Hon. Yekini Idiaye, the Deputy Speaker of the Edo State House of Assembly, has been impeached.
He was impeached by seven members of the Assembly during Wednesday’s plenary.
Speaker of the Assembly, Frank Okiye, said Idiaye was impeached over misconduct and revealing secret information of the Assembly.
It was, however, gathered that he was actually impeached for pledging loyalty for the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu.
The member representing Orhionmwon Constituency ll, Roland Asoro, was immediately elected Deputy Speaker.
It would be recalled that Idiaye had on Monday, August 3, pledged loyalty and support to Ize-Iyamu.
