APC Sues Fayose Over Composition Of SIEC- Punch by Nobody: 6:45am On Oct 02, 2015
The All Progressives
Congress in Ekiti State has sued Governor Ayodele Fayose and the State Independent Electoral Commission over the composition of the electoral body.


The party alleged that
members of the electoral body constituted by the
governor wre card-carrying members of the People’s Democratic Party, so could not conduct a free and fair
election.


In a suit filed by its counsel, Abiodun Fasakin and Tajudeen Akingbolu, the party said the composition of
the electoral body
contradicted the
constitutional requirement for a non-partisan electoral body.


According to a statement by the state Publicity Secretary of APC, Taiwo Olatubosun, the party, which indicated its readiness to participate in the forthcoming December 19 local government elections, maintained that due process must be followed in the composition of the SIEC.


“The APC is not comfortable with membership of the
commission, most of who, apart from being PDP card- carrying members, are friends and business associates of Governor
Ayodele Fayose,”
Olatunbosun noted.


Listed as PDP members by the APC are the SIEC
Chairman, Justice Kayode Bamisile (retd.), Olufunke Adeyera, Ganiyu Bello, Mojisola Bankole, Rufus Olaiya and Olajide Adeyeye.


The defendants include the Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice and the House of Assembly.


The APC asked the court to declare that the appointment of the fifth to 10th defendants as Chairman and / or members of the third
defendant as null, void,
illegal and unconstitutional as
it violates the provisions of Sections 197, 199 (1) (c) and
200 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended).


It also asked for a
declaration that the third defendant (EKSIEC), as presently constituted by the
first defendant (Fayose), with the 5th to 10th defendants as Chairman and members, is not vested with legal capacity to conduct elections into the various elective offices/positions in
the 16 local government
areas in Ekiti State.


It also sought for a
declaration that the tenure of the hitherto members of the
third defendant as
constituted in 2011 having not expired, their dissolution by the 1st defendant (Fayose) coupled with the
appointment of the fifth to 10th defendants is “null,
void and unconstitutional.”


APC thereby sought an order setting aside all steps and/ or actions taken by the 1st, 2nd and 4th defendants in
the purported appointment and/or confirmation of the
appointment of the 5th to 10th defendants.

The APC should stop their flimsy excuses and strategize. I've never seen a party that loves foul cry than the APC. If they have proofs they should come out and do so. And if they don't, they should hold their peace and look forward to the election.

On a second thought, I wouldn't trust Fayose as well with the Ekiti Gate scandal still fresh at heart.

Fools, when a certain Bubu does it, they proclaim that he is '' a new sheriff in town'' but when fayose does it they start complaining. Guess Fayose is the sheriff in Ekiti state, so live with it.

APC is now doing the same thing PDP did during the regime of Fayemi when PDP used the court process to frustrate all attempt to conduct the local government election. Like they say, what goes around comes around. PDP should be ready for a frustrating legal battle.
