The Taraba state house of assembly has elected Mark Useni representing takum one constituency as the new speaker of the house.
This follows the resignation of speaker Josiah Sabo Kente earlier yesterday.
Mr Kente who said he resigned in the interest of peace in the state was elected speaker in November 2013 following the death of his predecessor, Haruna Tsokwa.
Meanwhile, the house has reaffirmed the reinstated deputy governor Danladi Sani Abubakar as the acting governor of Taraba state.
