Monday Igbuya, speaker of the Delta state house of assembly, has been removed over allegations of “financial misappropriation and highhandedness.”
Twenty-two of the 29 members of the house endorsed his removal.
Igbuya has been replaced by Sheriff Oborevwori, member representing Okpe constituency.
The lawmakers also suspended Igbuya for three months, while the former majority leader of the house who has now been replaced by Johnson Erijo was handed an indefinite suspension.
Apart from the principal officers who were replaced, the assembly recorded full attendance.
After the assembly’s session, the new speaker and other members proceeded to government house to meet with Ifeanyi Okowa, the state governor.
A representative of Sapele constituency for a third time, Igbuya emerged the speaker of the sixth state assembly on June 8, 2015.
Until his emergence, he was the majority leader of the assembly.
Igbuya was elected alongside Friday Osanebi, the former deputy chief whip, representing Ndokwa east constituency, as deputy speaker.
In his acceptance speech as speaker, Igbuya said his experience over the years would be handy in leading the house.
