Taraba Speaker Resigns, ex Speaker Re-elected

The speaker of the Taraba State House of Assembly, Dr. Mark Bakko Usani has resigned and the House unanimously elected former speaker, Hon Abel Peter Diah as the new speaker.

Dr Bakko during a plenary sitting yesterday in Jalingo said his resignation was personal.

He thanked members of the state House of Assembly for the cooperation they have showed during his regime as the speaker of the House.

Dr Mark after vacating his seat as the speaker of the House nominated Hon. Abel Peter Diah of PDP Mbamnga constituency, and was seconded by Kizito Bonzena, PDP Zing constituency, respectively.

Diah in his acceptance speech expressed gratitude to the members for finding him worthy to occupy the position for the second time, stressing that he will run an open, transparent and accountable Assembly that would benefit all Tarabans. LEADERSHIP recalls that the court of appeal sitting in Yola earlier nullified the electoral victory of  Mr. Abel Peter Diah and ordered for a fresh supplementary  election that later brought him back as a member.
