The Move To Impeach Fayose Suffers Setback


The move by the 19 All Progressive Congress (APC) lawmakers in Ekiti State House of Assembly to impeach the state governor,Mr Ayodele Fayose and his Deputy,Dr Kolapo Olubunmi Olusola may have suffered a temporary setback

The lawmakers through the embattled speaker,Hon Adewale Omirin had announced through a letter sent to the Chief Judge of the State last week,Justice Ayodeji Daramola to set up a seven member panel to investigate allegation of gross misconduct against the governor, Mr Fayose and his Deputy

But the move may have suffered a temporary setback,as the state judiciary has claimed ignorance of such a letter

Even ,as there was uneasy calm in Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital on Monday as news filters into town that the apex Court would be delivering judgment tomorrow (Tuesday), in the disputed June 21, 2014 Ekiti gubernatorial election.

Leadership of the two political parties ,PDP and APC are already in Abuja,the Federal Capital Territory in readiness for today’s judgement

However, the Chief Registrar of the state High Court,Barr Olufemi Fayemi told Vanguard in a telephone interview yesterday that he knew nothing about the letter
“I do not know anything about such a letter’

When remanded that being the Chief Registrar of the High Court that he must know all the correspondents of the court with other bodies or arm of government,Mr. Fasanmi said,”From your own observation or comment ,you should be able to draw inference from what l have just said that “I do not know anything about the letter you are talking about”
