PostSubject: Anxiety as Supreme Court decides Fayose’s fate today   2015-04-14, 06:36

There was anxiety in Ekiti State as
the Supreme Court in Abuja
prepared to deliver judgment on
Tuesday (today) in the appeal filed
by the All Progressives Congress
against the victory of Governor
Ayodele Fayose in the June 21, 2014
governorship election.
Fayose, in a state-wide broadcast
on Monday, asked residents to
maintain the peace and go about
their lawful duties.
The governor, who thanked the
people for voting overwhelmingly
for all the Peoples Democratic
Party’s candidates in the Saturday
House of Assembly elections, said
the victory had confirmed that he
had a genuine mandate of the
people.
He said that he was sure that he
would be vindicated at the end of
the day and triumph over whatever
plot being hatched to truncate his
tenure.
A commercial driver, Ade Bamidele,
expressed confidence that the
governor would win the case.
A trader, Esther Orji, said the Ekiti
people required peace, saying the
judgment would remove the
tension associated with the
election.
The Ekiti Governorship Election
Petitions Tribunal had on
December 19, 2014 upheld Fayose’s
victory and dismissed the APC
petition for lack of merit.
Dissatisfied, the APC had gone to
the appellate court on the grounds
that Fayose was not qualified to
stand for the election as a
candidate because of his
impeachment on October 16, 2006
during his first tenure as governor.
The APC also alleged that the
governor forged his academic
certificates and violated the Code
of Conduct rules.
The five- member panel, chaired by
Justice Abdul Aboki, in its judgment
on February 16 had upheld the
judgment of the Tribunal, which
affirmed Fayose as the winner of
the June 21, 2014 poll.
Though the Justice Abdul Aboki-led
five-man panel dismissed the
appeal filed by the APC, it found
merit in the appellant’s complaints
that the military was used to harass
and intimidate its supporters and
leaders during the polls.
Dissatisfied still, the APC had gone
to the Supreme Court.
The Independent National Electoral
Commission had declared that
Fayose polled 203,090 votes to
defeat the then incumbent
governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, of the
All Progressives Congress, who
polled 120,433 votes in the
election
