DAILY FILE – The All Progressives Congress,(APC) in Ekiti state has described as prejudice a claim by the opposition People’s Democratic Party,(PDP) that the chairman of the State Independent Electoral Commission,(SIEC) Justice Jide Aladejana was dismissed from the state judiciary.
The APC, in a statement by the Director of Media and Publicity, Elder Sam Oluwalana, explained that from all available records, the case of the Judge is still ongoing in the judiciary.
Elder Oluwalana pointed out that it is high time the jobless members of the opposition be reminded that, judicial process in the country drags for a long period and that any one that looses case at the lower court has the opportunity of approaching a higher court for redress.
According to him, the state Government is anchored on the wheel of true democracy and the rule of law and will never do anything which is unconstitutional, especially in appointing people into the public office.
“Eight of the 16 local councils in the state are still equally under the administration of elected chairmen who are card carrying members of the PDP. These are in a position to brief their party on how Dr Fayemi is handling their councils’ fund rather than dishing out information gathered at beer parlours,” Oluwalana added
“Necessary papers of public office holders, especially political appointees, passed through the due process before such appointments are made public.”
Elder Oluwalana, who also doubles as SSA Media (Party Matters) to the Ekiti State Governor, reminded the opposition PDP, which he described as ignorant and clueless that, it is dabbling into a matter which it knows next to nothing about.
The APC spokesman maintained that as its name implies, the SIEC remains an independent body, adding that the PDP has foreseen its defeat in the forthcoming local governments election and therefore, concorting and fabricating lies to explain its impending loss to their paymasters
“If they have anything against the SIEC members, the courts are there for them to approach and seek redress, rather than making unfounded allegations,” he further stressed.
