Ganduje congratulates new Edo speaker, says the state will now witness proper legislative work

The Executive Governor of Kano State and Chairman of the Edo State Gubernatorial Campaign Council for APC, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has congratulated the new Speaker of Edo State House of Assembly, Victor Ederor.

This was contained in a statement released by the Ganduje’s Chief Press Secretary (CPS), Abba Anwar.

The CPS to the Governor said the governor’s congratulatory message extends to all the principal officers elected.

Ganduje said, with the new leadership in the Assembly, “proper legislative work would soon start to put the state on the right path.”

He said: “The new Edo Speaker’s election by the needed and constitutionally accepted number of the state legislators, is a welcome development.

“It is therefore, pertinent for us to congratulate him alongside other principal officers of the House.”

Ganduje views Ederor’s emergence as Speaker of the House as a good omen for the All Progressives Congress (APC), ahead of the official flag-off of campaign for the party’s candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, for the governorship of Edo State.

“Victor Ederor becoming Speaker is something that has eluded the State Assembly for over 13 months. And it has been practicalised just yesterday. What a constitutional reinstatement of the House leadership,” Ganduje said.

The governor urged the new House leaders to work and act in accordance with the laid down rules and regulations, unlike what is obtained in the Edo state executive.

“Your constitutionally accepted election is an important signal that your actions will continue to be guided by constitutional provisions,” the Kano governor stated.
