The Speaker of Edo State House of Assembly, Frank Okiye has reacted to his impeachment by 17 members of the state Assembly.
Mr Okiye in his reaction on Thursday described his removal as speaker of the house as a non-issue.
Naija News had earlier reported that a new speaker, Victor Edoror, was elected at an undisclosed location in Benin City during an emergency plenary session attended by 17 elected members on Thursday.
The lawmakers during the plenary also inaugurated 14 lawmakers-elect that had yet to be inaugurated, after which they allegedly impeached Frank Okiye and Roland Asoro as Speaker and Deputy Speaker respectively.
But reacting to the impeachment, Okiye simply said, “It is a non-issue and I do not want to respond to such issues.”
Recall that security operatives were spotted at the entrance of the State’s House of Assembly as members convened for another plenary.
