Ebonyi State Female Lawmaker ''Lilian Igwe'' Suspended For Drunkenness


The Ebonyi State House of Assembly
yesterday June 5th suspended one of
its members, Lilian Igwe, for allegedly
getting drunk and acting
inappropriately.

The lawmaker was allegedly seen on
several occasions drinking herself into a
state of stupor and vomiting on herself.

“The House has been brought to ridicule
by the member representing Ivo State
Constituency, Lilian Igwe," Blasé Orji, the
member representing Afikpo South East
said while moving the motion, on
Tuesday, to suspend Igwe (PDP, Ivo),
"She does not only engage in excessive
alcoholic drinking, she also boards
commercial tricycles, popularly called
KEKE NAPEP, to the House, thereby not
carrying herself as an honourable
member. Mr Speaker, based on this
therefore, I move a motion that Hon
Lilian Igwe be suspended from the
House."

The motion was seconded by Christian
Ursulor, (PDP, Ezza South).
And when the House Speaker,
Chukwuma Nwazunku, put it to
question, members unanimously
adopted it.

Reacting to the development, Igwe, a
lawyer, who was absent from the
plenary, debunked the allegations. "Only
the members’ imaginations played out
the petty behaviour they accused me
of," she said.
