AC Tackles Oni over Trips to Brazil, SAfrica   Back To Top

From: This Day      Published on: Monday, September 14, 2009

From Toba Suleiman in Ado-Ekiti

Ekiti State chapter of the Action Congress (AC) has described recent overseas trip of the state Governor, Segun Oni, to Brazil and South Africa as a needless journey embarked upon to further avoid payment of three months salaries of the state's civil servants.
A statement issued by the Director of Communication, Dr Kayode Fayemi Campaign Organisation, Mr Yemi Adaramodu, described the trip as a questionable exercise, adding that it was actually a time buying venture to steer away public attention from the strings of failures which had dogged the regime since inception.
According to the statement, copies of which were made available to newsmen in Ado-Ekiti, weekend, the needless journey to the wonderlands was a provocative disdain for the plight of the state workers who daily lay on their beds with empty stomachs as a result of unpaid salaries and entitlements."

Adaramodu lamented that a huge population of the states teachers and civil servants were groaning under the yoke of deprivation, and expressed regrets that majority of them who are Muslims were daily observing the Ramadan fasting with no food to keep them steady for their spiritual obligation, while the states treasury became a cash centre for aimless foreign jamborees.
It is only a regime whose priority is profligacy that would harbour infrastructural decay and search around the world for elusive investors when it is supposed to be the other way round.
The huge sums allocated to the recent global navigation without compass could have been expended on improving the state social index to nurture the state into a global attraction, the statement further noted.
However, in his immediate reaction, Oni said the trips were in the best interest of the people of the state, assuring that the people of the state in particular and Nigerians in general would reap bountifully from the multi-million dollar biofuel and ethanol projects plants, which are being executed in the state.

Special Assistant to the governor on Media, Mr. Lere Olayinka, said in a statement issued in Ado Ekiti, that Governor Oni, who gave this assurance at the Murtala Mohammed International Airport on his arrival from a two weeks investment trip to Brazil and South -Africa said: the trip has enabled us to cross all the t(s) and dot all the i(s) of the biofuel and ethanol projects.According to the statement, Oni revealed that the working tour was very rewarding as his delegate was able to see and understand the import of the two industries in the state.He pointed out that from the construction to the production stage, the industries will not only attract more people to Ekiti state but will rescue many of its people from jungle of unemployment.

Taps 'll soon run in Ekiti   Back To Top

From: Nigerian Compass      Published on: Monday, September 14, 2009

Remi Koleoso, Ado-Ekiti

END appears to be in sight for the problems of water consumption experienced by the people of Ekiti State. The new Commissioner for Public Utilities, Mr. Dapo Agbede, disclosed that the expansion of Ado-Ekiti water supply scheme, in the state capital, embarked upon by the Governor Segun Oni-led administration, has been completed and ready for inauguration.

Agbede, who was on familiarisation tour of ministries and parastatals under his ministry, challenged the management of the State Water Corporation to ensure that all the dams in the state start functioning within the next two weeks, adding that the on-going construction of five water treatment plants are already at different levels of completion.

Speaking at the headquarters of the corporation in Ado-Ekiti, the commissioner said the five water plants were located at Efon-Alaaye in Efon Local Government Area, Ipole Iloro, Erijinyan, Okemesi and Ido-Ile in Ekiti West council areas of the state.

He stressed the need for the management and workers of the corporation to join hands with his administration to ensure that the needed requirements of the people are met.

His words: We are just political office holders, but as technocrats who have been on the job for a long time, you should all be familiar with the problems of the corporation and as well be able to proffer solution or suggestions for us on how to tackle them and therefore, meet the yearnings of our people.

We need to join hands to ensure that our taps run and also water flow in every home for the people to drink, there can be differences, but all we need is to work together for the common interest of the people of the state.

Let us sit down together and brainstorm on the problems confronting the actualisation of water in our state, be open in your dealings and familiarise yourselves with the facts on the ground, so that, together we shall succeed.

Ekiti Tribunal dismisses Onis objection to Fayemis application   Back To Top

From: The Nation      Published on: Monday, September 14, 2009

By Odunayo Ogunmola

The Election Petitions Tribunal hearing the dispute over the April 25 governorship rerun election in Ekiti State has dismissed the objection by Governor Segun Oni and five other respondents to an application filed by Action Congress (AC) candidate Dr. Kayode Fayemi seeking an extension of time to file additional witness statements on oath.

