The Speaker of the Edo State House of Assembly, Mr. Frank Okiye, has rejected the move by the House of Representatives to shut down the Assembly.
He stated this in a statement, on Wednesday, shortly after the House of Representatives took the decision in Abuja.
The Federal lawmakers had asked the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, and the Director-General of the Department of State Services (DSS), Yusuf Bichi, to shut down the Edo Assembly.
They had also called on the state governor, Godwin Obaseki, to issue a fresh proclamation within one week, in the interest of peaceful coexistence of the state.
In his reaction, Okiye told Channels Television that a competent court had already retained the security agencies from taking such an action.
He insisted that the rule of law was prevailing in the State Assembly.
The Edo Speaker said, “Here, there is peaceful conduct of our operation here and the people that are in the National Assembly do not have such powers to issue out such orders.
“I repeat they do not have it. So, it is condemnable and should be resisted.” (Channels TV)
