The Speaker, Kogi State House of Assembly, Hon. Momoh Lawal, has resigned his appointment.
His resignation letter was read on the floor of the House on Tuesday.
In his stead, Hon. Imam, who was hitherto suspended by five members of the House has been picked as Speaker.
Imam is of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Kogi House of Assembly has been rocked by crisis since Governor Yahaya Bello used a minority number in the assembly to foist the Speaker on the House.
At one point, the House of Representatives adopted a motion to take over the legislative functions of the House.
