APC faults Fayose for appointing Adesina member of state Judicial Council

The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State has blasted Governor Ayodele Fayose for appointing Mr. Dele Adesina (SAN) as a member of the State Judicial Service Commission (SJSC).
The party described the action as yet another
constitutional breach by the governor.

The party’s state Publicity Secretary, Hon. Taiwo Olatunbosun, in a statement yesterday in Ado Ekiti said that Adesina’s appointment was a violation of the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, which stated that “no person can be appointed into the Judicial Service Commission twice.”

“Adesina was first appointed as a member of the Judicial Service Commission by Governor Kayode Fayemi in 2012, and against the law, he was again appointed by Governor Fayose as the Chairman of the commission in 2015,” he explained.

Citing the relevant section of the constitution to buttress his objection, he said: “By the provision of Section 200(3) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, no person can be appointed to State Civil Service Commission, Judicial Service Commission or State Independent Electoral Commission twice.

“Barrister Adesina (SAN) was appointed by Fayemi to serve in Ekiti Judicial Service Commission, now Fayose has re-appointed him to the same office.

“This is illegal and unconstitutional. This provision of the law is an offshoot of Sections 197,198 and 199 of Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
