…As Ochei Formally Resigns As Speaker
Peter Onwusanya has been elected as the new speaker of the delta state house of assembly.
His election followed the formal resignation of Victor Ochei as Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly on Tuesday.
In a letter addressed to the Deputy Speaker of the house, Ochei resigned as the Speaker of the state Legislature citing his personal resolve to pave way for a new leadership.
He said he hoped the new leadership would take the state and house to a higher level, having contributed his quota in that regard.
“I wish to thank all those, numerous and many who made my tour of duty a pleasant affair further. To you my esteemed colleagues, I remain grateful for your love and camaraderie we shared while it lasted”. He added.
Rt Hon Ochei was sworn in as the Speaker on June 6, 2011. Some news reports alleged that he was forced to resign as speaker by some political heavyweights in the state to avoid being booted out of office.
The new speaker, Peter Onwusanya, representing Oshimili South Constituency was until his election the Deputy Majority Whip of the Assembly.
