Just In: Issue Fresh Proclamation or Risk Takeover of Edo Assembly, Senate Threatens Obaseki

The Senate on Tuesday directed the Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, to issue a fresh proclamation for the inauguration of the Edo State House of Assembly within one week.

The red chamber also said if the governor fails to do so within a week, the National Assembly should invoke its powers as contained in the Constitution by taking over legislative functions of the Edo State House of Assembly.

The development followed the adoption of the report of the Senate ad hoc committee on the Edo State House of Assembly crisis, presented by its chairman, Senator Sabi Abdullahi.
