The plans by the All Progressives Congress (APC) to impeach the governor of Ekiti state governor Ayodele Fayose suffered another setback by the federal high court sitting in Abuja. The embattled 19 APC lawmakers have made several attempts to impeach Governor Ayo Fayose before the term of lawmakers run out on May 29.
The crisis has virtually brought so much uncertainty to the state and activities in the state house of assembly almost to a halt.
Justice Evoh Chukwu of the federal high court sitting in Abuja ruled to set aside all activities and actions of the embattled speaker, Adewale Omirin since November 2014 to date and this includes the moves to impeach Governor Ayodele Fayose.
In the suit FHC/ABJ/CS/361/15 brought by the factional speaker Dele Olugbemi and six others, the judge granted the plaintiffs leave to serve the defendants through the newspaper advertisements as properly served. The case was adjourned to May 13 as the court also refused to grant the order that the clerk of the state house of assembly should restraint the APC lawmakers further legislative privileges as a result of their continued absence.
‘It is disingenuous to accuse everyone who calls for restructuring as trying to break up the county. History tells us that that kind of cheap blackmail will not work as long as the underlying reasons for the agitations persist.’
‘The biggest challenge seems to be that we seem to be allowing moderate voices on this issue to be drowned out by the reckless utterances of a few rabble rousers on all sides who may be tools in the hands of those who do not wish this country well. These are some of the people who arrogate to themselves the toga of spokespersons of our diverse groups.’
