Mr. John Maiyaki, former assistant to Edo state governor Godwin Obaseki, took the governor and his deputy, Phillip Shuaibu, to the Conduct of Conduct Bureau (CCB).
He accused them of misconduct and abuse of office by issuing a proclamation for the inauguration of the Assembly Chamber, which excluded some members.
Maiyaki also wants CCB to investigate the Secretary of State Government (SSG), Osatodion Ogie, for alleged violation of articles 1 and 9 of part 1 of the fifth program of the 1999 Constitution, as amended.
In a petition filed at the CCB, Maiyaki stated that the governor, his deputy and the SSG jointly abused his office by illegally excluding 14 elected members of the Assembly from participation in their first session on June 17th.
According to him, the governor secretly issued a proclamation without warning to 14 elected legislators and to the public, an act detrimental to the rights of any other person who knew that this act was illegal and contrary to government policy.
Maiyaki also said that the governor and others had abused his job “by participating in an arbitrary act of illegal refusal to comply with the resolutions of the National Assembly ordering the Edo State governor to issue a valid proclamation for the first session EDHA in accordance with the provisions of Section 105 (3) of the 1999 Constitution. ”
He asked the CCB to prosecute the governor, his deputy and secretary for violating paragraphs 1 and 9 of the Code of Conduct applicable to public officials and to apply the sanction required under paragraph 18 (2).
