PDP Accuse Ekiti Chief Judge Of Supporting APC

The Peoples Demo­cratic Party (PDP) in Ekiti State has accused the state Chief Judge (CJ), Jus­tice Ayodeji Daramola, of bias, saying the CJ is siding the All Progres­sives Congress (APC) in an attempt to prevent the Governor-elect, Ayodele Fayose, from being sworn into office on October 16.

The PDP said: “The chief judge must face the truth and stop being bias in the interest of the sanctity of the judi­ciary.”

The party, in a release is­sued by the state Publicity Secretary, Pastor Kola Olu­wawole, said the CJ delib­erately amplified what hap­pened in the state High Court, Ado-Ekiti last week Monday and Thursday, blaming it on Fayose and shutting down courts in the state to achieve pre-determined political agenda.

Oluwawole, who said the fracas during court proceed­ings was not new in Nigeria, especially in political cases, cited instances of the election tribunal in Ondo State that was disrupted on March 18, 2013, when supporters of the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) and Labour Party (LP) clashed leaving four persons injured.

He also recalled the Janu­ary 23, 2012 clash between supporters of PDP and ACN at the premises of the gover­norship election petition tri­bunal in Lokoja, Kogi State, during which one person was shot and three others injured.
