JUST IN: Osun APC drag Adeleke to court for appointing self commissioner for works

The All Progressives Congress (APC) chapter in Osun State has filed a lawsuit against Governor Ademola Adeleke for appointing himself as the Commissioner for Works.

In Osogbo, Osun State, the ruling party filed the complaint at the State High Court.

The appointment of Kola Adewusi, Adeleke’s deputy, as the Commissioner for Sports and Special Needs was also contested by the APC.

The APC is upset with the governor’s plan following the nominations on July 19.
By way of its attorney Sherif Oluyombo, the opposition party is asking the court to decide whether a serving governor can lawfully hold any other administrative office in addition to the governorship.

Citing Section 192(2) and (5) of the Nigerian constitution, the plaintiff has asked the court to establish whether “a person can be validly appointed a commissioner of the government of a state if his nomination is not forwarded to and received by the State’s House of Assembly for purposes of confirmation.”

Meanwhile, the Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke, on Wednesday, approved the appointment of 14 more Special Advisers to cover various sectors in the state.

This was disclosed in a statement by the spokesperson to the Governor, Olawale Rasheed, in Osogbo.

1.Yemi Owolade
