APC-FayoseThe Ekiti State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has chided Governor Ayodele Fayose for appointing Dele Adesina (SAN) as a member of the State Judicial Service Commission (SJSC), saying the action is yet another constitutional breach in his series of illegal acts in the last one year.

The Ekiti APC in a statement yesterday by its Publicity Secretary, Hon. Taiwo Olatunbosun in Ado Ekiti, described Mr. Adesina’s appointment as a violation of the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, which stated that “no person can be appointed into the Judicial Service Commission twice”.

“Adesina was first appointed as a member of the Judicial Service Commission by Governor Kayode Fayemi in 2012, and against the law, he was again appointed by Governor Fayose as the Chairman of the commission in 2015”, he explained.

Citing the relevant section of the constitution to buttress his objection, Mr. Olatunbosun said: “By the provision of Section 200(3) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, no person can be appointed to State Civil Service Commission, Judicial Service Commission or State Independent Electoral Commission twice.

“Barrister Adesina (SAN) was appointed by Fayemi to serve in Ekiti Judicial Service Commission, now Fayose has re-appointed him to the same office.

“This is illegal and unconstitutional. This provision of the law is an offshoot of Sections 197,198 and 199 of Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria”.
