SAHARANEWS – Hon Lawman Duruji on Thursday, resigned his position as Speaker of the Imo State House of Assembly.
This is coming just 48 hours after he assumed his new post as Speaker.
SaharaNews recalls that Duruji emerged Speaker following the resignation of the former Speaker, Hon Acho Ihim.
Confirming his exit to newsmen in Owerri, Duruji 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, he said, “I did that on personal reason. I was not forced. I have my reason and it is personal.”
SaharaNews , however, gathered that Duruji, who just won re-election for a second time, is seeking to emerge the substantive Speaker of the 9th Assembly. This must have prompted his decision to avoid legal issues.
