EDHA Is Not An Appendage To NASS, Court Okays Obaseki’s Proclamation


 

A Federal High Court sitting in Port Harcourt has upheld the proclamation of the seventh Edo State House of Assembly by Governor Godwin Obaseki.

In the final judgement delivered by Justice J.K Omotosho, the court ruled that a Governor does not have the powers to issue a second proclamation after a first proclamation has been made.

According to Justice Omotosho, the Governor of a state does not take directive from National Assembly, adding that the proclamation issued by Governor Obaseki is valid; to do otherwise is null and void.

He noted that the National Assembly lacks the jurisdiction to take over the Edo State House of Assembly, as doing so will amount to infringing on its right to function.
