Imolites have been thrown into confusion following the reported resignation of the speaker of their House of Assembly, Kennedy Ibeh from his position.
The reason for the reported resignation of the ex-speaker isn’t known yet but a photo of the new speaker, Emeka Nduka, representing Ehime Mbano, state constituency, surfaced on Monday in Owerri, alongside the Deputy Speaker of the House, Chyna Iwuayanwu, majority leader, Kanayo Onyemaechi and the member representing Isu state Constituency, Ngozi Obiefule.
Imo state Assembly Speaker; Kennedy Ibeh impeached… Emeka Nduka elected as new speaker.
Under 2yrs of Gov. Hope Uzodinma’s administration, Imo State House of Assembly has produced 4 speakers.
Chiji Collins representing Isiala Mbano was speaker when The supreme Court declared Hope Uzodinma Governor of Imo state. After some months, Chiji was impeached and Paul Emeziem representing Onuimo LGA became speaker. Months ago, Paul Emeziem was Impeached and Kennedy Ibeh representing Obowo state constituency was elected speaker of Imo state house of assembly.
There are unconfirmed reports that in few months time, the member representing Ihitte Uboma state constituency in the Assembly maybe taking over from Speaker Nduka.
