Abia House of Assembly has functioned without its 24th member. Aaron Uzodike, who should represent Aba North State Constituency.

It has been alleged that the Assembly has refused to inaugurate Aaron, who won under the PDP platform in the March 2023 election, even after the Court of Appeal in Lagos State declared the lawmaker the winner of the election.

“A political solution would soon be used to resolve the issues that have delayed the swearing in of Hon. Aaron Uzodike to take his seat.

“The delay in his swearing-in is not the fault of the house. A date had been fixed for the Aba North lawmaker to take his oath of office after his victory at the Appeal Court, only for an interlocutory court injunction to be served on the Speaker.

“I could not flout Court injunction, whether it was in order or not,” the Speaker said.

The speaker mentioned that Uzodike exacerbated the situation by going to the Appeal Court in Abuja to file forms 48 and 49, seeking to have him committed to prison for alleged disobedience of a court order.

In his remarks, the Deputy Speaker said that the actions of the House have always been dictated by the desire to deliver the dividends of democracy to the people of Abia.

“We handle our differences behind the scenes because we understand the enormity of the expectations on us,” he said, adding that “once we cross the gate, we see ourselves as one, irrespective of party platforms”.>>>CONTINUE FULL READING HERE
