The Appeal Court sitting in Benin,Edo State has put aside the stand of Kwale High Court on a position of stay of actions filed by Friday Osanebi,the Deputy Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly, in respect to the genuineness of his parliamentary membership of the state.The court further said that the ability to assent such an application was not in the coffers of the lower court in Kwale.

With the Appeal Court ruling, the Deputy Speaker is to leave his office as the representative of the Ndokwa East Constituency, according to the ruling in the Kwale High Court base on the 2015 House of Assembly election in the local government,the suit case is between Friday Osanebi,Mr. Ozegbe Lawrence and two others.

Osanebi reacted fast,and filed a case in the Supreme Court to review the judgment on stay of execution as passed by the Benin Appeal Court.

Osanebi, in his statement yesterday in Asaba, reported that the court only made correction to a process, and there’s no reason for a psychological State of being tense as he camly awaits the judgment of higher court in the case that was decided earlier in Kwale this year.

Friday Osanebi encourages his constituents and his teeming proponent to remain patient, He added: “I am still the privileged representative of Ndokwa East and Deputy Speaker of the state House of Assembly. The court only corrected a process today (yesterday). Emeka had challenged the competence of the state high court in Kwale in granting a stay of execution filed by our legal team. So, the court in Benin only said no, ‘we are to grant the application.’ That’s all! So, there’s is no cause for alarm.”
