EYM Condemns plot by Edo South APC to install Okaeben as Speaker, sends SOS to Obaseki, Esan people to rise in defence of democracy

The Esan Youths Movement (EYM), the apex Social Cultural Development Organization of all Esan people has condemned in totality the recent plot by the ruling APC caucus in Edo South to install Hon Chris Okaeben as the next speaker of the Edo State House of Assembly.

Speaking to newsmen in Ekpoma, the headquarters of the Movement, Kingsley Ohens, the national president of EYM revealed that the recent move by the Edo South Caucus of the ruling party to install Hon Chris Okaeben representing Oredo Constituency amount to betrayal of trust, outright violation of the principles of federal character as enshrined in the constitution and a disgrace to democracy.

Ohens call on the Governor, Mr Godwin Obaseki to use his good office to ensure justice is done in the 9th Edo Assembly by making sure one of the Member from Edo Central is made the speaker since Edo South and North are already governor and deputy governor respectively. This will go a long way to give the Esan a sense of belonging. It cannot be business as usual. This time APC won all the six seats in the last election. Esan is no longer in opposition as previously alleged as the reason for not allowing Esan person emerge.

Comrade Ohens further send an SOS (save our soul) to all Esan People home and abroad to condemn the plot in totality and lend a voice to the campaign to reinstall the dignity and pride of place of the Esan people.
