Group Appeals To NJC Over Fayose’s Impeachment Plot

The Ekiti Justice Group (EJG), an association of elite of Ekiti State origin, has written to the National Judicial Council (NJC) over the letter purportedly written by some All Progressives Congress (APC)
lawmakers, directing the Chief Judge of Ekiti State, Justice Ayodeji Daramola, to constitute a panel to investigate impeachable offences against the state Governor, Ayodele Fayose, and his Deputy, Dr. Olusola Eleka.
The group, on Thursday, April 16, 2015, described the action of the former Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Dr. Adewale Omirin, as bizarre, ignoble, and unlawful, while calling on the CJN to prevail on Justice
Daramola not to allow his office and personality to be dragged unduly into any illegality and the murky waters of politics.

EJG said in the letter signed by its National Co-ordinator, Gbenga Babawibe, and addressed to the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Mahmud Mohammed, who is the chairman of NJC that “Omirin is still contesting the legality or otherwise of his impeachment in Suit Nos FHC/ABJ/CS/885/2014 and FHC/L/CS/1823/2014, respectively, and a decision is yet to be delivered on same. It is elementary that once an Action is subjudice, a Party to the Suit is not expected to take any action capable of overreaching any decision the Court of Law may make in relation to such a Suit.”
