Edo Assembly recalls suspended lawmaker, Iyamu

The Edo State House of Assembly on Monday announced the recall of one of three suspended lawmakers, Mr Bright Iyamu.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria, Iyamu (PDP-Orhionmwon South) was suspended on May 6, alongside two others over an alleged plot to impeach the Speaker and other principal officers of the Assembly.

The two lawmakers who are still on suspension are Donald Okogbe (PDP-Akoko-Edo II) and Adeh Isibor (APC-Esan North-East I).

Announcing the lifting of the suspension during plenary on Monday, the Speaker, Blessing Agbebaku, said that the House had found Iyamu to be remorseful.

Shortly after Iyamu’s recall, other lawmakers took turns to appeal to the Speaker to consider lifting the suspension on the two remaining lawmakers.

The Speaker, in his reaction, noted that Isibor had taken the matter to court.
