The Edo House of Assembly has adjourned its plenary session for eight days in honour of the late Dr Samuel Ogbemudia, who died at the age of 84 years.
The Deputy Speaker and Member, representing (Apc-Uhunmwode) Constituency, Mrs Elizabeth Ativie, moved motion for the adjournment under matters of urgent public importance.
It would be recalled that late Samuel Ogbemudia who was once a governor of the old Mid-West Region and later Bendel State, now Edo and Delta died on march 9.
Moving the motion, Ativie said that Ogbemudia had brought unquantifiable development to the defunct Bendel state.
According to her, the Assembly commiserates with his family and the entire people of Edo and Delta.
Other lawmakers took turns to eulogise Ogbemudia for his contributions to the development of the State and Nigeria in general.
