Obaseki Vs Oshiomhole: Edo Speaker Breaks Silence On Assembly Crisis




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.
