Don’t Arrest Judgement – PDP Tells Fayose

The Chief Williams Ajayi-led Ekiti State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused Governor Ayodele Fayose of plotting to use the Ado Ekiti Division of the Court of Appeal to arrest a pending judgment at the Ado-Ekiti Division of the Federal High Court.

The Federal High Court in Ado-Ekiti has reserved judgment in the dispute over the Ekiti State PDP Executive for January 23.

In a statement issued yesterday by the State Publicity Secretary, Dayo Owolabi, the party said Fayose wanted to plunge the judiciary into another round of crisis.

They wondered why an appeal was filed against a judgment that is yet to be delivered, hearing notices issued same day the matter was filed and fixed for hearing the next day.

The party said it is further disturbed by “the boastings of Governor Fayose that he had reached out to the justices of the Court of Appeal so as to get them to arrest the yet-to-be delivered judgment of the lower court”.

The party said: “It is in light of the above that we wish to appeal to the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami; the acting Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Hon. Justice Walter Onnoghen; the Honourable President of the Court of Appeal, the Hon. Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa and other well-meaning Nigerians to urgently intervene and stop the judicial ambush being planned by Fayose and the Presiding Judge of the Ekiti Division of the Court of Appeal.”

The party said the “broad day light judicial corruption” should be checked.
