Twelve lawmakers-elect of the Edo state house of assembly that have hitherto not been sworn in for about one year, have reportedly taken their oath of office.
The crisis between Godwin Obaseki, the governor, and Adams Oshiomhole, former national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), had split the assembly and the crisis had hindered the swearing in of members loyal to Oshiomhole.
The faction immediately elected Victor Edoror as Speaker.
The faction loyal to Obaseki had controlled the assembly while the loyalists of Oshiomhole were left out despite all attempts to swear them in.
There was a twist in the whole scenario, when some of the lawmakers in the camp of Obaseki endorsed Osagie Ize-Iyamu for the forthcoming gubernatorial elections in the state.
The move prompted the pro-Oshiomhole lawmakers to make a move for their stalled inauguration.
An unidentified source revealed that the house of assembly has been mandated to immediately push for the impeachment of Obaseki.
