Read the passages below and answer the questions that follow:

Every discernible observer could foresee the crisis which engulfed the Edo House
last week. Only a few days before, reports were rife about the AC reaching out to
some PDP legislators to cross-carpet. The intention being to gain a majority and
then assume the Speakership with the least constraint. Zakawanu Garuba, the then
Speaker, retorted with a fiat, threatening to declare vacant the seat of any defector.
This in spite of the constitutional support for such action, as evidenced, for
example, by the crisis that has torn the PDP apart in Edo State. The party has two
factional chairmen in the state, even though one is more vociferous.
The desperate attempt by Garuba to cling to the Speaker’s chair is condemnable. He
was not being recalled from the legislature; and so, he still has his seat as a floor
member. As speaker, he was only first among equals. The Speakership is not his
birthright. With the defection of one PDP lawmaker to the AC, the legislature
reconvened hours after the bloodbath and elected a protem Speaker, while
impeaching and suspending Garuba and a few others. They are to be probed
