Ebonyi State Assembly Suspends Female Member For Posing As Photographer


The Ebonyi State House of Assembly has suspended Maria Ude Nwachi representing Afikpo North East constituency in the Assembly for alleged gross misconduct as she was accused of posing as a public photographer.

The motion for the suspension was moved by the leader of the House, Joseph Nwobasi, representing Ezza North East constituency and seconded by Franca Okpo representing Abakaliki North constituency.

According to the House, Ms. Nwachi has refused to heed earlier warnings by the Assembly to desist from posing as a photographer in the State as such action has brought disrespect and dishonesty to herself and the House at large.

Nwachi was suspended for 14 days pending the outcome of investigations on the allegations levelled against her by a special committee constituted by the House to investigate the allegations.

Ms. Nwachi who is a minority leader was elected on the platform of the Progressives People’s Alliance (PPA) but defected to PDP last year.

She was present at the plenary when she was suspended and this happens to be the second time she will be suspended by the House.
