The Government of Ekiti has been ordered to pay N3.3 billion to Local Government Chairmen deposed by former Governor Kayode Fayemi.
The Supreme Court of Nigeria
Following the reckless decision of the former governor, now the Minister of Solid Minerals, Kayode Fayemi in 2010 to relieve Local Government Chairmen of their duties on resumption of office as Governor, the Supreme Court has instructed Ekiti State to pay N3.3 billion to the deposed Chairmen.
Dailytrust reported that Fayemi had appointed caretaker committee into his government to carry out most of the functions that the local government chairmen and councilors would have done.
In a unanimous judgment read by Justice Chima Nweze, the Supreme Court held that the sack by Fayemi was illegal and unconstitutional.
Nweze ordered that the chairmen, who were unlawfully removed by the governor, to be paid their salaries and other allowances for the period they were unlawfully removed from office.
Speaking outside the court, Mr Wole Ayeni, former Chaiman, Ikole Local Government and Mr Ogunbiyi Olasunkanmi-Synergy commended the court for the good judgment.
They, therefore, commended the judiciary as the last hope of the common man.
