Edo Assembly Crisis: Our Stand

By Parliamentary Association of Nigeria, Edo State Branch

Edo Assembly Crisis: Our Stand By Parliamentary Association of Nigeria, Edo State Branch Gentlemen of the press, on behalf of members of Edo branch of Parliamentary Association of Nigeria, let me begin by thanking you for honouring our invitation to this press conference. The main objective is to clear the air in view of incessant media enquiries on our position with regard to the present state of affairs. For the avoidance of doubt, members of the Parliamentary Association of Nigeria remain civil servants guided by extant civil service rules which forbid us from partisan politics. As employees of the Edo State House of Assembly Service Commission, we are loyal to the constituted authority at the legislative branch of government. There is no doubt about the legitimacy of Right Honorable Uyi Igbe as the de facto and de jure Speaker of Edo House of Assembly or question about those who are bonafide members of the House. While it is true that there was disorder at the Assembly Complex two weeks ago making it impossible for our members to discharge their duties, we wish to state that normalcy has since been restored as the assembly moves its plenary to the old legislative chamber following the commencement of renovation work at the Anthony Enahoro Complex. At the new location, our members have continued to dutifully collaborate with the Sergeant-At-Arms to offer ancillary services to the assembly-in-session. While we appreciate the concern of the leadership of the state branch of the Nigeria Labour Congress on the welfare of our members, we wish to state that our members no longer face any threat as they go about their normal duties at the old legislative chamber. As such, our members don’t see any need in embarking on any industrial action on account of threat to our personal safety. If anything, our only prayer today is that the ongoing renovation works at the Anthony Enahoro House be expedited so that some of our members who have relocated to the old legislative chamber can quickly return to their desks in the office by the Ring Road. Consequent upon the above, all workers of the Edo State House of Assembly are to report to their duty post on Monday, July 14, 2014, at the EDHA Service Commission at Oguola Crescent, Ihama, GRA, Benin City.

Gentlemen of the press, on behalf of members of Edo branch of Parliamentary Association of Nigeria, let me begin by thanking you for honouring our invitation to this press conference. The main objective is to clear the air in view of incessant media enquiries on our position with regard…

1ST SAMUEL,CHAPTER 10,VERSE 11:::

" ...What is this that has come over the son of Kish? Is Saul also among the Prophets?

Yesterday,I read somewhere that Oshiomhole is ORDERING Edo People not to vote for Jonathan but to vote for Buhari. If that order is not a product of delusion of grandeur,I don't know what is.

EDE N'ERHENA VBE EDO

"

These anti-Edo political organizations you folks went to join are the most anti-African - and Africans - in the world.

They're worse than anything; we obviously can't stop you though, even Ewuare II's manifest destiny lies in our own regional party.

We have egba Omo Oduduwa and so on, NPC, AG, the forerunner of them all NCNC and then now these cancers of today.

Stay "with them", but register for your most important election first: your local election, register Edo Political Front, and if you don't, vote the front.

No self respecting Edo will - in the future - find themselves the flag bearers and cheerleaders of foreign parties with indirect rule political and economic mandates, it just doesn't work.

No sane Edo person lives to "have the ear" of someone who doesn't have Edo at their heart.

The Supreme Court is the place to remove the frustration of these lethargic and "periodic" additions to the voting rolls; here - where I live - you can fill in the forms regarding changing your voter registration at the post office and other easy access places.

At the rate things are going we're going to find ourselves truly in decline as our populations suffer from simple things like protein deficiencies in children
