Ondo Guber Faceoff: Akeredolu Will Soon Be Removed From Office – Abraham

Ondo governorship, Rotimi Akeredolu, Olusegun Akeredolu, News, News, Ondo State,
Olusegun Abraham, the first runner-up in the September 2016, governorship primary of the All Progressives Congress in Ondo State, has expressed hope that Governor Rotimi Akeredolu would soon be removed from office.

Abraham was reacting to the appellate court’s ruling, which on Monday struck out the application for stay of court proceedings filed by the governor with regards to the APC primary in 2016.

Akeredolu won the primary and later became the governor of the state after winning the governorship election on November 20, 2016.

Abraham had approached a Federal High Court in Abuja to challenge the election of Akeredolu as the candidate of the APC in the last governorship election.

The court, however, adjourned the suit filed by Abraham indefinitely to await the decision of the Court of Appeal on the fundamental issue of service and of stay of proceedings.

Reacting to the appeal court’s verdict in a statement issued in Akure, Abraham described the ruling as a “quit notice” to the governor and his supporters, saying the ruling was a clear indication that democracy was being strengthened and becoming more people-oriented.

In the statement signed by the Director General of Abraham Support Group, Mr. Kunle Davies, the APC governorship aspirant added that the ruling was a victory for all members of the APC locally and in the Diaspora.

“The events leading to the 2015 Ondo State APC primary is still fresh in our memories.

“The unilateral act of our party national chairman to submit the name of Mr. Rotimi Akeredolu as the candidate of the party contrary to the decision of the party’s Appeal Committee and the National Working Committee is also fresh in our memories.

“This is a quit notice to Mr. Akeredolu and his members to vacate the state house that was acquired illegally”, he said.
