The Deputy Speaker of the Imo State House of Assembly, Okey Onyekanma, has resigned his position.

Onyekanma announced his resignation in a letter read by the Speaker of the House, Chiji Collins, during plenary on Tuesday at the legislative chamber of the Assembly Complex in Owerri, the state capital.

He informed his colleagues that he has also resigned as the Chairman of the House Committee on Rules and Business.

In the letter, Onyekanma explained that he took the decision to resign due to the zoning arrangement in the state.

According to him, the plan gives the seat of the deputy speaker to a lawmaker from the same zone with the governor and considering the new leadership in the state, he is not from the same zone with the state governor, Senator Hope Uzodinma.
