Hon. Abok Ayuba, a 33-year-old 500-level student of Law at the University of Jos, has been elected Speaker of Plateau 9th Assembly.
Ayuba who represents Jos East constituency, was unanimously elected by members without subjecting it through electoral process.
His election followed a nomination by the member representing Jos North-North constituency, Hon. Ibrahim Baba-Hassan, and was seconded by member representing Jos North-West constituency, Hon. Esther Simi Dusu.
In a related development, the Assembly re-elected the immediate past deputy, Hon. Salleh Yipmong, representing Dengi constituency as its Deputy Speaker.
The newly-elected Speaker in his inaugural speech thanked his colleagues for the confidence reposed on him and promised not to fail them.
Ayuba assured fellow members that his leadership will not discriminate based on tribe, religious, gender or political affiliations.
He said: “As speaker of this noble assembly, I promise to serve with the fear of God, trust and humility”.
