Edo Assembly commutes impeachment of Ex-Speaker, Okiye to resignation 


Edo State House of Assembly has commuted the impeachment of the recently impeached speaker of the House, Mr Francis Okiye to resignation.

The reversal of the impeachment followed a motion by the leader of the House, Mr Henry Okhuarobo who said the need became imperative due to appeals from their constituents to reverse the impeachment.

Consequently, the motion seconded by the member representing Esan North East two in the assembly, Mr Emmanuel Okoduwa which enjoyed the overwhelming support of the members was thereafter adopted by the House.

The House also recalled Mr Okiye from suspension and he later joined them to be part of the plenary.
