Speaker, Edo State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Frank Okiye, has said he doesn’t plan to dump the All Progressives Congress like Gov. Godwin Obaseki and his deputy, Rt. Hon. Philip Shaibu, in a bid to prove his loyalty.
Recall that on Tuesday, the governor and his deputy in Abuja, tendered their resignation letters to the party after the APC screening committee disqualified the governor last week.
Speaking with Journalists yesterday, Okiye said he hasn’t made up his mind yet, on whether he would stay or not.
He said this shortly after an end of a ceremony to mark his one year in office as Speaker of the State House of Assembly.
According to him, ‘’I would have been very happy if the twenty-four members of the house were completed, I have only done my part and the power to call for another inauguration of the house goes beyond me. But I have always maintained a cordial relationship with the other members who have not been inaugurated.
‘’They are my friends and we have always talked and I will not deny the fact that each time we talked we try to reflect on the possibility of their coming back to be reinaugurated.
‘’For me, you know it is like official and I have done what I feel on behalf of the house, what I feel is in the best interest of the house. The decision to do otherwise is above me
