Edo State governor, Godwin Obaseki has once again expressed his resolve to free the state from the grip of a “certain individual who believes his stature is weightier than the entire people of the state”.
Governor Obaseki made the declaration in Abuja when he played host to a delegation of Benin Community in the Federal Capital Territory.
The state has been embroiled in crisis following the election of a Speaker for the Edo State House of Assembly by 9 members in the 24 member Parliament.
The House of Representatives on Wednesday passed a resolution that the State Assembly be shut down. The Senate ad-hoc committee on the crisis led by Senator Abdullahi Sabi met with twelve of the aggrieved lawmakers on Thursday.
