It was a shocking evening on Sunday, December 1, as Peter Diah, the speaker of the Taraba state House of Assembly, tendered his resignation as head of the legislative chamber.

It is not known the actual reason Diah took the decision, but he confirmed the development and said it was for personal reasons.
He, according to Vanguard, refused to give further details of his actions but promised to speak on it on Monday, December 2.
Diah, a representative of Mbamga constituency of the state is serving his fifth term and had been speaker since the eighth Assembly of the state.

He was renominated in June 2019 for another term as speaker. He would have emerged as one of the few longest serving speakers of a House of Assembly if he had completed this term. reports that the resignation of the speaker is coming just 12 days after an appeal court sitting in Abuja, Nigeria's capital, confirmed Darius Ishaku as the validly elected governor of the state in the 2019 general election.

In delivering the ruling, the appeal court threw out the case filed by the All Progressives Congress (APC) against the governor, a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
