The Imo State House of Assembly has suspended  all the Chairmen in the  27 Local Government Areas of the State.

The Lawmakers unanimously took the decision at the Thursday plenary.

Chika Madumere (Nkwerre) moved the motion for the immediate suspension of the chairmen and the motion was unanimously endorsed. 

Madumere attributed his decision to move the motion to the contempt shown by the chairmen to the legislature by failing to appear before the house to give account on the fiscal states of the LGA's.

The lawmaker said  the chairmen's refusal to honour the legislature's invitation should be seen as a collective and deliberate decision to undermine the legislative arm of the state.
