Why Fayose Cannot Contest To Be Governor Again – Falana
Human rights lawyer, Femi Falana ( SAN), has described as anomalous the likely bid by Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State to seek re-election in 2018.
Fayose had said on Monday that he would contest the 2018 governorship election so that he could serve his first term which was truncated in 2006.
Fayose was impeached in 2006, but Supreme Court in 2014 nullified the impeachment that ousted him from the office about seven months to the end of his first term.
Reacting, Falana said Fayose’s bid to seek re-election would amount to tenure elongated which no court could grant. He said;
“Tenure extension by a governor under any disguise is anomalous. No court can prolong the tenure of a sitting governor buying the two terms prescribed by the Constitution.
