The Speaker, Abia State House of Assembly, Hon. Chinedum Orji has dissolved all the Standing Committees of the House with immediate effect
The Clerk to the Abia State House of Assembly, Mr. Johnpedro Irokansi in a statement he personally signed on Friday evening in Umuahia announced the committee dissolution.
Part of the terse statement read: “All the House Standing Committees are hereby dissolved forthwith.
“New Standing Committees shall be Constituted in due Course”
There is no clear reason given for the dissolution of the standing committees.
The Abia state House of Assembly has been mired in suspicion over an alleged attempt to sabotage the state governor.
The Speaker, who is the son of the immediate past governor of the state, and the lawmaker representing Abia Central in the Senate, Senator Theodore Orji is said to be nursing governorship ambition which has subtly upstaged the political feeling within the political circles in the state.
