Speaker of Taraba State of Assembly, Josiah Sabo Kente resigns

The Speaker of the Taraba State of Assembly, Hon. Josiah Sabo Kente, has resigned.

In a letter addressed to the Clerk of the House, Kente said his resignation was personal.
But checks revealed that the Kente who was perceived to be loyal to the former acting Governor of the state, Garba Umar, wants to avoid any confrontation with the new acting Governor, Alhaji Sani Danladi.

Kente, who emerged as the Speaker of the House last year November following the death of his predecessor, Hon Haruna Tsokwa, thanked the members of the House for the opportunity given him to serve as Speaker of the seventh assembly for the past one year just as he pledged to continue to be loyal and contribute his best to the well-being of the assembly.
“I write to tender my resignation as the Speaker of the Taraba State House of Assembly, Jalingo from today, the 24th day of November, 2014. My resignation is personal. I want to seek this opportunity to thank members of the seventh assembly for giving me the opportunity to serve as Hon. Speaker for the past one year. I pledge to remain loyal and would always contribute my best to the well-being of the Hon House,” he stated.
