Mr. Emeka Nduka, who represents Ehime Mbano in the Imo State House of Assembly, is now the speaker.
This followed the resignation of Mr. Kennedy Ibeh, the former speaker and member for the Obowo constituency.
Mr. Nduka was elected in a special session of the house after the deputy speaker, Mr. Amara Iwuanyanwu, read the former Speaker’s letter of resignation.
Mr Ibe stated that his decision to resign comes after wide consultation with family and political associates, as well as in the best interest of the All Progressives Congress (APC) party in the State.
