Omini in his motion said “Last week, the House experienced a legislative disruption but we want the best for the State. On that note I move a motion for a vote of confidence on Mr Speaker.” Omini stated.

Earlier, in his opening remarks, the Speaker, Rt Hon Elvert Ayambem reiterated the need for the House to continue working in unity.

“We are all brothers from different walks of life and the long term relationship which we have built cannot be thrown to the wind.

“On the 22nd of may 2024, we had a session which, for the first time, was disrupted. The beautiful thing is that there is no Victor, no vanquished”, Ayambem said.
