Delta new speaker, Daniel Mayuku promises adherence to House rules

The Speaker, Delta House of Assembly, Chief Monday Igbuya, was on Thursday, impeached by members of the house.

This came as the new speaker Daniel Mayuku promised to adhere to the rules of House, saying that though he had become the first among equals, he would accord every member his due respect.

Monday Igbuya removal at plenary presided by the Deputy Speaker, Mr Friday Asanebi, was predicated on allegations of incompetence, highhandedness and unacceptable leadership style by the lawmakers.

Igbuya, who represents Sapele constituency, was replaced by Mr Sheriff Oborevwori, of Okpe constituency, who was immediately elected by the members.

Motion for the impeachment of the speaker was unanimously adopted by all 22 members present at plenary after it was moved by Mr Johnson Erijo (Isoko South II) and seconded by Peter Onwusanya (Oshimili South).
