Scandal-ridden Kabiru Adjoto replaces Medical Doctor, Dr Justin Okonoboh as Speaker.
By: Omede James Samuel, Benin.
There’s currently pandemonium at the Edo State House of Assembly as the Speaker, Dr Justin Okonoboh, has been removed.
As at 11.00am the Speaker drove out of the House of Assembly complex.
It is now clear that Hon Kabiru Adjoto from Oshiomhole’s Edo North constituency has been appointed as the new Speaker.
This has once again destroyed the balance of power in Edo State which now established without doubt that the Edo Central District of Edo State have been deliberately mapped out by the APC for marginalisation.
The Governor is Edo South, the Deputy Governor is Edo North, the Chief Justice is Edo South and now the Speaker is also taken away from Edo Central to Edo North.
Urhokpota Reporters had in 2016 reported that the APC actually appointed Dr Justin Okonoboh only to fool the Esan people into believing that they weren’t mapped out for marginalisation.
Another dimension is the plot by Adams Oshiomhole to remove Governor Obaseki through impeachment to install his godson and cousin, Philip Shaibu, as governor.
