The All Progressives Congress, APC, has reacted to the Wednesday’s judgement by the Court of Appeal sacking Dayo Adeyeye, the Senator representing Ekiti South Senatorial District.
In a statement on Wednesday, the Ekiti State Chapter of the APC rejected the judgement, saying: “The judgement delivered earlier today can best be described as a travesty of Justice and robbing Peter to pay Paul.”
The Ekiti APC’s Director of Media and Publicity, Sam Oluwalana, said the verdict it did not reflect the wishes of people of the Ekiti South Senatorial district.
He, however, commended the Senator for his exemplary leadership style during his short stay at the upper legislative chamber.
“We commend Prince Dayo Adeyeye, who was highly-reverred by his colleagues in the Upper Chambers, for the exemplary leadership, which he exhibited within the short period he spent in the Senate.
“We are proud of his achievements during the period, as he was able to manage information outflow, without any scandal in the House”.
He, however, appealed to the people to go about their normal businesses rather than taking the laws into their hands over the judgement.
“We advise our supporters in the state not to be swayed by the judgement, but to rather remain steadfast with the state government, in its quest to make things better for the people of the state”, the statement added.
