Infocraftdiary culled from Headline News
The ninth Senate has given a one-week ultimatum to Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State, to issue a fresh proclamation for the inauguration of the state House of Assembly, Tuesday.
The ultimatum “was sequel to the presentation at plenary of the report of the ad-hoc committee by the Chairman, Senator Sabi Abdullahi,” reports Headline News.
According to the report, “the upper legislative chamber said the National Assembly will not hesitate to take over the functions of Edo Assembly, in line with constitutional provisions, if the governor fails to do the needful during the stipulated period.”
Headline News also reports that “Edo state Assembly has been enmeshed in crisis since Governor Obaseki issued proclamation for the inauguration of the Assembly in June, which was attended by nine out of the 24-man Assembly.”
Recall that Infocraftdiary earlier on reported that House of Representatives had on July 17th, asked the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, to shut down Edo State House of Assembly, while Governor Obaseki was equally asked to issue fresh proclamation, for swearing in the State House of Assembly, within one week.
