THE House of Representatives may be poised to take over the affairs of the Edo state Assembly following the intractable crisis that hit the legislative house on June 17, 2019.

This followed a motion under matters of urgent public importance brought by Hon. Julius Ihovbare calling attention to the need to correct constitutional breach by the government of governor Godwin Obaseki.

Members speaking on the matter roundly condemned what they described as “executive rascality” demonstrated by the state governor who allegedly inaugurated 9 out of 24 members at about 10 pm without properly issuing the executive proclamation.

Member-elect of Edo State House of Assembly representing Owan East Constituency, Hon Eric Okaka, on Sunday, narrated how he and three others were kidnapped and forced at gunpoint to the House of Assembly for what he described as “illegal inauguration” on June 17.
