The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State has rejected Wednesday’s judgment by the Court of Appeal sacking the spokesman for the Senate, Prince Dayo Adeyeye.
The party said that the ruling did not reflect the wishes of the people of Ekiti South.
“The judgment, delivered earlier today can best be described as a travesty of Justice and robbing Peter to pay Paul,” the Party declared in a statement.
The APC, through its Director of Media and Publicity, Elder Sam Oluwalana, noted that the short period spent by Senator Adeyeye at the red chamber was indelible and remarkable for the people of Ekiti South and the state in general.
“We commend Prince Dayo Adeyeye, who was highly-reverred by his colleagues in the Upper Chambers, for the exemplary leadership, which he exhibited within the short period he spent in the Senate. We are proud of his achievements during the period, as he was able to manage information outflow, without any scandal in the House,” the statement read.
The party spokesman, however, appealed to the people to go about their normal businesses rather than taking the laws into their hands over the judgement.
Oluwalana advised the people not to be discouraged by the court judgement, saying that they should continue to support the APC in the state in its quest to turn around the mismanaged economy of the state by immediate past regime.
