More political trouble in Edo State as APC Legislatures Suspends 4 PDP members.

Hell broke loss last week at the Edo State House of Assembly as the APC house members suspends the 4 PDP members who recently defected from the APC to PDP. The suspended members backed with other PDP members went into the House, sat and also suspended the Speaker who is the leader of the APC. As expected a free for all fight broke out and the Police had to come in to maintain peace. The APC went to court, got a interim injunction. Restraining the PDP suspended members from entry the complex of the house of Asmebly. It also stop them from entering the. Official home. Although, they appealed the Judgement but today Monday they went to the house in breach of the judgement. They say it is a kangaroo judgement. At their sitting in the House today they're sorted to playing indoor games as both parties were present in the House chambers.

Political wahala in Edo State

Trouble is brewing in the APC in Edo State. The whole problem started when the party held their ward and local government congress. If you will recall that the ANPP, the CPC & the ACN formed the APC. But before the merger, the ACN had about three major factions with several other lesser factions. The factions where lead by Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, Dr. Egberamwen Odobo who is the Deputy Governor and the Governors faction. However, as the faction battle persisted the Odubu faction was forced to work with the Governor's factions. It was at the Congress that the Ize-Iyamu's faction was roundly defeated. Being that it is the ward that determines who goes to the LGA, State and Federal. It is also the foundation of who becomes what in the system Like Governors & Presidents. As at press time, the Ize-Iyamu faction has concluded plans to decamp to the PDP. They have even gone as far as to Aso Rock, the Nigeria Presidential seat to meet with President to formalize modality of their coming into the PDP. Another leader of one of the lesser faction, chief Solomon Iyobosa Edebiri had already decamped into the PDP.