Other respondents who opposed Fayemis application were the second Respondent, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the third Respondent, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the fourth Respondent, Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC),the fifth and sixth Respondents, the Returning Officers for Ido/Osi and Ijero local government areas, the Police and the Inspector-General, the seventh and eighth Respondents.

Also thrown out by the tribunal was another objection by the respondents to the admissibility of the deposition of a subpoenaed witness, Mr. Busuyi Adesokan, who is billed to testify before it and tender a video clip of the attack on two reporters at the Ado-Ekiti Government House on the eve of the rerun poll.

Tribunal Chairman Mr. Justice Hamma Barka, who delivered the ruling, held that there was nothing that precludes the five-man jury from allowing a witness that would assist the tribunal to arrive at justice to all parties.

While granting Fayemis application and overruling the objections of all respondents, Justice Barka pointed out that the counsel to the respondents hinged their objections on the content of the statement on oath as against the application by the petitioner.

The tribunal boss held that given the averments in the affidavit in support of the application, the petitioner had given sufficient reason for bringing the application.

The AC flagbearer, Fayemi, who is aggrieved by the outcome of the supplementary election, is challenging the declaration of Oni who ran on the platform of the PDP as governor by INEC on May 5 on the strength of results in six wards in the two local government areas of Ido/Osi and Ijero.

Fayemis counsel, Mr. Yusuf Ali (SAN), sought the leave of the tribunal to file additional statement on oath with two attachments marked Exhibits DKF1 and DKF2

Ali had sought the leave of the tribunal to file additional statement on oath and another order that the statement on oath was duly filed and served on all respondents having satisfied the necessary conditions.

He predicated the application on the grounds that Fayemi, who is the first petitioner, could give evidence on the outcome of the examination of the INEC electoral documents and attach same with his statement on oath in his petition since the documents were made available to him after he had filed his petition.

Ali said the interest of justice would be served if the first petitioner is allowed to give evidence on the findings by his legal team on the electoral materials used for the conduct of the rerun.

But, Onis counsel, Mr. Adebayo Adenipekun (SAN), said the petitioner failed to file the statement on oath alongside the main petition, describing the bid as "looking for another excuse to do what he had failed to do initially".

Adenipekun drew the attention of the tribunal to paragraphs 94 and 95 of the petition where he pointed out that the electoral documents the petitioner claimed were not made available to him were actually in his possession.

He said granting the application would open "a floodgate of frivolous applications before the tribunal".

He also argued that the petitioner violated the provisions of the Tribunal Practice Direction by not filing the application on time.

Counsel to the second-eighth respondents, Mr. Obafemi Adewale, Mr. Roland Otaru (SAN), Mr. Nathaniel Oke (SAN) and Mr. Sebastian Ozoana aligned with Adenipekun in opposing the application.

But Ali said his client had deposed in the original written statement on oath that the election held in Ipoti Wards A and B were fraught with massive irregularities.

He noted that the AC candidate did not have the benefit of examining the electoral materials used for election in the two wards at the time of filing the petition.

The silk insisted that having been obliged the documents by INEC after Fayemi filed the petition, it was incumbent on him to avail the court of his findings.

It was discovered during the examination of the documents that it was only in four out of 20 units in the two wards that that the number of accredited voters was in consonance with the number of the ballot papers used for the election.

The Petitioner discovered that in the remaining 16 units, the number of those accredited to vote was either higher or lower than the number of used ballot papers, hence the need to testify before the tribunal.

The tribunal also overruled the objections of the lawyers to all the respondents in respect of the tendering of the deposition of Adesokan, the Petitioner Witness 38 (PW 38), an apprentice video cameraman who filmed the attack on reporters within the precincts of the Government House by suspected PDP stalwarts and thugs.

But the tribunal is expected to deliver a ruling on Wednesday over the respondents objection to the admissibility of the Video Compact Disc (VCD) the witness is seeking to tender as an exhibit before the tribunal.

Another video evidence causes ripples at Ekiti tribunal   Back To Top

From: The Nation      Published on: Saturday, September 12, 2009

By Odunayo Ogunmola Published Today News Rating: Unrated
A bid to tender the video tape of an alleged attack on journalists at the Ado-Ekiti Government House shortly before the conduct of the April 25 gubernatorial rerun election sparked a sharp disagreement among lawyers to parties at the State Election Petitions Tribunal.

