LP member sues Akeredolu over alleged indictment
OCTOBER 17, 2012 BY SUNDAY ABORISADE 108
A member of the̶̲̥̅̊ Labour Party in Ondo State,Mr. Bode Betiku, has sued the̶̲̥̅̊ Action Congress ơ̴̴̴͡f Nigeria’s candidate for the Saturday governorship election in the state, Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu, over alleged indictment by Justice Fawehinmi Judicial Common of Inquiry. Betiku i§ challenging Akeredolu’s alleged non-disclosure ơ̴̴̴͡f the facts of the indictment to the Independent National Electoral Commission. The plaintiff on Tuesday obtained the endorsement of the̶̲̥̅̊ court to serve the originating summons on Akeredolu. Although, no date has been fixed for the hearing, the two defendants are expected to enter appearances within eight days.
In a 16-page affidavit deposed to by himself, Betiku alleged
that the Ondo State Government set up a Judicial Commission of Inquiry headed by Justice Rasheed Fawehinmi (retd).
It explained that other members of the public are Mr. Kunle
Adedipe, Mr. Dele Awopetu, Mr. E. O Komolafe, Mr. O. O
Akinduro and Mr. Toyin Akinkuotu as Secretary.
He averred that the report of the Commission of Inquiry was
accepted by the Ondo State Executive Council headed by the̶̲̥̅̊ late Governor Adebayo Adefarati.
The Plaintiff further claimed that “the 1st respondent, Mr.
Akeredolu refused to disclose the fact of indictment in his
INEC form. He urged the court to “determine whether the 1st defendant did not violate the provision of section 31 subsections 2, 5 a̶̲̥̅̊₪d̶̲̥̅̊ 6 0f the Electoral Act 2010 as Amended, when he failed τ̅☺ disclose the fact of his indictment.”
The plaintiff further claimed that “Akeredolu falsely
represented fact when he claimed that he was never indicted
for embezzlement or fraud by a judicial commission of
inquiry, when indeed he was so indicted.”
The plaintiff further prayed the court to determine the claim
by the 1st defendant “that the indictment was never accepted
by Ondo State government and has not by such false
representation violated the provisions of section 31 (5) and (6) of the Act. In the affidavit, the plaintiff claimed that, “having been indicted for embezzlement a̶̲̥̅̊₪d̶̲̥̅̊ misappropriation by the̶̲̥̅̊ Commission of Inquiry, and which indictment was accepted by Ondo State Government, is therefore not qualified to run as candidate into the exalted office of governor of the state in the̶̲̥̅̊ October 20 election or any other subsequent election.
