A human rights group in Nigeria, the Centre for Human Rights and Social Justice, CHRSJ, has warned the embattled Osun State governor, Mr. Rauf Adesoji Aregbesola and his party, the All Progressives Congress, APC to stop politicizing the recent petition of the State High Court Judge, Justice Olamide Folahanmi Oloyede to the State House of Assembly, requesting for impeachment process against the state governor and his deputy over mismanagement of funds accrued to the State, saying that the ruling party in its call for resignation of Justice Oloyede was mischievous and the party should respect the
independence of the Judicial arm of government where Justice Oloyede belongs in Nigeria democratic life.
The rights group also insisted that Justice Oloyede would not resign her position as the Judge of the State High court, maintaining that Judicial arm of government was not under executive arm but the independent organ of the government in a democratic setting, noting that the resigning proponent of the ruling party in the State, was wishful thinking of the messenger and urged the APC to critically look at the message without minding the messenger.
According to CHRSJ:”We want to say here that APC as ruling party reacted to the Justice Olamide Folahanmi Oloyede’s petition against its government in Osun State in enmity and political manner which shows that Governor Rauf Adesoji
Aregbesola and APC are detesting criticisms in Osun politics and we believe that viable and formidable opposition is one the ingredients of survival of democracy in any political clime of the world. After all, Justice Oloyede has a right as a citizen of the country to comment on any issue bordering and affecting her environment.”
A statement issued and signed by the centre’s Executive Chairman, Comrade Adeniyi Alimi Sulaiman, and a copy made available to newsmen yesterday, declared that Justice Oloyede had not committed any offence in expressing her opinion on certain issues of national importance as enshrined in the amended 1999 constitution that could warrant the call for her resignation from office as being advised by the ruling APC.
Comrade Sulaiman, who strongly condemned the resignation offer to Justice Oloyede by the ruling party in the state, described APC’s position on the development as anti-democracy, anti-masses, evil, ungodly and unconstitutional and could not stand the test of the time.
