The Speaker of the Kogi State House of Assembly, Umar Imam, has resigned.
He reportedly resigned on Tuesday night to avoid being impeached during Wednesday’s plenary session.
When contacted, the Chief Press Secretary to the speaker, Ali Yakubu, who neither denied nor confirmed the development, said there was a proclamation on Tuesday evening convening the assembly for a special sitting on Wednesday.
He said, “Let’s wait for official confirmation from the house today.”
The House was enmeshed in serious fracas on Tuesday when hoodlums invaded the house during a plenary session and beat up a member, Elder Friday Sani.
