Monday Igbuya Journey in Politics
Igbuya’s political journey has been marked by various notable events. On May 11, 2017, during his time as Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly, Igbuya faced impeachment proceedings, which resulted in his removal from office.
In a surprising turn of events, on September 17, 2018, Monday Igbuya made the decision to leave the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the party he was associated with, and joined the All Progressives Congress (APC). This political switch demonstrated his flexibility and willingness to explore new avenues.
Igbuya’s political aspirations extended beyond his party affiliations. He contested as the House of Representatives candidate for the APC in both the 2019 and 2023 elections. However, despite his efforts, he faced defeats in both instances.
His appointment as an NDDC Board member representing Delta State showcases his ongoing involvement in public service and regional development. With a history in the Delta State House of Assembly and his attempts at national representation, Igbuya’s experience positions him to contribute to the NDDC’s mission of fostering growth and progress in the Niger Delta region.
As Monday Igbuya steps into his new role, his past experiences in the political landscape of Delta State and his recent appointments will likely shape his contributions to the NDDC’s endeavors. The Niger Delta region will be watching to see how his presence influences the commission’s initiatives and policies moving forward.
