Imo House of Assembly recess, ill-timed, smacks of incompetence – PDP’s Opuruzor

Collins Opuruzor, a social activist, has mocked the Paul Emeziem-led Imo State House of Assembly for taking an eight-week recess, claiming that the Assembly has accomplished nothing during its time in session.

After the terrible periods of COVID-19, EndSARS protest, and the recent PASSAN strike, Opuruzor stated the Assembly leadership was incompetent and rubber-stamped because it failed to afford itself more time to perform more legislative work.

The activist who is the current Director-General of New Media in Imo State PDP also further accused the 9th Assembly of being willing tools in the hands of the executive arm.

He said, “It’s unfortunate that the current Imo state House of Assembly, is only bent on carrying out the instructions of the governor.

“Tell me what they have achieved within this period of Covid-19 lockdown, EndSARS protest and PASSAN strike? Absolutely nothing.

“If they were competent enough, they would have known that they needed more time to cover the trying periods which frustrated the legislative process.

“The leadership of the 9th has nothing to offer. That’s why they are acting the governor’s script.

“The speaker and members of his cabal are only bent on witch-hunting the minority members and denying them of their legislative rights.

“The only thing speaker Paul Emeziem achieved since his emergence, was demotion and suspension of members. Let’s see where this leads them to.”

The Speaker, Paul Emeziem, had on Tuesday, announced the commencement of 8 weeks recess for the Assembly.

The announcement was made during plenary.