The drama occurred at the Fridays proceedings of the tribunal where an Action Congress (AC) witness, Mr. Busuyi Adesokan, an apprentice video camaerman, attempted to tender the video tape in support of his evidence before the five-man panel judges led by Justice Hamma Barka.

It was the continuation of the hearing of the petition filed by the AC candidate, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, who is challenging the declaration Governor Segun Oni of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as the winner of the poll by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Also at Fridays proceedings, a University of Ado-Ekiti (UNAD) Political Science lecturer, Dr. Azeez Olaniyan, underwent cross-examination from lawyers to all respondents after the tribunal had overruled Adewales objection to Olaniyans appearance.

Olaniyan was before the tribunal to give evidence over the assault on him and other election observers in Ifaki-Ekiti, Onis hometown on April 25 during the rerun election.

Fayemis counsel, Chief Anthony Adeniyi, had earlier led the witness who was subpoenaed on the order of the tribunal in his examination-in-chief directed the witness to produce the video evidence in aid of his testimony before the tribunal.

But counsel to all respondents in the petition strongly objected to the adoption of Adesokans witness statement on oath maintaining that the petitioners failed to frontload the statement on oath with their petition.

Following the arguments for and against the tendering of the video tape as evidence by lawyers to various parties backed by a plethora of authorities cited, the tribunal deferred its ruling on the admissibility of the evidence till today (Saturday).

Onis counsel, Mr. Adebayo Adenipekun (SAN), said if the witness was allowed to give further evidence, the process would open door for more witnesses to be " smuggled in through the backdoor" which would not be in the interest of justice describing the witness as an "ordinary man".

Adenipekun who maintained that the witness was not supposed to be subpoenaed in the first place argued that the petitioners failed to adhere to the Practice Direction and the Federal High Court Civil Procedure rule saying the witness was not qualified to testify at the tribunal

Counsel to the PDP, Mr. ObafemiAdewale said the petitioners did not allude to any exceptional case to warrant a delay in deposing to Adesokans witness citing the case of Chime v Onyia (2009) as reported in 2 NWLR to substantiate his case.

Adewale further submitted that allowing the witness to go ahead for cross-examination would be tantamount to a gross violation of the Tribunal Practice Direction.

INEC counsel, Mr. Roland Otaru (SAN) urged the tribunal to reject the deposition of the witness which, according to him, would set a bad precedent that would deal a mortal blow to the cause of justice in the petition at hand.

He submitted that the subpoena could only be used to compel a hostile witness to give evidence before a competent court of law adding that the witness have consented ab initio to give evidence in favour of a party in the petition.

Mr. Nathaniel Oke(SAN), counsel to the Returning Officers for Ido/Osi and Ijero Local Government Areas pointed out that the time of the deposition of the witness had run out saying granting the request would be detrimental to the case of respondents.

Counsel to the Nigeria Police and Inspector General, Mr. Sebastian Ozoana adopted the submissions of other respondents counsel urging the tribunal to reject the statement on oath deposed to by the witness.

Replying on point of law, Adeniyi noted that the position of the counsel to the respondents that a video cameraman could not be treated as an official witness was a flagrant misconception of the position of the law.

Adeniyi said the provisions of Paragraph 50 of the First Schedule of the Electoral Act 2006 did not classify who could be treated as an official witness or unofficial witness describing the objections of the counsel to respondents as not only frivolous but unfounded in law.

He submitted further that the tribunal in an earlier ruling had dismissed similar objection to the appearance of an AC witness on the premise that his witness statement on oath was not frontloaded adding that categorization of witnesses into official or unofficial was unknown to the law.

