In a stunning turn of events, former executive chairman of Aba South Local Government Area, Hon Emmanuel Emeruwa, has emerged as the Speaker of the 8th Abia State House of Assembly. This comes after an intense session where lawmakers convened to select a new leader.
Hon Emmanuel Emeruwa, who served as the Local Government Chairman from 2016 to 2018, has now been elected as the 8th Speaker of the Abia State House of Assembly. His victory marks a significant milestone in his political career and demonstrates his strong support among his colleagues.
Notably, Emeruwa made headlines earlier this year when he defected from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to the Labour Party after an unsuccessful bid in the primaries. Undeterred by this setback, he rallied his supporters and successfully secured victory in the 2023 House of Assembly election for the Aba Central State Constituency.
The nomination for the esteemed position of Speaker was made by Hon Ucheonye Stephen, the representative of Aba Central State Constituency. This nomination showcased the unity and support within the assembly for Hon Emmanuel Emeruwa’s leadership.
With his extensive experience in local governance and now as the newly elected Speaker, Hon Emmanuel Emeruwa is poised to bring fresh perspectives and effective leadership to the Abia State House of Assembly. As he assumes his new role, expectations are high for his transformative contributions and the positive impact he will make on the legislative landscape of Abia State.
