The Edo State House of Assembly has lifted the suspension of its former Speaker, Dr. Justin Okonoboh, and Majority Leader, Mr. Foly Ogedengbe. 
 
The resolution followed the recommendations of an ad hoc committee which had the new Deputy Speaker, Mr. Victor Edoro, as Chairman. 
 
It, however, said that the suspension of the former Deputy Speaker, Mrs. Elizabeth Ativie, and the member representing Esan North-east II, Mr. Magnus-Desmond Ezehi, would remain until they showed a sign of cooperation with the committee. 

Meanwhile, the National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) said it has not zoned the Anambra governorship ticket to any part of the state as being speculated.
 
APC National Publicity Secretary, Bolaji Abdullahi added that the party was committed to providing equal opportunity to all aspirants.
 
The APC spokesman stressed that all aspirants cleared to contest in the coming primaries should ignore the misleading report.
