The deputy speaker of the Edo House of Assemblyr, Victor Edoror, has been impeached.
Edoror was impeached this morning on grounds of corruption, misappropriation of funds and act capable of destabilising the house. He was also suspended for three months.
Consequently, Justin Okonobo, the former speaker of the house, has been elected the new deputy speaker.
Also suspended alongside the deputy speaker for three months were Mr Foly Ogedengbe, member representing APC Owan East and Mr Ganiyu Audu, member representing APC Etsako West 1 constituencies, for their unruly behaviour during plenary.
While on the impeachement of his deputy, the speaker of the House, Kabiru Adjoto said
”we needed to have a new deputy speaker because of the excesses of the impeached deputy speaker. I and 20 other members of the house remained committed to the All Progressive Congress (APC) and cannot leave the party. We are even more committed to governor Godwin Obaseki and the re-election of president Muhammadu Buhari in 2019,”.
