Ekiti State Governor Kayode Fayemi has described ousted Governor Segun Oni’s criticism of the decision of the National Judicial Council (NJC) recommendation, which reinstated President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Ayo Salami, as his familiar conducts of “bad faith”.
The governor said it was not surprising “that Mr Oni and his co-travellers in the do-or-die politics will come out to fault the NJC’s decision recommending the reinstatement”.
He added: “It is in their nature to fault and attempt to cripple any positive step that is bound to move the country forward. In this particular case, their noise is nothing more than the ranting of a defeated ant.
“It is on records that this same decision of the NJC they are criticising has been lauded by many well-meaning Nigerians, credible organisations and institutions.”
Fayemi described the NJC decision as “the triumph of truth”.
He said: “What else do these little minds want? Is it that they are too ignorant to understand and fully appreciate the course of justice, which they labour so much to pervert? Or, are they just a bunch of desperate politicians seeking power and relevance through fraudulent route, for which Nigerians have become weary?
“While it is possible to overlook their ignorance, one cannot but point out their propensity for mischief in their desperate moves to cover up for their vote robbery and inglorious exit from power. The fact that all points the NJC and other bodies raised to examine allegations against Justice Salami have all exonerated him, speaks volume.
“Perhaps these power traducers should know now that Nigerians will not sacrifice justice on the Lucifer’s altar of desperation, just to please some do-or-die politicians. Truth is constant and will always prevail.”
