He announced his resignation at the resumption of plenary at about 2.50 p.m. today, thanked members for the confidence they reposed in him by electing him as Speaker.
The Clerk of the House, Mr John-Pedro Irokansi, immediately called for an election to be conducted to fill the vacuum created by Njoku’s resignation. Mr Chikwendu Kalu, representing Isialangwa South Constituency was elected by consensus
With his election, Kalu, an Aba-based legal practitioner, emerged the tenth Speaker of the sixth Abia Assembly.
