The member representing Bende North State constituency in Abia State House of Assembly Hon. Chijioke Chukwu has emerged Minority Leader Abia state house of assembly. Hon Chukwu was before now the Deputy Minority leader of Abia Assembly.
His ascendency follows the defection of the member representing Arochukwu state constituency, Hon. Mike Ukoha from APGA to APC. The move gave APC the majority membership of the minority caucus with 3 members while the APGA has two in the Assembly. Hon. Chukwu’s emergence came after Abia APC NEC meeting where it was resolved that he takes up the responsibility of the Minority Leader. The Speaker of Abia State House of Assembly, Rt Hon Chinedum Enyinnaya Orji has since been communicated through a letter on the change of guard in the Minority Caucus of the Assembly.
