Traditional Rulers Intervene In Ekiti Assembly Tussle

Traditional rulers in Ekiti State have urged the impeached Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Gboyega Aribisogan, to withdraw from the court the suit he has filed against his dismissal.

At a peace meeting held at the Ewi’s Palace in Ado Ekiti on Monday, Ekiti Obas led by their Chairman, the Onisan of Isan Ekiti, Oba Gabriel Ayodele Adejuwon, called on Aribisogan to go back and join his colleagues, for the Assembly to move forward and the State to enjoy peace.

The Obas also advised that the majority members of the House (22) must accept Aribisogan back, lift his suspension and drop other punitive measures against him after fulfilling the conditions spelt out for others.

In his response, Aribisogan said he has heard what the Obas said but pointed out that he has decided to go to court and clear his name and not to come back to the House saying “once somebody is impeached, he cannot be elected until after 10 years.”

Aribisogan said the court case was filed to enforce his fundamental human rights adding that he would go back to his lawyers and feed them back with the resolution of the Ekiti Obas.
