There is an alleged fresh attempt to impeach the Anambra State governor, Mr Peter Obi, by members of the State House of Assembly.

Sunday Sun gathered that 19 out of 30 legislators are bent on removing the governor within the shortest possible period.
This is coming at a time there is an alleged rift between Obi and his deputy, Dame Virgy Etiaba even though the governorís Chief Press Secretary, Mike Udah, said the rift has since been taken care of.

Reacting to the impeachment threat, Udah said he was reliably informed that 19 members of the house were seen at the Enugu airport boarding an Abuja-bound aircraft to allegedly meet with their political mentor (name withheld) to hatch the impeachment move.
"Some people have also expressed worry over that trip even to my hearing. They are members of the public who say that kind of trip may have ulterior motive.

"It is believed that they were going to meet with their political mentor and other people who are not comfortable with the continued stay of Governor Obi on the seat of governance," Udah said.
