Ekiti Assembly member-elect demands swearing-in


Ekiti State House of Assembly member-elect Toyin Obayemi (Ado Ekiti 1) has called on Governor Ayo Fayose toprevail on the Speaker, Kola Oluwawole, to obey court order and swear him.

Obayemi, in a letter to the governor made available to reporters in Ado Ekiti yesterday, regretted that members of his party, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), have been obstructinghis inauguration.

The Federal High Court, Ado Ekiti, on July 4, removed Musa Arogundade, who represents the constituency, and ordered Obayemi sworn in, having found Obayemi to be the valid candidate for the April 11, 2015, House of Assembly election.

Obayemi, in the letter copied to the Ewi of Ado-Ekiti, Oba Adeyemo Adejugbe, and eminent lawyer Chief Afe Babalola (SAN), said the refusal of the PDP-dominated Assembly to admit him as a member after a court order, “is portraying the party in bad light”.
