The Speaker of the Rivers State House of Assembly, Ikunyi Awaji-Ibani has resigned his position as Speaker.
Mr. Ibani dropped the shocker at few minutes to 7pm on Friday, immediately after passing the N307 billion 2016 budget as presented by the state Governor, Nyesom Wike.
The Speaker did not give any reason but said “in life, there is time for everything but a member representing okrika constituency Adama Dabatorudima is now the new speaker.
It will be recalled that the election petition tribunal had nullified the election of Mr. Ibani and ordered for fresh election. The matter is still pending before the Court of Appeal.
