PDP Set To ‘Change The Change’ In 2019The Edo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described the impeachment saga in the state House of Assembly as a mockery of democracy and the legislative procedure.
In an interview with Channels Television in Benin City the Edo State capital on Monday, Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr Chris Nehikhare said the action of the lawmakers leaves much to be desired and should be condemned by well-meaning people of Edo State.
“The Edo State House of Assembly and the Edo State APC government have a knack for changing the decisions of the House of Assembly. You will recall that the last time there was a change for a jeep, for an SUV the Speaker relinquished her position even though she was chosen by majority of the members of the Edo state House of Assembly. What we have witnessed again today, we suspect is somebody who wants a Jeep. I do not think this impeachment will stand the test of time.”
His comments follow the impeachment of the Speaker of the Edo State House of Assembly, On Monday, Justin Okonoboh by the lawmakers at the Assembly complex in Benin City, the Edo State capital.
Meanwhile, the lawmakers have elected a member of the House, Honourable Kabiru Ajoto, as the new speaker.
