The Deputy Speaker was seen leaving the hallowed chambers barely 20 minutes into commencement of yesterday’s plenary.

The judgement is coming barely a week after a supreme court judgement reaffirmed the status of Hon. Reuben Izeze as member representing Ughelli South Constituency in the Delta State House of Assembly.

Reacting to the development, Press Secretary to The Deputy Speaker, Comr. Agbanishi Obinne said that there was no cause for alarm.

“We admonish our teeming supporters to remain calm and relaxed, for there is no cause of alarm, because the judgement has since been appealed and the Deputy Speaker is not distracted either . He’s still very focused, making frantic efforts for the empowerment and holistic transformation of our people.” The statement read.
