Edo Guber. Poll: State Assembly members back Ize-Iyamu


The Deputy Speaker of Edo state House of Assembly Yekini Idiaye had pledged support for Osagie Ize-Iyamu,  candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC in the Sept.19 governorship election in the state.

The lawmakers also announced that they will not be joining the state governor, Godwin Obaseki to decamp to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

They also alleged that the state executive led by governor Obaseki has made the legislature irrelevant and unable to perform its functions as enshrined in the constitution.

This development is coming a day after lawmaker representing Akoko-Edo II in the state house, Emmanuel Agbaje publicly declared his support for Ize-Iyamu saying he was unable to meet his political obligations to his constituents under the present administration of Gov. Godwin Obaseki.
