The two lawmakers were reportedly accused of misconduct by their 16 other colleagues. Mrs. Elizabeth Ative was elected as the new speaker.

Governorship elections in the state are billed to hold in September with the incumbent governor. Adams Oshiomole’s second tenure comes to a close.

The deputy governor of the state Dr Odubu has declared interest to run for the governorship seat.  Days after his declaration, he was reportedly attacked by gunmen at the Auchi All Progressive Congress (APC) secretariat but escaped unhurt.
