New Speaker Emerges For Abia State House of Assembly

Following the impeachment yesterday, of Barrister Martins Azubuike as the Speaker of the 6th Abia State House of Assembly,Members of the House have elected Rt. Honourable Kenedy Njoku as the new Speaker of the House.

Honourable Njoku,who represents Osisioma North,defeated Chikwendu Kanu–member representing Isialangwa South– 16 to 3 to become the Speaker.

Barrister Azubuike had earlier been impeached following a motion moved by Hon. Solomon Akpulonu–member representing Obingwa East Constituency. The charges against the former Speaker were; financial recklessness, abuse of office, insensitivity, and non inclusiveness of members.

In keeping with the PDP’s intra party zoning formula, Honourable Kenedy Njoku is also from Abia Central Senatorial District, thus the party’s zoning formula remains intact.
