Hon. Yusuf Ibrahim Zailani has been elected as the new Speaker of the Kaduna State Assembly.
Ibrahim became the new speaker barely an hour after the former speaker, Amniu Abduallahi Shagali, tendered his resignation letter.
Members of the house, numbering about 25, had earlier initiated moves to impeach the former speaker before he voluntarily resigned his position.
While the new speaker represents Igabi West constituency of the state, his deputy, Mukhtar Isa Hazo, is representing Bassawa State constituency of the state.
Both of them have been officially sworn in by the clerk of the house
