Ebonyi House suspends member for mobilizing youths against EEDC
Posted on: August 21, 2015, 08:57:06 PM

ABAKALIKI—EBONYI State House of Assembly, yesterday, suspended one of its members, Maria Nwachi, representing Afikpo North East state constituency for mobilizing youths of her area against Enugu Electricity Distribution Company, EEDC.

Recall that last Monday, the youths of Afikpo, who barricaded the entry and exit points into Afikpo town in protest against the epileptic power supply in the area, petitioned the state government over the black-out.

The protest, which took place simultaneously in Afikpo, Unwana, Ozizza and Amasiri covered two constituencies of the state. During the protest, public institutions including banks and markets were shut down as three vehicles belonging to EEDC were destroyed while staff of the company were sacked from the offices by the irate youths.

The House of Assembly described the action of Hon. Nwachi as unbecoming and contrary to the status of a lawmaker.
