Edo State Deputy Speaker, Hon. Yekini Idiaye has alleged that the state executive led by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, standard bearer, Governor Godwin Obaseki has made the legislature irrelevant.
Idiaye and four other lawmakers declared their support for Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, for the forthcoming governorship election.
The lawmakers are among the 10 that were inaugurated in July 2019 while 14 others remain to be inaugurated due to the crisis that rocked the APC then.
According to Channels Television, the lawmakers said their decision was to remain in the now opposition party in the State on whose platform they were elected.
The lawmakers vowed not to follow Governor Godwin Obaseki, to his new party, the PDP.
