A group called Edo for Good Governance (EGG), in a statement through its coordinator, John Ogbeide, yesterday alleged that the removal of the Speaker and the Deputy Speaker of the Edo House of Assembly is a prelude to the impeachment of the Deputy Governor of the state, Pius Odubu.

In the statement, the group condemned “the so-called impeachment of Edo speaker and deputy as a continuation of the plot to eliminate Deputy Governor Pius Odubu, who has indicated interest in the governorship ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC).”

The statement read further, “it is quite pathetic that a few days after the Deputy Governor narrowly escaped being assassinated in Auchi – an attack in which his DSS bodyguard and police escort commander sustained serious gun wounds – these anti-democratic forces have now shifted their weapons to the Edo House of Assembly.”
