The Taraba State House of Assembly on Monday elected the Majority Leader, Joseph Albasu Alkinjoh, as its Speaker.
Alkinjoh is representing the people of Lau constituency in the Assembly.
Abdullahi Hamman Adama, from Bali II constituency, emerged the deputy Speaker, while Rtd Capt. Douglas Ndatse is the Majority Leader.
The change in the House’s leadership followed the resignation of the former Speaker, Peter Abel Diah and his deputy, Charles Maijankai, Sunday night.
Their resignation letters were read by the Clerk of the House, Orngu Mela, at a plenary Monday morning.
The former Speaker threw in the towel after a 2/3 majority of the 24-member House had concluded arrangements to impeach him today.
