Imo State has impeached their deputy Gov for allegedly taking bribe

Imo State Deputy Governor Jude Agbaso was today impeached by the State House of Assembly. 25 out of 26 state legislators voted in favour of Mr Agbaso's impeachment.

The deputy governor was impeached for allegedly demanding and taking N417million bribe from a Lebanese Construction company, J-PROS Limited, engaged in the on-going road construction works in Imo State.

Agbaso denies he collected bribe. Meanwhile, Chief of Staff to Governor Rochas Okorocha, Eze Madumere, has replaced him as Deputy Governor of the state.

its just so sad that most of the people getting into government are doing so for selfish purposes. stealing public fund day in day out is what we read and hear. this money, they will still die and leave. i really wonder how this country is gonna ever move forward. really sad

BONARIO NNAGS said...

His political naivety was quite obvious.
His brother Martins Agbaso had a deal with Rochas for him to assume responsibility after Rochas first tenure.
but inexperience made him throw away d opportunity.
He can now go and make do with the bottle of Whisky,which he claimed he only collected.

U need to get ur shit right before u write any crap alright, Nathan is his Nephew and not his son, so also Martin junior. Agbaso family has been a house hold name even before u were privileged to touch a keyboard, and Jude been the deputy. Marwa former. Governor of Lagos is married to Jude' s elder sister, Chief Martin' s a one time special adviser to Obj on economical matters, Chain of restaurant all over Nigeria Jevnik is owned by de elder sister since few years back. So de Family has been on a platter of gold OK...FYI Nathan is an american citizen if u most know , so he has de right to live anywhere in de world, its called a blue passport u fkn moron , so ur delusional idea of him been deported pls scratch dat. U guys follow de news sheepishly, y didn't Rocha's properly investigate how de bribe was given , and whose account it was paid into..I don't live in Nigeria but I believe we have advanced ways of doing dat electronically in respect to banking system. So keep hating cos neither Rocha's or de Agbaso give a shit but u....

Anonymous said...

So what happened to the Lebanese contractor who openly admitted giving the bribe? Has he been handed over to EFCC and the contract revoked? Rochas, like most other politicians is a nitwit. The clowns in the house never for once told us where the money was lodged and the efforts they've made to trace the source of the money and have it recovered to the benefit of IMO people. This ain't democracy

Sharap der idiot, so u open ur gutter mouth to yab wot u dnt know. Nathan and Martin are Martin Agbaso 's sons and those kids have been studying abroad all der life. Martin has neva been a poor man neither is hz brother Jude. The Agbasos are very wealthy and state fund dt he gt in less than two years is now wot u tink they are spending. There sister too is the owner of JEVINIK RESTAURANT" and shes had it running in almost six states eva since. Martin brought out hz younger brother to be Deputy as a deal he had wit Rochas but its unfortunate Rochas hz jus used dz young man as a scape goat and make him look as d bad guy so that HE can go fr presidency in 2015. Al na politics but it wil surely dawn on Rochas soon. D WAR HZ STARTED!!!

I'm afraid it's not wat it seems like, he fell out of favour so rochas took him out, it's very easy for a governor to do dat knowing dey r all corrupt anyway...

How come the said contractor who claimed to have given bribe was given a pat on the back and is being lodged at the gov's hotel(lampooned on orlu road).how come the relevant authorities were not invited to investigate the matter?why would a contractor give 46% of hhis contract sum to someone who he said promised him more work when the one at hand was given to you directly by the gov.how come the com of finance and the accountant general who paid the contractor 1.3billion and even overpaid him 200million,nobody is saying anything about them!how come he is only contractor that got paid 100% even before he started the job a year ago while others till date have only been paid 35%.thats why all the roads have been abandoned,pls before we start calling anybody names let us try and answer these questions!Rochas's is a bigger criminal and will get his own day in court!

There is more to the gist o...he originally took bribe from the firm of which a huge part of d money ws gotten from an xchange firm thru d construction firm bt durin investigation he insisted he dint cos d $ cudnt b traced bt his cuz is a martins is a treat to rochas cos d cuz harbours gov. Ambitions n so this bribe issue ws enuf to b used against him so as to throw him out of rochas cabinet cos he ws beginning to b seen as a traitor dat cud possibly aid his cuz in d next gubernatorial race....too bad 4him cos Rochas has d state house members as loyalist to him...imagine 26 out of 27members voted 4 his impeachment....naija politics smh....prebendal politics stil very eminent in this country

Impeaching the deputy governor may not be the problem facing imo state now, firstly the governor said his deputy involve himself in a scandal, ok let me ask you people that are talking what they don't know about, does it mean that he has been doing this or did he just decided to do this, ok let assume this is the first time he is doing this, Owelle gave a directive that no contractor should be pay until he/she finish the job given to him while then did he ask the deputy governor who is the commissioner of works to pay the J-Pbross company, well owelle has a selfish interest beside Obasanjo told us before now that the man is like a woman, but please for his own interest to manover his son-in-law into being the deputy governor he is joking we the Owerri Zone people are waiting for him, the battle has just began useless man, deceiver, an anti-christ leader, a ritualistic of the highest order..............We shall see at the top????????????????????????????????????????
