Honourable Kennedy Njoku has resigned as Speaker of the Abia State House of Assembly, just 24 hours after he was elected into office. Njoku was elected on Thursday following the impeachment of Chief Martins Azubuike over alleged gross financial misconduct and autocratic leadership style. Njoku announced his resignation at the resumption of plenary at about 2.50pm on Friday and thanked members for the confidence they reposed in him by electing him as Speaker. He also promised to continue to provide effective representation to his Osisioma-Ngwa State Constituency. Mr. Chikwendu Kalu, who is representing Isialangwa South Constituency, has been elected the 10th Speaker of the sixth Abia Assembly.
