The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has slammed the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu over his comments on Edo State House of Assembly crisis.
Tinubu had alleged that Governor Godwin Obaseki has resorted to the ‘strong-arm tactics of dictators.
According to him, Obaseki committed an impeachable offence by not inaugurating the assembly members timely and the lawmakers have not indicated an interest in removing him from office.
Reacting to Tinubu’s allegations, Chairman of the Edo PDP Campaign Council, Dan Orbih said the National Leader ought to know that once a proclamation is made by the governor, the law prevents him from making another.
“Reading through his statement, I have come to the conclusion that certainly he is not aware of the issues concerning the unfortunate incident at the State House of Assembly.I should expect as a former Governor of Lagos State, he should know better that once a proclamation is made by the governor of a state, the law does not allow him to make a second proclamation.“ Read also: Obaseki’s Woeful Leadership Of Edo State Would Be Brought To An End Very Soon – Tinubu
“The governor made a proclamation for the House. After that event, about 10 members turned out to take their oath of office. The other 14 members stayed away from the House“, he said.
