Disclosing the development in a letter addressed and read by the Speaker, Chinedum Enyinnaya Orji, on Tuesday, during the house’s plenary session, Munachim Alozie had openly thanked the leadership of the State House of Assembly for their support and cooperation while he held sway as the Chief Whip of the house.

The Abia lawmaker hinted that his actions were necessitated by his defection to another political party after the concluded PDP primaries held across the state. He had also further urged his colleagues to join hands irrespective of party affiliations so they can take Abia to greater heights.

Sequel to the resignation of the member representing Ugwunagbo Constituency at the Abia State House of Assembly, the Speaker, Chinedum Enyinnaya Orji, announced Thomas Nkoro as the new Majority Chief Whip of the house.

He made this known during the Assembly’s plenary session on Wednesday in Umuahia, the state capital.

Orji hinted that the emergence of Nkoro to succeed Munachim Alozie followed due consultation with members and leadership of the State House of Assembly.

In another news report, the Anambra State House of Assembly has revealed that it had passed 40 bills into law and over 100 resolutions in the last three years.

The Speaker of the House, Mr. Uche Okafor made the disclosure in a statement in Awka on Sunday to mark the third anniversary of the inauguration of the state’s seventh Assembly.
