The impeachment letter was signed by 9 out of the 10 lawmakers present at plenary Monday morning.

The plenary held at the Government House, where sittings have been holding since the shut down of the Assembly complex by Obaseki claiming it is due for renovation. Amb Marcus Onobun from Esan West constituency, was elected to replace Okiye as new speaker.

The impeachment is coming barely a month to the inauguration of Governor Godwin Obaseki for a second term in office.
