Migori governor Okoth Obado's importance has finally been acknowledged with Members of County Assembly from his county saying that his input will be needed on Tuesday next week.
This will be the day when the County Assembly will be discussing the BBI bill, co-founded by ODM leader Raila Odinga, with whom Obado, an ODM governor, is not in good terms with.
MCAs want the governor to be present when the bill will he debated, saying that his presence will motivate them to pass it and boost chances of its success.
This follows confirmations that majority of MCAs are in support of the bill, including those from the Kuria side of the county, who were initially rumoured to be planning to reject it.
“We, as MCAs from Kuria, have embraced BBI and we will ensure it is passed. None of us is planning to reject the Bill,” Isebania MCA Elias Nyahure told The Standard newspaper.
Boniface Oremo of East Kanyamkago called for unity at this moment, stressing on the need for all county leaders to join hands on the BBI issue.
The request that he attends the sitting comes only days after he was removed from the podium and told to seat in the crowd during an event hosted by Raila at the Ciala Resort in Kisumu earlier in the month.
Interestingly, the event was all about popularizing the very same BBI, which the MCAs, majority of whom are allied to the ODM party, want him to help with.
Raila has repeatedly been seen wanting nothing to do with the governor, who is rumoured to be secretly working with Deputy President William Ruto.
