Edo Assembly Impeaches Deputy Speaker
The Edo State House of Assembly has impeached its Deputy Speaker Hon. Tiger Edoror.
Edoror’s impeachment followed a motion moved by a member representing Oredo East Constituency, Hon. Osaigboyo Oyoha, alleging financial misappropriation, anti-party activities and corruption against the former Deputy Speaker.
His impeachment, however, led to a rowdy session as him and some of his loyalists tried to resist the action.
When calm was returned, the impeached Deputy Speaker, a member representing Owan East Constituency, Folly Ogedengbe, and another member representing Etsako West constituency, Gani Audu, were suspended for three months.
The House later elected Justin Okonobo as the new Deputy Speaker.
Hon. Okonobo was a former Speaker and a member representing Igueben constituency.
