The decision came after the reps debated the crisis in the Edo state House of Assembly.

Recall that Obaseki had accused the national leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) chaired by his predecessor, Adams Oshiomhole, of being responsible for the crisis in the state’s House of Assembly.

According to him, the party’s leadership failed to investigate issues in the House of Assembly thus making the crisis linger.
