Adeleke cautions against break down of law and order

Published

on

Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke has cautioned against any form of conduct or activities that may be inimical to the peace and progress of the State.

In a statement signed by Olawale Rasheed, the spokesperson of the Governor, Adeleke also directed all security agencies in the State to ensure a strict maintenance of law and order.

The warning is coming on the heels of the ruling of the Federal High Court, Osogbo on Friday which refused an oral application for stay of execution filed by the sacked elected Osun local government officials.

The Osun Government is alleging that the ruling had generated negative reactions from the opposition party and their legal functionaries with alleged incitement to violence.

Recall that on Friday, November 25, 2022, the Federal High Court sitting in Osogbo declared the Osun local government election as illegal.

The Court presided by Justice Ayo Nathaniel Emmanuel, while nullifying the process, directed the elected Chairmen and councillors to vacate their offices.

In line with the judgment, the governor on Monday, November 28, 2022, directed the highest ranking civil servants to take over administration in the local governments, local council development areas and area offices.

The governor on Monday in order to avert a break down of law and order also directed security agencies to move in and maintain the status quo.

The governor also suspended the Chairman of the Osun State Independent Electoral Commission (OSIEC), Segun Oladitan and other members of the OSIEC Board and also the Certificate of Returns already issued to the elected Chairmen and councillors were also withdrawn.

DAILY POST recalls that on August 15, 2022, OSIEC announced that it would be holding local government election in the State.

However, the Osun Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) objected to the election and dragged OSIEC before the Federal High Court.

The party which called for the arrest and prosecution of the OSIEC chairman, maintained that the election was illegal and ran contrary to the Electoral Act, 2022. Meanwhile, the Osun State House of Assembly after the local government election gave OSIEC a pass mark.

Addressing his followers on Instagram, he said Sowore or Obi’s presidency would have done better than Tinubu’s government.According to Freeze: “I supported Omoyele Sowore and I know a lot of youths supported Peter Obi; they probably would have to do the same thing that this government is doing. The only difference is that they would have served as the anaesthesia while this economic surge is going on.

“The youths were more connected to people like Peter Obi and what did they stand to gain from him? They would believe that whatever he is doing is in their best interest.

“The suffering might not have been anyway better, the only thing I believe is that a younger president like Omoyele Sowore or Peter Obi will gain the confidence of Nigerians in Diaspora who want to invest in the country.

“The confidence many youths would have given Peter Obi or Omoyele Sowore is what is lacking in this government.
