An interest group, Ekiti Redemption Group (ERG), has called on the judiciary to revisit the April 14, 2015 judgment, which validated the election of Ekiti State Governor Ayo Fayose.
It called on the Department of State Services (DSS) and the police to arrest all those indicted in the manipulation of the election, which it described as “heinous crime against Ekiti people”.
Speaking yesterday, ERG National Coordinator Morakinyo Ogele called on the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN), to ensure the prosecution of the civilians named in what is now described as “Ekitigate”.
He contended that the military has led the way in sanctioning its officers and men, who colluded with civilians to rig the election, saying the onus now lies with the aggrieved party (APC) to re-present its case in the nation’s highest court, the Supreme Court, in the light of new evidences.
Ogele said the new facts of alleged fraud in the June 21, 2014 governorship poll had not come to light at the time the Supreme Court upheld Fayose’s return in the suit filed by the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The ERG chief praised the former Commissioner for Works and Transportation, Kayode Oso, for resigning from the Fayose administration “instead of framing up the DSS and attacking the integrity of President Muhammadu Buhari”.
