Mr. Bipi is the leader of the five lawmakers reportedly opposed to Governor Rotimi Amaechi.
The other 27 pro-Amaechi lawmakers, who opposed his alleged election on July 9 2013, described the process that threw him up as “unconstitutional.”
The National Assembly also announced the taking over the functions of the State House of Assembly.
However, the factional leader, who spoke on Saturday at the inauguration of Grassroots Development Initiative executives in Obio/Akpor Local Government of the state, said the key to the state House of Assembly was with him.
Bipi said, “The former Speaker was duly impeached and if they think they are not comfortable with the current development, they should go to court.
“The key to the House of Assembly is in my hands and the House will soon reconvene.”
The Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Mr. Otelemaba Amachree, also said he was still in charge.
Amachree, who spoke through his Press Secretary, Mr. Jim Okpiki, explained that it was wrong for Bipi to say that he (Bipi) was holding the key to the House of Assembly.
