Bayelsa Speaker, Benson denies stepping down, says ‘I’m still in charge’

Speaker, Bayelsa State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Konbowei Friday Benson has denied stepping down, insisting ‘I’m still in charge’ reports ITRealms.

Hon. Benson on Thursday in Yenagoa dismissed reports that he had since stepped down following the judgment of the Appeal Court in Port Harcourt, insisting that he remains the Speaker of the Assembly and member representing Southern Ijaw Constituency 4.

He also said sufficient proofs‎ exist that the judgement for that day was delivered in his favour.

The lawmaker stated that there was no enrolment order from the court asking him to vacate his seat or for reason of a different thing that was said in the court as has happened, neither was there an order that he should meet the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for a different date of election.

"INEC has not informed me of any notice of enrolment or whatever that they have also received. There is nothing," he said.

Benson described the alleged judgment against him as just a purported claim by a party with the intention to cause confusion.
