Enugu Deputy Gov. Onyebuchi Collapses at Impeachment Panel




Enugu State deputy governor, Sunday Onyebuchi, slumped yesterday while giving his testimony at an impeachment panel investigating allegations of “gross misconduct,” which the House of Assembly levelled against him.

During the proceedings, Onyebuchi reportedly complained of feeling dizzy and not being able to see properly. He then requested for a bottle of water, which was given to him.

Shortly after consuming the water, he slumped, ThisDay reports. Some of his aides and family members immediately took him to the hospital.

According to reports, Onyebuchi suffers from hypertension.

Following his collapse, Onyebuchi’s council requested that he be allowed to rest at home for one week.

However, the panel reportedly refused, insisting that the deputy governor must re-appear before the panel today so that proceedings could continue.

    Sullivan Chime (Enugu State governor) and his Chief of staff (Ifeoma Nwobodo) are the ones who are insulting the people of Enugu by impeaching a deputy governor who held forth for his governor when he was lying in a sick bed overseas for more than 4 months. The issue here is that the chief of staff (Ifeoma Nwobodo) is from the same town as the governor but she is married to a man from the same senatorial district as the deputy governor (follow me?) Now the governor wants to run for senate for his area and he wants his sister (the chief of staff) to also run for senate for the same area as the deputy governor. The deputy decided to run for the senate office as the chief of staff (girlfriend to the governor) and now they are calling for his head. Have you wondered why a deputy governor will be impeached for raising chicken. We all in Enugu know the truth and they should leave our peaceful, amiable, quiet deputy governor to finish his term.
    Sullivan Chime (the governor of Enugu) is telling others who have served for 8 years or more in politics to retire from politics, he too should retire and go take care of his health
