The Deputy Speaker of the Edo State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Yekini Idiaye and four other lawmakers have declared their support for the Governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu in the September 19 gubernatorial election.

The lawmakers were among the 10 that were inaugurated in July 2019 while 14 others are yet to be inaugurated.

They declared that their decision is to remain in the APC on whose platform they were elected, insisting on not joining the state governor, Godwin Obaseki in his new party, the PDP.

The lawmakers also alleged that the state Executive led by Governor Obaseki has made the legislature irrelevant and unable to perform its functions as enshrined in the constitution.

Recall that OyoNews had exclusively reported that ahead of the September, 19, 2020 elections in Edo State, there have been a backlash of resignations from ‘trusted allies’ of the incumbent Governor, Godwin Obaseki.
