Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State, has accused the Peoples Democratic Party of trying to snatch away Edo State like “a pickpocket eyeing someone’s purse in the market”.
Bello who made this claim in a statement released through his spokesman, Onogwu Mohammed, while reacting to the impeachment of the Edo State House of Assembly Speaker, described the emergence of the Factional speaker as a welcome development.
The Kogi Governor who noted that PDP snatched Edo State through the back door, promised that the APC Governorship candidate, Osagie Ize-Iyamu would be victorious in the September 19 election.
He felicitated with Mr Victor Edoror and Emmanuel Agbaje the new speaker and deputy speaker, respectively of the Edo State House of Assembly following their election by a majority of members in the Edo State capital, Benin City.
Governor Bello who revealed that Kogi State and Edo State shares boundary line, noted that the breakdown of law and order would affect the former.
He called on the Factional speaker and members of the State House of Assembly to work towards restoring order to the state legislature and find ways to work with other arms of their government in the best interests of Edo people.
Recall that 17 members of the 24-man Edo Assembly impeached the speaker of the House of Assembly, on Thursday.
