An interest Group, Egor Development Congress, EDC, comprising constituents of Member elected to represent Egor Constituency in the Edo State House of Assembly, Honourable Crosby Osadolor Eribo [Justice of Peace], has thrown their weight behind him in the ensuing crisis in the House.
In a statement issued on behalf of the Group in Benin on Tuesday, 13th of August, 2019, the Director of Research and Publicity of EDC, Mr. Osazee Enogieru, stated that Hon. Crosby Eribo, “is standing on the right side of history in the Matter”.
The Group posited that, “When the trajectory in the current crisis in the Edo State House of Assembly is recounted to the next Generation, Hon. Crosby will stand out in his predilection for due process and his prim proper candour that is scandal free in the midst of provocation “
The Group condemned the brigandage and circumvention of due process that trailed the purported proclamation and inauguration of the House and called for a proper inauguration of the Edo State House of Assembly ,stating that in the eyes of the Law the House lacks the requisite legitimacy to function, calling on well meaning Edolites [Edo indigenes] to rise up for what is right .
They commended Hon. Eribo for standing for what is right, stating inter alia, “That no House of Assembly can be inaugurated by 9:30pm in the night”. EDC stressed.
