There are strong indications that the Speaker of the Kogi State House of Assembly, Umar Ahmed Imam is set to tender his resignation letter today, Thursday.

This is to escape impeachment by some aggrieved lawmakers. His decision to resign his position as Speaker followed the call for an emergency sitting owing to the attack on the House by suspected thugs numbering about 100.

The Speaker on Tuesday evening had earlier issued a statement through the clerk of the House Mr Tseja, Sheidu, that “The Speaker of Kogi State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Umar Ahmed Imam, by the powers conferred on him under Rule 4(2) of the Standing Rules of the House, has directed that the Sitting of the House earlier disrupted today, Tuesday, the 1st day of August 2017 be now adjourned sine die pending improvement in situation in the House.

“A date will be announced for the House to reconvene. Any inconveniences caused by this announcement is highly regretted please. Thank you.”

Meanwhile, Ahmed Imam was said to have been forced to invalidate his earlier stand adjourning the house indefinitely following speculations that some lawmakers have been financially induced to impeach him.

It was alleged that some members loyal to the camp of the executive collected the sum of N5million each to effect the impeachment process. But when DAILY POST contacted one of the lawmakers who doesn’t want his name in print, he debunked the allegation.

However, it was gathered from a reliable source that about eight signatures have been collated to impeach the Speaker if he fails to resign, while others who refused were under serious threat to align with the latest development.

Although, there might not be much shakeup in the arrangement of the house Principal officers when the Speaker Umar Ahmed Imam resigns, a reporter gathered from a reliable source that the current Majority Leader representing Kabba Bunnu State Constituency, Prince Mathew Kolawole is likely favoured to succeed him as Speaker of the sixth Assembly.
