The political drama playing out in Abia State, South-East Nigeria, has taken another twist.

Minutes ago, Bishop Kennedy Njoku, who was yesterday elected Speaker of the 6th Abia State House of Assembly, announced his resignation “on personal grounds”.

Hon. Njoku was ushered into the hallowed chambers and after the opening formalities, he announced his resignation.

A new Speaker promptly emerged in the person of Chikwendu Kalu, representing Isiala Ngwa South. The sole nominee for the position, Hon. Kalu was elected by voice vote. He has been sworn in by the Clerk of the Assembly.
