Edo Speaker Okiye impeached as new Speaker emerges

Share this story:

A speaker of the Edo State House of Assembly Hon. Francis Okiye has been impeached on Monday as a new speaker replaces him.

The impeachment letter was signed by 9 out of the 10 lawmakers present at plenary.

The plenary held at the Government House, where sittings have been holding since the shut down of the Assembly complex by Governor Obaseki claiming it is due for renovation.

Amb Marcus Onobun from Esan West constituency was elected to replace Okiye as the new speaker.

The impeachment is coming barely a month to the inauguration of Governor Obaseki for the second term in office.

Okiye, who only recently defected from the All Progressive Congress (APC) to Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), was accused of financial recklessness.
