Edo Assembly lifts suspension of ex-Speaker, Justin Okonoboh

The Edo State House of Assembly has lifted the suspension of ex-Speaker, Justin Okonoboh, and Majority Leader, Foly Ogedengbe.

The House resolution followed the recommendations of an Ad-hoc Committee which had the new Deputy Speaker, Victor Edoro, as Chairman.

The chairman of the committee explained to the House that the former speaker and majority leader were “seemingly cooperative” with investigations, while Ativie and Igbas allegedly showed no respect to the committee and the House as at the time of submitting its preliminary report.

Edoro also noted that some of the property of the Assembly had been returned by the two suspended members, prompting the House to pass a resolution lifting their suspension.

However, the House said that the suspension of the former deputy speaker, Elizabeth Ativie and the member representing Esan North-East II, Mr. Magnus-Desmond Ezehi, will remain until they showed cooperation with the committee.

“Consequently, the suspension of the members, Okonoboh and Ogedengbe, is hereby lifted, while Ativie and Igbas remain suspended,” Adjoto said shortly after the resolution was passed, yesterday.

Meanwhile, the Assembly has reconstituted its Principal Officers’ Council and 23 House committees.
