Save the Poor and Needy Charity Initiative (SPANCI) called Governor Ademola Adeleke’s removal of Osun State Chief Judge Justice Oyebola Adepele Ojo illegal and unconstitutional.
The dismissal of the Osun State Chief Judge was illegitimate and an executive-legislative conspiracy that harms democracy, rule of law, and separation of powers, according to SPANCI
Adeleke removed Ojo as state chief judge a few days ago, according to janescope.
On Saturday, SPANCI president Yemi Ezekiel Bello told janescope that the governor’s action is bad for democracy and the rule of law.
He claimed that the governor’s decision subjugates the judiciary and its personnel to the executive and legislative branches.
Bello instructed the governor not to politicize things and demanded the chief judge’s quick reinstatement.
Osun CJ, Justice Oyebola’s Ojo dismissal is unconstitutional, unlawful, illegal, an executive and legislative conspiracy, bad for democracy, rule of law, separation of powers of the three parts of government, and citizens’ human rights defense.
Save the Poor and Needy Charity Initiative (SPANCI) opposes His Excellency, Ademola Adeleke, the executive governor of Osun State,’s unlawful removal of Justice Oyebola Adepele Ojo.
He added: “If this illegality is allowed to stay, the executive and legislative arm of government can conspire against citizens and their human rights without obeying the court to suit their personal opinion, rendering our courts and her orders useless and dooming our democracy as our legal and judicial system becomes a slave to both the executive and legislative and inviting anarchy.”
He concluded: “We hereby demand the immediate reversal of such unlawful, illegal, and unconstitutional removal in obedience to our constitution and protection of the rule of law, which is good for a pure democratic nation”.
