BREAKING: 12 anti-Obaseki lawmakers take oath of office as ‘plot to remove Edo gov thickens’

Twelve lawmakers-elect of the Edo state house of assembly have reportedly taken their oath of office.

This comes more than one year after they were elected.The faction has elected Victor Edoror as speaker. Edoror was impeached as deputy speaker in 2018.

The crisis between Godwin Obaseki, the governor, and Adams Oshiomhole, former national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), had split the assembly.

A faction loyal to the governor had been in charge of the assembly while the loyalists of Oshiomhole were left out despite all attempts to be inaugurated.

But as some of the lawmakers in the camp of Obaseki endorsed Osagie Ize-Iyamu, APC candidate for the September 19 gubernatorial election, the pro-Oshiomhole lawmakers relaunched the move for  their inauguration.

A source told TheCable that they took their oath of office at a hidden location in the state on Thursday.

The source said they have been mandated to remove Obaseki one month to the governorship election.

TheCable could not independently verify this claim.

Obaseki had defected from the APC to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) after he was screened out of the governorship race of the APC.
