  • Members of the House say that Igwe does not conduct herself in a honourable manner.

Lilian Igwe, a member of the Ebonyi State House of Assembly was on Tuesday suspended by the House, her crime being that she has been seen on several occasions drinking herself to stupor and vomiting on herself.

The motion to suspend Igwe was moved by Blasé Orji, representing Afikpo South East, and was seconded by Christian Ursulor of the PDP representing Ezza South.

“The House has been brought to ridicule by the member representing Ivo State Constituency, Lilian Igwe,” Orji said.

“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 lawmaker added.

Members of the house unanimously supported the motion when put to question by the Speaker, Chukwuma Nwazunku.

While reacting to the suspension, Igwe, who was absent from the plenary, debunked the allegations. “Only the members’ imaginations played out the petty behaviour they accused me of,” she said.

  1. This shows d kind of legislators we have in Nigeria especially Ebonyi state and whose primary duty is supposed to make laws to protect individual rights instead they abridge d right of ordinary citizens, when has drunkenness and entering keke napep breached any provision of d constitution when her constituency elected as their representative in spite of her drunken way of life, what abt other male legislators and senators parting wit a fortune just 2 hv fun wit teenage secondary school gals and some engaging in rituals out of their desperate bid to win election by all means, i advise her to refrain from her drunken way of life if the allegation abt her drinking habit is true and go 2 court 2 challange her suspension.God bless Ebonyi state and d Federal republic of Nigeria.

  2. Charity start 4rm home,what a shame for a woman 4 dat matter.i suggest she is caused 4rm her family or let her go to church to seek help bcus is not ordinary.
