EYM to Edoror: Return home and represent your people now, else

EYM to Edoror: Return home and represent your people now, else

Irrua 21st August 2019

The Esan Youths Movement (EYM), the apex socio cultural development organization comprising of over 50,000 Esan youths worldwide has called on the member elect supposed to represent Esan Central LGA in the Edo 7th Assembly, Hon Victor Edoror to return home and represent his constituency now.

EYM made this request today at Irrua the headquarters of Esan Central LGA following the consistence refusal by Hon Edoror to be inaugurated into the 7th Edo Assembly despite entreaties by well meaning Esan people including the EYM following crises and power games bedeviling the assembly.

The Esan Youths Movement in a statement signed by the National President, Comrade Kingsley Ohens decried the situation whereby a whole Local Government Area remains unrepresented as very pathetic and undemocratic. It hinders development of the local government area.

You could recall that the same Hon Edoror was suspended in the last assembly for many months and when he later won in court, all his entitlements were paid to him fully except the constituency allowance, the only true dividends to the people of Esan Central. A situation where the grass suffers when two elephants fights.

It is interesting to also remember that Hon Edoror during the last Assembly lost out as speaker and was suspended for 3 months as manipulated by the new Edo godfather that he is now fighting for against the interest of his own constituency and people.

After some time he was called back again and was made house committee chairman on agriculture. He later became deputy speaker and was impeached again for about 6 months and won the case in court after the 6th Assembly ended.

Now this current 7th Assembly is going on and we are counting. Put all the time Esan Central has not been in the house, it’s about 8 or 9 months now.

The Esan Youths Movement is therefore calling on Hon Edoror to return home and be inaugurated like other representatives from Esanland in order to enhance the socio economic development of his constituency.

Esan Central LGA remain the only Esan constituency that has no representative in the Edo State House of Assembly. Hon Edoror should put aside any grievance and interest and let the will of the people overrides.
