Twelve members of the Edo state house of Assembly loyal to the All Progressives Congress, APC have been sworn-in on Wednesday at an undisclosed location in Edo state.

It will be recalled that the Governor of the State, Godwin Obaseki ordered a ‘renovation’ of the Edo state house of assembly on Wednesday afternoon in order to quell an alleged plot to impeach him.

For several months now, Obaseki has actively worked to prevent the inauguration of the lawmakers in order to maintain ‘control’ over the assembly.

Following a fallout with his predecessor, Adams Oshiomole, Obaseki ensured that the lawmakers were not inaugurated in order to prevent Oshiomhole’s loyalists from taking control of the state legislature.

Below are photographs from the swearing-in ceremony.
