By Sylvanus Okpe

Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State has lamented Thursday’s Court of Appeal ruling which ousted Senate Spokesperson, Senator Dayo Adeyeye from the Senate.

The Governor also congratulated Senator Abiodun Olujimi over her victory at the Court of Appeal.

Fayemi, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Yinka Oyebode, urged the senator-elect to be magnanimous in victory and ensure that Ekiti interest is paramount in her agenda at the Senate.

The Appellate Court sitting in Kaduna had on Wednesday in a three-man panel led by Justice Uzor Anyanwu nullified the election of the senator representing Ekiti South, Prince Dayo Adeyeye.

The court upheld the judgment of the tribunal and ordered INEC to issue a fresh Certificate of Return to Mrs. Olujimi.

Governor Fayemi described the sack of the former Senate spokesman as shocking, saying the more painful was the fact that the ruling of the Appellate Court that sat in Kaduna remained final in the matter.

He, therefore, urged Senator Adeyeye to remain calm despite the judicial pronouncement, saying that the ruling, though shocking and unexpected, is not the end of his political career or his public service.
He described Senator Adeyeye as a dogged fighter and a politician of repute who is loved by his people.

Dr. Fayemi said he was convinced that the former Senate spokesman would bounce back and play more significant roles in the nation’s politics.

He said the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the senator campaigned vigorously during the last election and got the endorsement of the people of the district, adding that that made the Court of Appeal’s ruling quite disturbing.

“As we continue to deepen our democratic culture, we cannot but witness occasional setbacks of this nature. It is part of the sacrifice for our nation building.
