Edo State House of Assembly has adjourned Sine die after a rowdy session that saw members venting their grievances unabated.

Some of their grievances, it was learnt, borders on general welfare of members, car allowance and constituency projects.

A member said, “it took the bravery of the Speaker, Hon. Victor Edoroh to pilot and manage the affairs of the House to the stage they finally disagreed with his methodology in handling the issues with the Executive Arm of Government.”

However, it was learnt that the Speaker continued to push his luck further at plenary, when he asked for a-two weeks adjournment to resolve the issues but was vehemently rejected by majority of the members who chanted Sine die, as they walk out.

It was gathered that the lawmakers had assembled for the day’s business at about 10:10am and begun the roll call of members.

A few minutes into the plenary, some lawmakers began to raise their voices against the Speaker of the House, Mr. Victor Edoror.

A shouting match was also said to have ensued among the members, in spite of efforts by Edoror to calm the situation.

The member representing Owan West constituency, Mr. Ojo Asein, later moved a motion for the house to adjourn.

Following the mood of the lawmakers, the Speaker succumbed and adjourned plenary for two weeks.

Efforts to speak with the aggrieved lawmakers were unsuccessful as they all left the premises immediately.
