Anslem Ojezua, chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo state, says talks are ongoing to address the issues in the state house of assembly.
On Monday, some members of the assembly removed Justin Okonoboh and elected Kabiru Adjoto as the new speaker after a brawl.
Speaking with journalists on Tuesday after meeting Godwin Obaseki, governor of Edo state, Ojezua said there were ongoing consultations to ensure that Adjoto election conforms with party’s power sharing arrangement.
He said the change of leadership was nothing new as the national assembly has had similar changes.
“We sought to find out if there were fundamental issues that led to the impeachment between yesterday and today; but we have found out that there are none, but personal differences among members of the house,” Ojezua said.
“Everybody has accepted that a change of leadership has occurred, but it is not over yet. Talks are ongoing to address the issues.”
Adjoto representing Akoko Edo constituency 1, is the fourth speaker to be elected in the assembly since 2015.
