Gov. Ayo Fayose Withdraws Suit Against APC Lawmakers


Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, yesterday withdrew the suit seeking to stop the 19 All Progressives Congress (APC) members of the state House of House from impeaching him and his Deputy, Kolapo Olusola.

In the suit, which was struck out by Justice Ahmed Moham­med, the plaintiffs, including speaker of the House of As­sembly (described as being oc­cupied by the Peoples Demo­cratic Party (PDP) factional Speaker, Olugbemi Joseph Dele); Ekiti State House of Assembly, Fayose and Olusola through their counsel, Ahmed Raji (SAN), had approached the court seeking to stop im­peachment moves against the governor.

When the matter was called for hearing yesterday, counsel to the plaintiffs, Raji, informed the court of his client’s inten­tion to withdraw the case. The plaintiff’s counsel did not give reasons for the with­drawal, but Daily Sun gathered it was to allow them prosecute a fresh suit pending before an­other court presided over by Justice Evoh Chukwu.
