Speaker, Edo State House of Assembly (EDHA), Rt. Hon. Blessing Agbebaku, has said that the house has followed due process in impeaching the state former deputy governor, Philip Shaibu.

He said this while giving journalists the break down of achievements of the house in one year.

Recall that Philip Shaibu was impeached in the month of April following the adoption of the report of the seven-man investigative panel set up by the Assembly to probe allegations of misconduct leveled against him.

“To me, I will stand tall to say it is a good record because we are doing our legislative duty.

“And that shows that the house, the 8th assembly is very independent. I also want to let you know clearly that the processes of impeachment were followed to the letter”, Agbebaku said.

Agbebaku while also reacting to the question of the suspensions of the three lawmakers, he said whatever that their constituencies are lacking due to their absence in the house, is the price they needed to pay for their misbehaviour.

“In every organization, you have rules and regulations. If you are saying that their constituencies are no longer represented, that is the price you pay for being disobedient or for beginning to disobey the rules of where you work.

“That is the price you pay when you go contrary to the house rules but what I will say, is that, a committee is being set up to look into their issues.

“So, in the next three weeks, the committee will submit their report and then from there, we now know the next line of action to take”, Agbebaku added.

The speaker while reeling out the achievements of the house in the year under review, said that the house made over 44 resolutions that has helped it achieved monumental success and 16 bills.

He said though the house was confronted with some challenges but with love and team spirit, the problems were surmounted.

He thanked the state governor, Mr Godwin Obaseki for his support in the year under review just as he promised that the house will always champion laws that will be of a greater benefits to the people of the state.
