The newly elected Imo State House of Assembly Speaker, Hon. Lawman Duruji, on Thursday, resigned 48 hours after assuming office.
Hon. Duruji had assumed office following the resignation of the former Speaker, Acho Ihim, and garnering 14 votes to beat his only rival, Chinedu Ofor (Onuimo), who got 11 votes.
Duruji confirmed the development to The Punch in Owerri on Thursday.
He said, “It is true. I have just resigned as the Speaker of the Imo State House of Assembly.
“I have tendered my resignation letter to the Clerk of the House, Chris Duru.
“I resigned on Thursday.”
When asked what prompted his sudden resignation, Duruji said, “I did that on personal reason. I was not forced. I have my reason and it is personal.”
