Taraba State House of Assembly has elected a new speaker, Joseph Kunini, following the resignation of the former Speaker, Abel Diah on Sunday evening.
The House on Monday also elected Haman Adama as the new Deputy Speaker, while Douglas Ndatse was elected as the Majority Leader.
The House also received an executive communication from Governor Darius Ishaku containing names of commissioner nominees for screening by the House.
Reading the communication, the new Speaker, fixed Tuesday for the commencement of screening of the 21 commissioner nominees.
Abel Diah resigned citing personal reasons on Sunday following weeks of speculation of a fight between Diah and Governor Ishaku which political watchers say is hinged on the politics of 2023.
