ONITSHA—The Anambra State House of Assembly has summoned Special Adviser to Governor Willie Obiano on Political Affairs, Mr Chinedu Obidigwe, for allegedly usurping the functions of Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs.

He is to appear before the lawmakers, Tuesday, to answer the allegations levelled against him. Emenaka, a ranking member and Chairman, House Committee on Finance and Appropriation, said the House was particularly disturbed by the alleged abuse of siren and long convoy the aide used to harass and intimidate the people of Anambra.
He said Obidigwe was being summoned to explain his functions as the Special Adviser to the Governor on Political Matters so that they would know where his job started and where it ended. Also speaking on the motion for urgent public importance, a member representing Onitsha North 1 constituency, Mr Chugbo Enwezor, supported the motion on the ground that the governor’s aide was flagrantly abusing the position given to him.
