The crisis rocking the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo state yesterday took a new dimension as the state of House of Assembly last night held its inaugural sitting amid tight security with only nine members loyal to the state governor, Godwin Obaseki sworn-in.
15 members loyal to the national chairman of the party and a former governor of the state, Adams Oshiomhole were absent at the sitting of the 7th Assembly that commenced at about 9:30pm. The members present were Hon. Nosa Okunbor; Hon. Henry Okuarobo; Hon. Uyi Ekhosuehi; Hon. Marcus Onobun; Hon. Ephraim Anehbosele; Hon. Roland Asoro; Hon. Eric Okaka; Hon Frank Okiye and Hon Yekini Idiaye. The nine members were ushered in to the Assembly by the clerk of the House, Audu Yahaya Omogbai who began the proceedings after he read the proclamation letter transmitted to him by Obaseki.
