…receives EDSIEC nominees from Governor Obaseki.
By Lucky Isibor
Speaker of the Edo State House of Assembly, Kabiru Adjoto, has complied with the order of the Supreme Court by swearing in Mr. Godwin Adenomo as the new lawmaker representing Ovia South West.
The Supreme Court last week sacked Mr. Sunday Aghedo and ordered him to refund all allowances and salaries he earned as a lawmaker, and declared Adenomo winner of the All Progressives Congress (APC) primaries.
Speaker Adjoto informed the lawmakers that Adenomo has forwarded copies of declaration of assets and liabilities to the Speaker’s office.
“It is constitutional for every public office holder to declare their assets before taking oath of allegiance.
“The house is in receipt of the Supreme Court judgment to the effect that Mr Godwin Adenomo be sworn in as the lawmaker representing Ovia South West,” he said.
Also at yesterday’s plenary, the lawmakers received a letter from Governor Godwin Obaseki, requesting the House to confirm nominees for the Edo State Independent Electoral Commission (EDSIEC).
The letter reads: “I write to request the house to confirm Mr. Stanley Orobator, Mrs. Ododo Odaro and Kingsley Avanrenren, Austin Agbator, Emmanuel Ehiabhi, Asif Usman and Jonathan Anierua as members of EDSIEC.”
