Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose

The Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose has described yesterday’s Supreme Court judgment on the 2015 Abia State governorship election as victory for Governor Okezie Ikpeazu and shame to Justice Okon Abang.

In a statement issued at Ado-Ekiti by his Chief Press Secretary, Idowu Adelusi, he told Ikpeazu that the victory was a call to more dedicated service to the people of Abia State.

“More than ever before, you must continue to make a difference in the lives of your people. You must continue to put a wide gap between your good self and the political charlatans who have now got to their tether’s end.

“The Supreme Court, where they have now failed, is the last bus stop for them. They also failed at the Court of Appeal. It is instructive that the only court where your opponents won was at the High Court of Justice Okon Abang, who has become notorious for ‘jankara’ and ‘Oluwole’ judgments.

Fayose said it was a shame that a man like Abang, who has been roundly lampooned severally by his colleagues and superiors as a disgrace to the Bench, still answers the name of a judge and continues to sit on the Bench.

“He should be kicked out without delay. His peers and superiors have told us times without number that Abang dispenses injustice. His pronouncements, rulings and judgments have variously been described by fellow judges as a travesty of justice. What is such a man still doing on the Bench? he queried.

Fayose added that Abang was no longer fit to be in the judiciary system, adding that, “The Court of Appeal in the Ikpeazu case, apart from laughing Abang to scorn for constituting himself into the state tax board, also described his judgment as a rape of democracy.”
