Edo State Assembly Recalls Suspended Lawmaker

421

Edo State House of Assembly has announced the recall of one of the three suspended lawmakers, Mr Bright Iyamu.

Recall that Iyamu (PDP-Orhionmwon South) was suspended on May 6, alongside two others over alleged plot to impeach the speaker and other principal officers of the assembly.

The two lawmakers, who are still on suspension, are Donald Okogbe (PDP-Akoko-Edo II) and Adeh Isibor (APC-Esan North-East I).
Announcing the lifting of the suspension during plenary in Benin, the Speaker, Blessing Agbebaku, said that the House had found Iyamu to be remorseful.

Shortly after Iyamu’s recall, other lawmakers took turns to appeal to the speaker to consider lifting the suspension of the two remaining lawmakers.

The speaker, in his reaction, said that Isibor had taken the matter to court.

One of the lawmakers, Nicholas Asonsere (PDP-Ikpoba-Okha), thereafter, passed a vote of confidence in the speaker and an unalloyed support of the Assembly to him.
