A former member of the Imo State House of Assembly, Greg Owuammanam has canvassed the lifting of the suspension slammed on six members of the House.
Owuammanam made the call at the weekend while speaking with newsmen in Owerri, the state capital.
The erstwhile lawmaker who said he was not yet privy to the actual reasons for their suspension, stated that the ‘unparliamentary conduct’ slammed on them by the House is indicative of the fact that they committed acts unbecoming of their status.
He however appealed to the leadership of the House to forgive them.
The six suspended members of the House are Uche Ogbuagu (Ikeduru); Kennedy Ibeh (Obowo); Anyadike Nwosu (Ezinihitte Mbaise); Philip Ejiogu (Owerri North); Dominic Ezerioha (Oru West) and ONyemaechi Michael Njoku (Ihitte-Uboma).
Owuammanam who said the suspended member for Ihitte-Uboma State Constituency, Michael Njoku was doing well, disclosed that he has had to counsel him to be loyal to the party and the leadership of the House.
He hailed the leadership style of the state governor, Senator Hope Uzodinma who he said has used the limited resources available to uplift the state.
He observed that COVID-19 dealt a dangerous blow to the world economy and Imo state’s economy inclusive.
Owuammanam also commended the judgement of Appeal Court, declaring Frank Ibezim as the authentic senator representing Imo North Senatorial District.
Owuammanam noted that the senator has started delivering on his campaign promises by establishing constituency offices in the six local government areas of the zone.
He therefore urged the senator to be evenhanded in sharing projects he may attract not minding the number of votes he got from the local government areas.
The politician debunked the claims that the recent All Progressives Congress ward congress was mired in skirmishes.
He explained that his Ihitte Uboma Local Government Area had a peaceful congress in line with the directive of the governor who is the leader of the party.
According to him, party members voted according to their conscience, pointing out that consensus was allowed in areas where there were consensus candidates.
