Edo Crisis: Court Orders Senate, Reps Not To Take Over Assembly

An Abuja Division of the Federal High Court on Wednesday ordered the Senate and the House of Representatives to halt their plan to take over the legislative duties of the Edo State House of Assembly.

Justice Taiwo Taiwo made the order at the resumed hearing in the case instituted by the Edo State Government to challenge the directive by the National Assembly to the Governor Godwin Obaseki, to issue a fresh proclamation of the state’s House of Assembly.

The National Assembly threatened to take over the duties of the State House of Assembly if the governor fails to make the fresh proclamation within three weeks.

When the matter came up today, Justice Taiwo ordered parties in the case to maintain status quo pending the hearing and determination of the case.
