The Imo State House of Assembly Speaker, Lawman Duruji, has resigned.
Duruji resigned on Thursday just 48 hours after he assumed office following the resignation of the former Speaker, Acho Ihim.
Duruji had, on Tuesday, emerged the new Speaker after garnering 14 votes to beat his only rival, Chinedu Ofor (Onuimo), who got 11 votes.
When asked what prompted his sudden resignation, Duruji said, “I did that on personal reason.”
It may be recalled that Duruji has been re-elected to the Imo State House of Assembly, and he is believed to want to run for the post of Speaker when the Assembly is sworn in.
