Ex-Edo Speaker Looks Ordinary Out Of Office

In the days of yore, the immediate past speaker of the Edo State House of Assembly, Uyi Igbe,  was an item in all circles in the acclaimed heartbeat state.  Like all mortals his sight was set on a bigger pie.  Thus he opted out of the state assembly and his position as the number 3 man in the hierarchy of governance in the state.  His plan to become a member of the house of representatives was botched as he lost the Oredo federal constituency seat to Omoregie Ogbeide-Ihama of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) during the election held on Saturday,  March 28th,  2015.

With the change in position came a complete change in fortunes.  Now Uyi, unlike before when he moves in a convoy of at least three cars with aides falling over themselves to attend to his needs, now moves about driving himself around town with nobody to open and shut the car door for him.