Oni Denies Alleged Victimisation of Workers   Back To Top

From: This Day      Published on: Saturday, September 12, 2009

From Toba Suleiman in Ado-Ekiti

Ekiti State Government has denied the wide spread allegation that the state governor, Mr Segun Oni has been victimising workers of the state, following their alleged refusal to support him during the last April 25 rerun governorship election in the state.
The chairman of Ekiti State Civil Service Commission, Chief Kunle Ogunlade, who made the denial at the weekend while chatting with newsmen in Ado-Ekiti, described Oni as a man, who is reputed for not being piety in his action.
According to him, Governor Oni was not elected by members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), but by the entire people of the state, adding that it is not possible for the governor to single out the workers in the state for punishment.
While urging people of the state to ignore and see such rumour as the handiwork of the opposition, Ogunlade further warned workers in the state against partisan politics, saying those who want to belong to political parties should quit their job instead of violating civil service rules.
He said all actions of his commission and other agencies of government in recent times were carried out in conformity with rules and regulations guiding the civil service.
"When I was assuming this office, I did not swear oath of allegiance to implement PDP agenda but to follow the provisions of the constitution and perform my duty in accordance with the law that established this commission without fear or favour to any individual or group of people", he maintained. Also speaking on the recent 4,000 recruitment of new workers by the state government, the Chairman denied the insinuation that the exercise which was conducted by the government through his Commission was a political gimmick by government to compensate PDP loyalist.
He said all those picked after the exercise met the minimum standard required by government.

While giving detail of the exercise, Ogunlade disclosed that those who invited for the final interview were those who scored 60 per cent and above during the exam earlier conducted for candidates in English and Mathematics. He added that, those exempted from the examination were two percent disabled people who were recruited on the directives of the governor. Other people exempted, according to him, were NYSC members having merit awards during their service in the state who were also given automatic employment on the approval of the governor. He disclosed further that 7 percent of total numbers of workers given employment during the exercise were non-indigenes of the state but who all went through exams and other procedures to secure job in the state. According to him, out of total number of 4,000 workers recruited, 1000 were deployed to State Universal Basic Education Board [SUBEB] as primary school teachers, 2000 deployed to the Local Government Service Commission to be distributed to the sixteen local governments in the state.
He said, the remaining 1,000 were retained by the state government to fill various vacant positions in the civil service.

Ekiti: Lawyers Kick Against Examination Of Suspects   Back To Top

From: Nigerian Tribune      Published on: Saturday, September 12, 2009

Dapo Falade, Ado-Ekiti

THE petition filed by the Action Congress (AC) governorship candidate, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, on Friday, suffered a setback at the state Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Ado-Ekiti as counsels to the respondents objected to the cross-examination of one of the witnesses.

The objection by counsels to Governor Segun Oni, the PDP, the INEC and the police was predicated on the fact that the witness was not validly qualified in the face of law to give evidence before the tribunal, based on the premise that Fayemi had failed to frontload his Statement Witness on Oath

The AC witness, Mr. Busuyi Adesokan, an apprentice video cameraman, who was subpoenaed on the order of the tribunal on September 7, was already in the dock for cross-examination before the objection was raised that his Statement Witness on Oath was not adoptable.

He was subpoenaed to tender as exhibit a video clip containing the alleged violence said to have marred the conduct of the April 25 governorship rerun election, the outcome of which was now a subject of litigation before the tribunal.

Raising the objection after being led in evidence by the counsel to the petitioner, Chief Tony Adeniyi, Governor Onis counsel, Mr. Adebayo Adenipekun (SAN), said that it was legally wrong for the witness to have been subpoenaed, saying he was not valid to be called an official witness.

Ekiti Speaker Wants Gani Immortalised   Back To Top

From: Nigerian Tribune      Published on: Saturday, September 12, 2009

Dapo Falade, Ado-Ekiti

SPEAKER of the Ekiti State House of Assembly, Honorable Tunji Odeyemi, has called on the Federal Government to immortalise the late legal luminary, Chief Gani Fawenhinmi (SAN), in recognition of his struggle for the enthronement of democratic rule in the country.

Odeyemi, who made the call in Ado-Ekiti on Friday in a statement issued by his Special Assistant on Media, Mr. Rotimi Ajisola, described the death of the foremost human rights crusader as a setback to the growth of democracy in Nigeria, adding, Chief Fawehinmi was a field marshall in the fight for democratic growth in the country.

According to him, some might have seen Gani as an enemy and some might have seen him as a friend, but one fact remains that nobody can take his love for justice and democracy from him.

The speaker, therefore, said that the immortalisation of the late lawyer would go a long way to encourage the present generation and generations yet unborn on the need for the struggle to sustain the stability of democracy in Nigeria and Africa in general.
