Embattled Kogi State House of Assembly Speaker, Hon. Momoh Jimoh has resigned.
However, Hon. Umar Ahmed Imam immediately replaced him as Speaker of the State House of Assembly.
Jimoh’s resignation letter was read on the floor of the House by the Deputy Speaker Hon. Ali Akuh, who said the Speaker’s decision is in the best interest of the state.
It will be recalled that the crisis in the House has been on since February 2016, consequently splitting the Assembly into two factions.
