Edo state deputy speaker impeached

The Edo House of Assembly on Monday impeached the Deputy speaker, Victor Edoror for corruption, misappropriation of funds and act capable of destabilizing the house.

Mr Justin Okonobo, member representing Igueben constituency was 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.

Mr Ogedengbe and Audu were suspended for unruly behaviour.

The impeachment followed a motion moved by the chief whip, Iyoha Osaigbovo, member representing APC Oredo East and seconded by Mr Emmanuel Agbaje, member representing APC Akoko-Edo 11 constituency.

Osaigbovo said:

”Mr Speaker there is an impeachment motion before me and duly signed by 16 members of the house.

“Members who signed have found the deputy speaker to be corrupt and engaging in act capable of destabilizing the house.

Violence had reportedly broken out of the house prior to the impeachment exercise.

Addressing newsmen shortly after the impeachment, the Speaker, 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 and the re-election of in 2019,”
