Senator Ademola Adeleke, representatice of Osun West Senatorial District, has dismissed as laughable and an abuse of court process a suit seeking his removal as a senator.
Adeleke who was declared as winner of Osun State governorship election by the election petition tribunal said he is not worried by the suit seeking his removal from the senate.
In a satement issued on Friday night by Hon Niyi Owolade, Adeleke’s Legal Adviser, stated that the purported constituents who filed the suit are proxy forces of the All Progressive Congress (APC) and Gboyega Oyetola whom he accused of waging futile legal harassment following signs of an imminent end to their usurpation of Osun governorship seat.
The statement declared that “The initial judgement that this irritating suit is based on has been widely condemned by all learned minds, especially as the document wrongly declared as forged was duly issued by the authorities of the school.”
“It is in public domain and court records that the school Principal deposed to an affidavit confirming the testimonial and statement of results were duly issued by the school.WAEC’s deputy Registrar also came to depose to an Affidavit in court with the Certified True Copies of the same result submitted by Senator for his Senatorial election screening. How can any human being still declare such result as fake or forged?
“We declare that the suit is frivolous,clearly an abuse of court processes and a waste of the precious time of the Judiciary.
“It is important to restate that the matter of qualification and eligibility have been decided by two High Court Judgements in Osun state. A recent ruling of the Appeal Court Akure Division supports the Senator’s position. This matter is also subjudice as it is already a matter before a higher court; the Appeal Court.
