Politics Ekiti guber: Court refuses to stop Fayose from contesting - The Sun



Efforts to stop former governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, from contesting the governorship election on Saturday suffered a setback yesterday as an Ado-Ekiti High Court on Monday adjourned the case till June 30, a week after the election would have been held.

A socio-political group, known as E-11, which has the likes of Governor Kayode Fayemi predecessor, Chief Segun Oni and Senator Babafemi Ojudu as its members, along with the Citizen Party, had sued Fayose over his alleged ineligibility to contest the election.

Among others, the claimants are asking the court to determine whether Fayose was qualified to contest by virtue of his impeachment in 2006 and whether he was right to have allegedly given certain false information to Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) about his state of integrity. Both the INEC and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) were joined in the suit.
