However, their inauguration was stalled due to the battle between Ohiomhole and Obaseki over the ruling party’s governorship ticket.

According to Oshiomhole, it was unjustifiable that the 14 lawmakers-elect had not been inaugurated as the remaining 10 members loyal to Obaseki sit in the Government House.

He said:

“The 14 members elected to the Edo House of Assembly on APC platform, till now, have not been inaugurated. But, they committed no sin.

“They are being denied their right to be sworn in to represent their constituents. God will deliver justice to them in His own way and at His own determined time.”
