Nasarawa Assembly Gets New Speaker, Deputy

Members of the Nasarawa State House of Assembly today unanimously elected, Danladi Jatau, representing Kokona West Constituency as Speaker of the House.

Similarly, the position of the Deputy Speaker went to Mohammed Oyanki, member representing Doma North Constituency.

The newly occupied positions followed Tuesday’s sack of the former Speaker, Ibrahim Abdullahi at the Appeal Court sitting in Abuja.

Newsmen report that the new Speaker, Jatua, a member of the All Progressives Congress, collaborated with Oyanki, who is a member of the Peoples Democratic Party to emerge as leader of the assembly in order to maintain its existing peace.
