Sequel to the lingering face-off between Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki and his Deputy, Philip Shaibu, the Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Blessing Agbebaku has said there was no plan to impeach the deputy governor.
Agbebaku made this known during a visit to Governor Obaseki by the 24 members of the Assembly at the Government House, in Benin City, on Friday.
This comes reports in the media that the Deputy Governor had decamped from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The allegation resulted to the speculation that the State Governor, Obaseki plotted to impeach the Shaibu.
But, the Speaker, Agbebaku while clearing the air said there no time the governor reached out to him to orchestrate the impeachment of Shaibu saying that the speculation was figment of people’s imagination.
“We are here to clear the air on the insinuation of the impeachment of the Deputy Governor of Edo State. I want to let the people of Edo State know that there was nothing of such in the State House of Assembly, ” he said.
