The All Progressives Congress APC, is making moves to remove the Speaker of the Edo State House of Assembly ,Francis Okiye.and replace him with Yekini Idiaye, former Deputy Speaker of the Assembly who was impeached a week ago.
The party plots to use the new Speaker to swear in the 14 elected members who are yet to be sworn in since the House was inaugurated on June 17, 2019.
The implication is that as soon as the new members are inaugurated,they will begin impeachment process of the governor, Godwin Obaseki.
The House of Assembly had on Wednesday accused the Governor of Imo State and other APC leaders of planning to take over the Assembly with the importation of a new mace to actualise their plot..
The impeached Deputy Speaker, Yekini Idiaye had declared support for the APC before his impeachment,a move the Peoples Democratic party PDP said was facilitated by a N40million bribe by the leadership of the APC in Edo State.
The election of a new governor is barely six weeks away and already violence and other acts that breach the peace are being perpetuated by political parties.
