According to Vanguard, the Ekiti state Governor, Ayo Fayose, has asked President Buhari to leave the judiciary alone to do their work. This is coming on the heels of a comment by Mr. President where he said:
“On the fight against corruption vis-à-vis the judiciary, Nigerians will be right to say that is my main headache for now.”
“President Buhari should have simply told the whole world that he hated the Nigeria Judiciary because he lost the petitions that he filed against his electoral defeats in 2003, 2007 and 2011, instead of hiding under the fight against corruption to ventilate his anger.”
The Governor also asked Buhari to respect the laid down democratic principles of separation of powers. He also said:
“In recent times, politicians like President Buhari are the ones responsible for the rot in the judiciary because of their desperation to use the courts to foist one party state on Nigerians with conflicting judgments from election tribunals.”
Fayose accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of trying to manipulate the judiciary. He also said the APC convinced people to confess to rigging elections, just to rubbish his victory in the polls.
Apparently, he was referring to allegations of rigging levelled against him by a former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain, Dr. Temitope Aluko, who claimed the Governor rigged the 2014 governorship elections in the state.
