JUDICIARY MUST SAVE EKITI FROM FAYEMI’S ILLEGALITIES – ONI’S AIDE
The judiciary has been urged to live up the people's expectation as
the last hope of the common man by saving Ekiti State from the regime
of illegalities being foisted on Ekiti State by the State Governor,
Dr. Kayode Fayemi.
Wale Ojo-Lanre, Chief Media Aide to former governor of the State,
Chief Olusegun Oni, who reacted to the purported sitting of the 12
Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) lawmakers in the State House of
Assembly today where the illegal dissolution of Local Councils and
list of caretaker committee members were approved said; “What happened
in Ekiti today is a coup perpetrated by shameless politicians of the
ACN fraction in the House of Assembly.”
Ojo-Lanre, who described Fayemi's actions since he assumed office as
an affront on the judiciary, added that; “Last week, a High Court of
competent jurisdiction in Ado-Ekiti told all parties in the suit filed
by the duly elected council officials that status quo must be
maintained and adjourned the case till December 1, 2010.
“It then smacks of great disrespect for Fayemi, a product of due
process of law to be perpetrating these acts that are not only illegal
but also immoral.
“More so that by the State House of Assembly standing rule, the cannot
be a sitting of the House on Monday and by the State Local Government
Administration (Amendment) Law No. 6 of 2001, two-third of the
26-membered House must ratify council dissolution. In this case,
two-third is 18 members of the House.
“With illegalities like these, it is crystal clear now that Fayemi and
his cohorts in the ACN are nothing but political savages and hooligans
who have no respect for the rule of law
“Like what we have said, the ACN is a jankara and bolekaja
government, which will fizzle out quickly because what the ACN members
of the House have done is a rape of democracy and it will not stand.”
