Speaker of the Kogi State House of Assembly, Momoh Jimoh Lawal has tendered his resignation. Hon. Umar Imam has been appointed as his replacement.
Jimoh’s resignation comes after a long leadership tussle that started in February this year.
The crisis broke the House into two factions – the Momoh Jimoh Lawal and the Umar Ahmed Imam. Trouble started after some members of the house, about five of them, impeached Mr Jimoh in February.
