Speaker of the Edo State House of Assembly, Frank Okiye, has advised individuals against the inauguration of the Assembly to go to court.
In a statement by his spokesperson, Aigbefo Iretiose, the speaker stated that the inauguration of the House of Assembly met the requirements of Nigeria constitution.
Okiye said: “The responsibility of the Edo State Governor, with regards to the inauguration of the House of Assembly, begins and ends with the issuance of a Proclamation Letter.
“Governor Obaseki duly issued the Proclamation Letter and the inauguration held at the House of Assembly.
“While the inauguration was ongoing, some of the members-elect left the venue of the news conference organised by some of them and went to the House of Assembly, where they presented themselves for inauguration at 3:30 pm.
“The House of Assembly is open to other members-elect who want to be inaugurated, just as Sunday Ojiezele and Emmanuel Okoduwa, who were inaugurated on Monday.”
He urged members-elect who are yet to be inauguration to complete their documentation and present themselves for inauguration at the Edo State House of Assembly.
