Earlier in the day, Pride Magazine brought you the news of Ondo Deputy Governor, Alhaji Ali Olanusi’s impeachment. However in a statement made available to this reporter this afternoon through his lawyer, Oluwole Kayode, he warned that he has not been removed from office and cited a court order that the status quo be maintained in respect of that office. The court order was granted Last Thursday, April 23, 2015.
“Another action in respect of the same office and the impeachment process is pending in court and will come up on the 7th of May 2015.
“I think public office holders and people who are put in position to defend the constitution must be law abiding,” Mr. Oluwole said. “In the light of this disobedience to court order and the impunity displayed in the course of the impeachment proceedings, the Deputy Governor is on solid ground.”
