Deputy governor of Ondo State, Alhaji Ali Olanusi on Sunday said he had forgiven his former boss, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko and and the state lawmakers who he alleged to have masterminded his impeachment then.
Olanusi who spoke with journalists in Akure, the state capital on the appeal court judgment on Friday, Olanusi said his vindication by the appellate court was not by his cleverness, but an act of God.
He said, “There is no cause for revenge, if God did not want all these to happen, it would not have turned out this way.
“The injustice has been exposed to the people of Ondo State and may God reward all accordingly.’’
Olanusi was impeached by the state House of Assembly in 2015 for alleged gross misconduct but had his impeachment nullified by the Court of Appeal sitting in Akure, the state capital on Friday.
He had earlier challenged his impeachment at the Federal High Court, Lagos claiming that the lawmakers did not follow due process before taking the action against him but the court dismissed the suit for lack of jurisdiction.
The former deputy governor defected to the All Progressives Congress from the Peoples Democratic Party shortly before the presidential election in 2015.
He was few weeks after impeached by the state Assembly and replaced by Alhaji Lasisi Oluboyo who completed the second term of the Mimiko’s administration.
