Godwin Obaseki of Edo State, yesterday, recorded a heavy political boost in the tussle to control the Edo State House of Assembly ahead of the 2020 Edo state Guber elections as two members-elect loyal to the national chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC) Comrade Adams Oshiomhole was inaugurated by the speaker, Rt Hon. Frank Okiye.

This brings the number of inaugurated members of the Assembly to 11 from the original nine inaugurated on the 17th of June 2019 while depleting the 15 lawmakers loyal to the camp of Oshiomhole to 13.

Sunday Ojiezele, representing Esan South East and Emmanuel Okoduwa representing Esan North East Constituency II were the two newly sworn-in members.

The pair took the oath of office after completing due documentation and were formally inaugurated by the speaker.

The Speaker stated during the sitting that the inauguration was done after the members had completed documentation and to also prove to the world that the lawmakers were not shielding anyone from accessing the House.

In his address to journalists, Okiye said, “After the inauguration of the House, the sitting was adjourned to July 17, but exigencies have necessitated the recall of members from their various committee assignments, reason being that it has become very necessary to demonstrate to the world that this House is not intended to shut out anybody.

“Last Friday, the Clerk of the House brought to my knowledge that two members-elect have completed their documentation. I immediately told them to come forward for inauguration, and issued a notice of this sitting where the members were inaugurated.”

He predicted the move on the need to encourage members-elect who are foot-dragging to complete their documentation urging that “they should know that we were serious when we told them to complete their documentation and come forward to be sworn-in. As a matter of fact, this House has a responsibility to the people. We must hit the ground running. We have constituted our Principal Officers Council so that some decisions that need to be referred to the Principal Officers can now be done and the council can take decisions.”
