The speaker of the Imo State House of Assembly, Hon. Kennedy Ibeh representing the Obowo State constituency has resigned from his position.

A new speaker Hon. Emeka Nduka representing the Ehime Mbano State constituency has been elected to replace the former speaker by members of the state assembly.

The election of a new speaker is to avoid a vacuum in the leadership of the house.

He was elected on Monday at a closed-door special sitting presided over by the Deputy Speaker, Mr Amarachi Iwuanyanwu (APC-Nwangele) who called for nominations after reading Ibe’s letter of resignation.

The Majority Leader, Mr Kanayo Onyemaechi (APC-Owerri West) nominated Nduka, a nomination seconded by Dr Uju Onwudiwe (APC-Njaba).
