Edo State Governor,Godwin Obaseki has spoken out on the reason why he can’t bring back the 14 Edo State House of Assembly Lawmakers,who are yet to be inaugurated. He gave his reason after He paid a thank you visit yesterday to the National Working Committee of the People Democratic Party {PDP], oyogist.com reports.

Governor Godwin Obaseki in a statement stated the following” They {lawmakers} refused to be inaugurated,they were listening to their godfather who kept hoping and promising that that he would unconstitutionally get the state House of Assembly to reissue a proclamation even after the court had settled the matter.


”For more than 180 days, they did not come, they refused to represent the people. Those seat became vacant,that what the constitution says. “They went to court after the seat were declared vacant by the speaker,there is noting I can do,to that,at this time. I wish it did not happened but people were playing God and promising what is not constitutionally possible.”

”It is not about me ,I am an elected Governor of Edo State.I am not the one,that planted people into the House of Assembly.”

And He concluded saying ”We should learn that democracy is underpinned by the constitution and the law,even if I want today to bring them back, I don’t have such powers.”
