Rivers Speaker impeached

The Speaker of the Rivers State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Ikunyi Ibani has stepped aside and been replaced by the member representing Okrika State Constituency, Hon. Daboturidinma Adams.

Reports say that Ibani resigned from his position for undisclosed reasons, while an informed source said that he was impeached by colleagues Friday evening.

Ibani, who represents Andoni Constituency in the House, was said to have resigned a few minutes after presiding over the passage of the 2016 Budget of N307 billion into law.

His election was recently annulled by the Rivers State Election Tribunal sitting in Abuja, but he has appealed the judgement.
