruby Emele.
The embattled LG bosses submitted a protest letter to President Jonathan through Gulak, who assured that the Peoples Democratic Party (PP)-led government, would opt for a ‘political solution’ to the problem.
“What Okorocha has done is illegal and unconstitutional and where democracy thrives, these are acts that are impeachable. It is just unfortunate that the members of the Imo State House of Assembly have not taken up that matter. But these acts are impeachable because the offences are impeachable. In this vein, the courts have given their verdict that you should be reinstated. But the court verdict would be empty if you are not allowed to operate as chairmen of your local governments.
