But a few hours later, Orji made his appearance and led the House’s plenary.

Nine members were present for the sitting, according to the newsmen.

A source close to the Speaker told DAILY POST that, “Orji remains the Speaker of the Abia State House of Assembly. Eleven members are with him. As you can see, nine of them attended the sitting, while two, who are currently out of the country, took permission.”

Along with Rt. Hon. Chikwendu Kalu, Hon. Chukwudi Apugo, Hon. Aaron Uzodike, Hon. Chukwu Chijioke, Hon. Thomas Nkoro, Hon. Mike Ukoha, Obinna Ichita, and Hon. Okey Igwe, Uchendu was suspended during the sitting.
