Speaker Frank Okiye: Hope Uzodinma Wants To Forcefully Take Over Edo Assembly by ijustdey: 8:52pm On Aug 05, 2020
Benin – Right Honourable Frank Okiye, Speaker of the Edo State House of Assembly, on Wednesday called on President Muhammadu Buhari to rein in on Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State and other stakeholders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for allegedly planning to invade and forcefully take over the house of assembly.

Frank Okiye, in a statement alleged that Uzodinma and APC leaders are in a secret agreement with the impeached deputy speaker, Yekini Idiaye to import a fake made to take over the assembly.

He said this is akin, “to lighting a match in an already tensed political environment, which conflagration is capable of causing crisis in the state, and of a scale beyond our imagination.

“We recognise the constitutional right of the three members of the House of Assembly to support the candidate of their choice, but that should not distract them from coming to work to carry out the job they were elected for,” he added.

Reacting, Simon Ebegbulem, Imo State Commissioner for Special Projects, said the speaker is already jittery because of the imminent defeat in the coming election.

“The illegal Speaker and his governor are not making sense to me with this baseless allegation. I don’t even know what they are talking about because there is no House of Assembly in Edo state. I think that is why the so-called Speaker is running away from his shadow like a criminal that will always run once he sees a law enforcement agent.

“However, I don’t know why he should draw the leg of His Excellency, Governor Hope Uzodinma into his political problems. My Governor is interested in working with other APC governors and stakeholders to reclaim Edo State which has been an APC state before Governor Obaseki donated it to the PDP.

“The illegal Speaker and his principal are already jittery because of the imminent defeat in the coming election. You can see that his aides are resigning everyday including his Deputy Speaker,” he said.

Maintaining the balance of terror between Edo PDP and Edo APC is key to a fair contest. All involved should work harder at maintaining the balance of terror going forward! All involved should want to stay alive!

Obaseki and his speaker are yabaleft patient.

7 member is sitting out of 24 election house of assembly members and yet they are screaming that another person is planning to takeover the house with the other 17 members of the house.

How can 7 be important than 17?

This is not a big deal in nigerian politics because every party in Nigeria will wish to take over state assembly either forcefully or the opposite. Nigerian politics is a dirty one.
