The Ekiti State House of Assembly on Thursday passed a resolution calling for the constitution of a judicial panel of inquiry into the financial transactions of the immediate past administration led by Dr. kayode Fayemi.
But the Minister’s Special Assistant on Media, Mr. Yinka Oyebode, described the action of the lawmakers as “nothing but legislative rascality”. Mr. Fayemi is now Minister of Mines under the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Oyebode said in a statement made available to journalists that the decision of the lawmakers was not only ill-advised but reckless, considering the fact that two different law suits surrounding the purported probe are still pending in court.
“Simply put, the lawmakers’ attempt to institute a judicial panel or administrative panel, while the two cases involving the House of Assembly, its leadership and a top official of the present administration (In an Abuja High Court and Ado Ekiti Federal High Court) are yet to be determined is subjudice
“And, sadly, this is just a reflection of their poor knowledge of the law.
“The lawmakers are advised to study the constitution properly and understand their roles as well as the limit of their powers, as this desperate attempt to implicate the immediate past administration is nothing but another wild goose chase”, Oyebode added.
