Justin Okonoboh, former speaker of the Edo State House of assembly has attributed his impeachment to conflict of interest.
Speaking with Journalists over the weekend in Benin, Okonoboh said that he doesn’t feel betrayed about the impeachement, adding that he had moved on.
“politics is about interest. I don’t see any betrayal at all. I don’t hold anything against anybody. It is for their interest. I have since resumed,” Okonoboh said.
Okonoboh who represents Igueben constituency at the assembly, was removed in August, 2017 over alleged abuse of office, incompetence and was replaced with Kabiru Adjoto.
On calls by traditional rulers from Edo north and central senatorial district for a return of the speakership position to Edo Central, Okonoboh noted that it was their own way, as custodians of the people’s custom and values, of contributing to the development of the constituency.
It will be recalled that traditional rulers led by Otaro of Auchi Ikelebe III, Alhaji Aliru Momoh, had after its meeting, called on the newly elected speaker, Kabiru Adjoto to step down for the position to go back to Edo Central.
