The Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly, Rt Hon (Engr.) Victor Ochei has resigned as the Speaker of the state Legislature, citing his personal resolve to pave way for a new leadership of the house as his reason.
In a letter addressed to the Deputy Speaker of the house, Rt Hon (Barr.) Basil Ganagana, the erstwhile Speaker, stated that he hoped the new leadership will take the state and house to a higher level, having contributed his quota in that regard.
According to him, “I wish to thank all those, numerous and many who made my tour of duty a pleasant affair further. To you my esteemed colleagues, I remain grateful for your love and camaraderie we shared while it lasted”.
He prayed that God in His infinite wisdom avails his successor and indeed the house of all human sagacity in the task of accentuating the core ideals of the Legislature as a partner in governance, for a better society.
