Members of the Enugu State House of Assembly, Monday, re-elected the former Speaker, Hon. Edward Uchenna Ubosi, to pilot the affairs of the 7th Assembly which was inaugurated today, Monday, June 10, 2019.

Ubosi is the member representing Enugu East Urban Constituency. He is serving his third term in the House, having been first elected to the Assembly in 2011.

First timer to the House, Hon. Uche Ugwu, Udi North Constituency, was elected the Deputy Speaker to replace Dons Uzogbado, from Oji River Constituency.

The former Leader of the Assembly, Hon. Melitus Ikechukwu Ezeugwu, representing Udenu Constituency, was also re-elected into his position.

Member representing Enugu South Rural, Hon. Mary Onyinye, also retained her position as the Deputy Leader of the House.

New member representing Awgu North Constituency, Hon. Jane Eneh, was elected Chief Whip, while the Deputy Chief Whip, Hon. Ethel Oyibo Ugwuanyi, retained her position.

Leader of the House, Hon. Ezeugwu, nominated Speaker Ubosi to be re-elected while the member representing Nkanu West seconded.

Ezeugwu said that he had known Ubosi for past eight years, saying that he was a good leader and deserved to be reelected.

“I know Ubosi too well for the past eight years,” he said, pointing out that because of leadership qualities, he was elected in absentia as the Deputy Chairman of Nigeria Speakers Conference.

Seconding Ezeugwu, Aniagu described Ubosi as a lady whom the man remarrying would not begin to worry about her character. “I do second him,” he said.

Expressing joy over his re-election, Ubosi said that the day was not a speech-making day but just to thank God for everything.

He said that the first time he was made Speaker he thought it was because of stature as a tall man but now he knew that it was God that just made him leader.

“Today we have gathered here to thank God. I don’t have a written speech. We are here just to thank God,” he said and thanked Gov. Ugwuanyi for purposeful leadership in the state.

Ubosi also thanked God making it possible for him and his colleagues to be elected and promised that the 7th Assembly would be better than the 6th Assembly.

He equally pointed out that is peaceful because Gov. Ugwuanyi first handed over to God while they at the Assembly reciprocated by dedicating every first week of the months to prayers which has paid off as the Assembly had been very peaceful.

The inauguration was witnessed by traditional rulers, former commissioners, former assembly members and special advisers.
