Osun 2014: FG Plans To Cripple My Government Before August 9 Election – Gov. Aregbesola

Osun State Governor, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola

A group in Osun State has called on National Judicial Council to discipline the judge that called for impeachment of the State Governor, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola.

It will be recalled that Justice Folahanmi Oloyede has written a petition to Osun State House of Assembly, asking the House to impeach Aregbesola for the alleged unpaid workers salaries,

Its amazing, that a serving judge would descend so low to the level of a political spokesperson, seeking for the impeachment of a sitting governor. We are asking the Judicial Council to sanction the judge in order to restore sanity to the Judiciary.

Our Judges are placed in high positions, they were often seen as the mouthpiece of God Almighty, so its discouraging and disappointing, when any judge is found in this kind of mess.

According to the group, all the allegations leveled against governor Aregbesola were without any evidence, and the petition was just meant to damage the good record of Ogbeni’s administration.

We therefore called on the Judiciary to sanction Justice Folahanmi, in order for sanity to be restore back to council.

Nigeria President, President Muhammodu Buhari had met with Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila and other All Progressives Congress (APC) members of the House of Representatives loyal to Gbajabiamila .

During the meeting, the APC members of the House of Representatives urged the President to intervene in the current crisis rocking the National Assembly.

They urge Buhari to talk to the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, to go with the party’s decision on the sharing of the principal offices.

It will be recalled that Yakubu Dogara emerged the Speaker of the House of Representatives on 9th of June, 2015 with 8 votes. This was against the party’s choice of Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila. 174 members of the House loyal and faithful to the party’s directive voted for Femi, while the 39 unfaithful joined hands with the opposition members, voted for Dogara.

Although the party has decided not to punish the 39 members and the Speaker, but they should at least respect the party by following it decision on principal offices.

The group therefore, called on Mr. President to intervene and save the integrity of the Party before its too late.

The meeting was peaceful and successful. Mr. President is a party man who will always uphold party’s supremacy, Femi confirmed….IN DETAILS: Gbajabiamila’s Presentation to President Buhari

It would be recalled that, the governorship candidate of People’s Democratic Party, Jimi Agbaje, and his party have petitioned the victory of Mr. Ambode, asking the tribunal to nullify the his victory.

They argued that, Lagos State governorship election was not conducted under rules and guidelines given by Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.

The Tribunal in it ruling, therefore struck out the petition by Agbaje and his party against Ambode and APC, saying that petition is defective because Agbaje and his party, while seeking for nullification of the election failed to ask and order toe conduct a fresh election.

In addition, if the election is nullified, the people of Lagos State would be left without a leader, turning the state a lawless state.

He however, urge Mr. Agbaje and his party to join hand together with Governor Akinwumi Ambode in order to move the state forward.

Also, Mr. Ambode, while reacting to the tribunal’s verdict, Agbaje and his party were just wasting their time and resources challenging his victory. He them to join hands with him to move the state forward.

Meanwhile, the People’s Democratic Party has promised to would file an appeal against the ruling by the tribunal.
They said the petition died prematurely, without being heard on the merit.

This is coming after the opposition party queried the President’s choice and demanded that her appointment be reversed.

In a report reaching us from the presidency today, there is no going back on that appointment, as it is within the prerogative of the President to make such appointment and not the immediate past INEC chairman who reportedly handed over to a junior officer of Mrs Zakari.

The presidency described the assertion of the opposition party as laughable and imaginary.
