The House of Representatives on Wednesday directed Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, to issue a new proclamation for the proper constitution of the State House of Assembly.
The order came on the heels of the crisis rocking the State Assembly which was constitued by nine members out of 24 at about 9.30pm on the night of June 17, 2019.
The House also directed the Inspector General of Police, IGP and the Director-General of the Department of State Service, DSS to shut down the Assembly and provide adequate security to allay further fears of intimidation and threat as alleged by member-elect.
The decision was taken at the Committee of the Whole when the House adopted the recommendations of its Committee set up to investigate the crisis bedeviling the House.
Where these measures fail, the House has also resolved assume the functions of the House as stipulated in section 11(4) of the 1999 constitution as amended
