He told journalists in Port Harcourt that 26 members of the House voted during plenary at the Rivers State Government House on Monday.

“I must thank my colleagues, 26 Assembly members who have just elected me as the new speaker of the 10th Rivers State House of Assembly,” he said.

“My commitment to Rivers people is that I will be fair, I will be just to all and sundry, and I will ensure that the rule of law takes its course.

“I will not betray my colleagues, I will not betray Rivers people, and I will not betray my constituents.

“I will also ensure that the independence of the Rivers House of Assembly is adhered to with mutual respect to the judiciary and the executive arms of government.”
