The All Progressives Congress (APC), Osun State chapter, has asked Justice Olamide Oloyede to resign her position as a High Court Judge in the state’s judiciary before, “ganging up with the opposition to attempt to destroy the state government” of which she is an integral part.
Justice Oloyede had written the State House of Assembly requesting that impeachment procedures be initiated against Governor Rauf Aregbesola over the financial crisis in the state.
Publicity Secretary of the party in the state, Kunle Oyatomi said: “It is a gross abuse of the privileges of her office for the judge to use the platform of the state’s judiciary to mount open and destructive challenge against the state’s Chief Executive who is her boss in government.
“The ethics of her status in this government prohibits such frontal challenge’, the APC argued but conceded that ‘if the judge is determined to bring down the Aregbesola government, as her petition so clearly indicates, it will be dishonorable of her to remain in government. She is therefore advised to resign immediately so that she will be free to pursue her delight outside the platform of government,” he noted.
