The Osun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has called on Justice Olamide Oloyede to toe the honourable path by first, resigning her position as a High Court Judge in the state’s judiciary before, “ganging up with the opposition to attempt to destroy the state government” of which she is an integral part.
The ruling party made this call on Sunday in response to a petition the judge forwarded to the State House of Assembly, demanding the impeachment of the governor of the state, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, and his deputy, Iya Afin Titi Laoye Tomori, over the backlog of salaries of the state workers and pensions.
Publicity Secretary of the APC in the state, Kunle Oyatomi said: “It is a gross abuse of the privileges of her office for the judge to use the platform of the state’s judiciary to mount open and destructive challenge against the state’s Chief Executive who is her boss in government.
“The ethics of her status in this government prohibits such frontal challenge’, the APC argued but conceded that ‘if the judge is determined to bring down the Aregbesola government, as her petition so clearly indicates, it will be dishonorable of her to remain in government. She is therefore advised to resign immediately so that she will be free to pursue her delight outside the platform of government,” he noted.
