FREEPRESS – There’s no denying the fact that a constitutional aberration occurred right inside a Law making complex few days ago in Edo State, where in 9 members elect were sworn in against 15 others, an event which was against their own volition.
The perplexity that has beset this contemptuous occurrence is the involvement of the state’s chief executive officer.
The constitution is very clear in terms of the provisions for the inauguration of a State House of Assembly. Inaugurating a Law making house members outside the context and provisions of the constitution glaringly signals threat to a democratic system.
Bearing the aforesaid in mind, it is justifiable and accurate to opine that Edo State executive arm of government is heading to completely MAR the hard-earned democratic system of the state.
In the discontinuity of this show of shame, I call on the office of the President and other relevant offices and agencies to put an end to this unscrupulous behavior emanating from the Edo State leadership, I so call.
