Edo Assembly probes deputy speaker for alleged breach of powers

Edo Assembly probes deputy speaker for alleged breach of powers -

The Edo House of Assem­bly on Monday consti­tuted a five-man ad hoc committee to investigate alle­gations of breach of legislative powers against the Deputy Speaker, Victor Edoror.

The Speaker, Kabiru Adjo­to, who constituted the com­mittee at plenary, said the deputy speaker was being accused of divulging official secret to the public.

Adjoto explained that the obvi­ous thing to do was to investigate the allegations, saying that they were weighty and capable of bringing the house to disrepute.

He named members of the committee to include Messrs No­sayaba Okunbor, (APC Orhion­mwon East) who would serve as the Chairman, Victor Asein, (APC Owan West), Osaigbovo Iyoha, (APC Orhionmwon Ore­do East). Others are Mr. Festus Edughele, (APC Esan South- East) and Mr. Patrick Iruobe, member representing PDP Esan North East 1.
