The Edo State House of Assembly has been shut down for 14 days for fumigation of the Assembly complex.
In a statement, Acting Director, Administration and Supplies, Stephen U. Guobadia, on behalf of the Clerk of the House, said the leadership of the House has directed all management staff of the House to remain at home for 14 days until after the exercise.
The move follows the controversies that have shadowed the politics in the state that were fueled by the storm that shadowed the inauguration of the House of Assembly in June 2019 when majority of the members-elect were shut out during the inauguration of the legislative house.
The clerk in his statement said: “I am directed to inform all staff of Edo State House of Assembly that the Leadership of the House has instructed that all Management Staff remain at home for 14 days from Tuesday, 16th June, 2020.
“This is as a result of the fumigation exercise to be carried out in the Assembly Complex at three (3) different times.
“All Management Staff are advised to leave their phones open in case of further information.”
