ABUJA – Senator Adedayo Adeyeye yesterday described the tribunal judgment that sacked him as an open robbery that would not stand.
Describing the judgment as a direct assault on the integrity of the Nigerian judiciary, Adeyeye, in a statement, accused the judges of contradicting themselves throughout the judgment.
The lawmaker also accused the tribunal of trying to steal for Biodun Olujimi, disclosing that he would remain focused on his duty to his constituents and the nation.
Boasting that, “We shall prevail, we shall have justice.
“The judgement of the tribunal today is not short of open robbery and a direct assault on the integrity of the Nigerian judiciary.
“The whole world knows that the senatorial election of February 23rd was the freest and fairest in the history of our state. No doubt the judgement was purchased. And upon proper scrutiny the filthy lucre that influenced it will be revealed.
“The judges shamelessly contradicted themselves throughout the judgement. They went to great lengths to reach a conclusion that did not follow from the premise with jaundiced and twisted logic.
“To the teeming masses of Ekiti South whose vote the tribunal is trying to steal for Olujimi, they should be rest assured that the judgement will not stand. I have instructed my lawyers to immediately proceed on appeal. And by the grace of Almighty God, we shall have justice.
“Meanwhile I will remain focused on my duty to my constituents and the Nation . We shall prevail.”
