The Speaker and Deputy Speaker of the Edo State House of Assembly have been impeached.

Both men were removed on Tuesday, May 3, 2016.

The Speaker of the House, Victor Edoror, and his deputy were accused of incompetence and high-handedness.

It is a 24-member Assembly and the two principal officers were impeached by 15 members.

The former Speaker and his deputy came into office about a year ago.

A new speaker, Mrs. Elizabeth Ative, was elected after their impeachment as replacement.
