Edo lawmakers still defiant, speaker admits 2 members

                            

Lawmakers in the Edo State House of Assembly on Monday interrupted their long adjournment to admit new members-elect.

The lawmakers last week Monday adjourned sitting till July 17 shortly after the House was inaugurated and the Speaker and Deputy Speaker elected.

A total of 15 lawmakers-elect were absent at the inauguration on the guise that they were not informed about the event.

The 15 lawmakers-elect were believed to have the backing of National Chairman of the APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.

Two lawmakers-elect, Emmanuel Okoduwa (Esan North East II) and Sunny Ojiezele (Esan South East) on Monday dumped the Group of 15 protesting lawmakers-elect and presented themselves to Speaker Frank Okiye for swearing-in.

Speaker Okiye urged the two lawmakers to be good ambassadors of their constituencies and congratulated them for completing their documentation.

“We cut short our break because some members have concluded their documentation.

“This was done to show to the world that nobody is being shut out.

“Nobody was shut out. Anybody or group that complete his documentation in line with extant rules will be sworn-in.

On threat by Speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly and Chairman of the Conference of Speakers of State Legislature, Mudashiru Obasanjo, that he would not be admitted into the conference unless a proper inauguration is down, Okiye said, “I did not hear from him but I will just laugh. I laugh.”
