Fayose’s Impeachment In 2006 Was Not Valid – Supreme Court

Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State

The Supreme Court has upheld the judgement of both the Ekiti State Governorship Tribunal and the Court of Appeal which had earlier affirmed Governor Ayodele Fayose’s victory at the polls in 2014 gubernatorial election.

The apex courts ruling which came on Tuesday, April 14, 2015 ‎also said that Governor Fayose was not validly impeached in 2006.

In a unanimous judgement, a seven-man panel of Justices of the court led by Justice John Fabiyi,also held that the appeal which challenged Fayose’s election victory at the 2014 Ekiti State governorship election lacked  merit.

The panel maintained that the APC failed to prove its allegation that the election was fraught with unparalleled irregularities, adding that the allegation that Fayose tendered forged Higher National Diploma Certificate ‎to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, was not proved beyond every reasonable doubt.
