APC has no intention to frustrate Fayose’s inauguration – Ojudu

The member representing Ekiti Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly, Senator Babafemi Ojudu, on Wednesday described as untrue and baseless, allegations by some members of the Peoples Democratic Party in the state that the All Progressives Congress was planning to frustrate the inauguration of the Governor – Elect, Mr. Ayo Fayose, on October 16.
According to PUNCH, Ojudu denied the alleged move by the APC to use the crisis between Fayose and the judiciary in the state to stop the swearing-in of the governor-elect.
He said, “It is not true that the All Progressives Congress in Ekiti State is plotting to frustrate the inauguration of Fayose on October 16.

What APC had done is to go to the tribunal to challenge the election of Fayose and the court was about to sit when Fayose invaded the court with his thugs and disrupted it.”

The senator explained that invasion of the court by  Fayose’s men, informed the relocation of the tribunal outside the state so that members can sit in a separate location.

He also added that the E-11 group had instituted its case against Fayose before the governorship election and that it was the annual court vacation that stalled the hearing of the suit before the poll.

He said, “The E-11 had gone to court since May 23 to challenge the qualification of Fayose to contest the election.  But there was a strike, and the court later went on vacation,  and the suit suffered some setback,  so they are just hearing it now.

“Why is the PDP in Ekiti blaming its misfortune on other people?  It is taken that when anybody is aggrieved,  the place to resolve it is the court and not through self help. The E-11 went to court,  and the APC went to court.

“It is the Fayose’s group that went to court to beat up judges and disrupt court proceedings.  Why are they now claiming to be the victim.”
