The House of Assembly on Tuesday removed the ANSIEC chief following his alleged indictment by an Audit Panel. The lawmakers, during its sitting on Tuesday, unanimously voted for Eze’s removal, describing him as incompetent.
But Eze said his removal did not follow due process as he was not consulted by the lawmakers and declared his removal as null and void.
Governor Peter Obi has approved the appointment of Sylvester Okonkwo as the new Acting Chairman of the commission.
Obi had said the local government elections would be conducted in November.
