The Edo state House of Assembly, EDHA, imbroglio, seems to be taking another dimension as the All Progressives Congress, APC, leaders in Esan Central local government area, in a meeting held recently, at the residence of Hon.

the Speaker of the 7th EDHA assembly, only for Obaseki, Anselm Ojezua,

Edo stat. But, we are watching to see how it will all end…’
