Assembly Orders Shaibu’s Impeachment Notice By Substitution.

Edo State House Assembly has directed that the impeachment notice on the state Deputy Governor, Phillip Shaibu, be published in national dailies.

This followed the alleged refusal of the deputy governor to acknowledge the notice served on him by the House last week, after the lawmakers commenced impeachment proceedings against Shaibu, accusing him of perjury and leaking of government’s secrets.

The impeachment notice is believed to be the latest development in the rift between Shaibu and his principal, Governor Godwin Obaseki, and there had been an uneasy calm between the deputy governor and his principal since last year when Shaibu declared his interest in joining this year’s governorship race.

The House took the decision to serve the notice by substitution on resumption of plenary on Monday where the Speaker of the Edo State House Assembly, Blessing Agbebaku, alleged that Shaibu had rejected the impeachment notice served on him by the House.

He then directed the Clerk of the House, Yahaya Omogbai, to publish the notice in national dailies.
