Impeachment: Ekiti Assembly
Writes Chief Judge

Ekiti State House of Assembly has
written to the State Chief Judge. Mr.
Justice Ayodeji Daramola, asking him to
set up a panel to investigate allegations
raised in the impeachment notice to
Governor Ayodele Fayose. At a special
sitting held at Mary Hills Boys High
School, Ado- Ekiti, on Thursday, the
lawmakers said they relied on Section
101 of the 1999 Constitution as
amended which empowers the
Assembly to regulate their sittings,
including sitting in a public building
within the state capital if conditions
exist in the hallowed chamber that
endanger members’ lives.
Majority Leader, Churchill Adedipe,
Irepodun/Ifelodun Constituency One,
explained that the sitting ought to have
taken place in the hallowed chamber
on April 7, 2015 but members were
waylaid by thugs who mounted
roadblock and threatening their lives
with dangerous weapons, thereby
making them to abandon going to the
Assembly. Relying on Section 188 of
the Constitution of the Federal
Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended),
Adedipe moved the motion
empowering the Chief Judge to set up
the panel.
