Lawmakers at the Imo State House of Assembly, Monday afternoon, sacked their Speaker, Kennedy Ibe. The lawmakers immediately elected Emeka Nduka as their new Speaker.
Nduka, who represents Ehime Mbano constituency in the state, was immediately sworn in by the Clerk of the Assembly, Chinelo Emeghara, and was congratulated by the deputy Speaker, Amara Iwuanyanwu, the majority leader, Kanayo Onyemaechi of Owerri West, and ranking lawmaker, Ngozi Obiefule of Isu constituency.
Ibe, who represents Obowo state constituency, was elected as Speaker in November 2021, after Paul Emezim was sacked as the Speaker.
Ibe was on suspension when he was elected as the number one man of the legislature.
The member representing Ihitte Uboma state constituency, Onyemaechi Njoku, told our correspondent in a telephone conversation that the lawmakers would assist the new Speaker to stabilise the Assembly.
