House of Reps Moves To Take Over Edo State Assembly

The House of Representatives has been advised to take over the Edo State House of Assembly following the protracted crisis that is bedevilling the House.

This followed a motion under matters of urgent public importance brought by Hon. Julius Ihovbare calling attention to the need to correct constitutional breach by the government of governor Godwin Obaseki.

Members speaking on the matter roundly condemned what they described as “executive rascality” demonstrated by the state governor who allegedly inaugurated 9 out of 24 members at about 10 pm without properly issuing the executive proclamation.

Member-elect of Edo State House of Assembly representing Owan East Constituency, Hon Eric Okaka, on Sunday, narrated how he and three others were kidnapped and forced at gunpoint to the House of Assembly for what he described as “illegal inauguration” on June 17.
