The House of Reps ordered the closure of Edo Assembly.
The House of Representative has ordered the Police and state security service to close down Edo State house of Assembly.
The House of Representative asked the Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki to issue a fresh proclamation to convene the 9th Assembly within one week in line with section 105(3) of the constitution.
The house said the Governor should publish the date, time, and venue on National Daily and TV stations.
The house directed the Inspector general of police, and the state security service to shut down the house of assembly and to ensure adequate security.
This is coming days after Governor Obaseki Publicly accused the former Governor of the state and APC national chairman, Mr. Adam Oshiomole of being responsible for the crisis.
Obaseki had said his predecessor needed to hear from all sides in the matter before taking sides.
In the statement released by his special adviser on media and communication-strategy, Mr. C Osagie.
Apart from the fact that he based his conclusion on a totally false and baseless premise, we believe that he could have shown that he didn’t have a vested interest by simply inquiring from his friend, the governor, directly, or any official of the State Working Committee of our party to what actually transpired.
Oshiomhole’s failure to satisfy the basic tenets of natural justice which makes fair hearing from all sides of a matter mandatory, has clearly exposed his bias in this issue”
