ortom3 - JUST IN: Ortom reacts to Impeachment by lawmakers, reveals next line of action

Governor of Benue state, Samuel Ortom has reacted to his impeachment by 8 APC lawmakers today.

In a statement through his media aide, Terver Akase, Ortom maintains that he is still the governor of the state. The statement read;

“Ortom is still the Chief Executive of the State. You can’t just impeach a Governor in a flash. You have to go through all the legal and constitutional processes.

They have not been able to form a quorum, so it is not possible. Only eight people served the governor the notice, even at that, 2 other members who were part of the kangaroo sitting were on the side of the governor, so how can anybody call that an impeachment notice. It’s laughable and must be ignored completely.

And for the record, there is a court injunction restricting the impeached Speaker from parading himself as the Speaker of the House and that court injunction has not been vacated.

He has been suspended for 6 months, he doesn’t have any constitutional right to go back to that Assembly.

He has done nothing to vacate that injunction so whatever he did stands null and void.”

    APC has just demonstrated in the clearest way, most vividly, that its in full panic mode; reason has fled for fancy!

    I can’t believe its come to this already!
