Oyo: Sacked deputy governor, Rauf criticizes CJ, claims compromise

Rauf Olaniyan, the sacked Deputy Governor of Oyo State, has criticized the state’s Chief Judge, Justice Munta Abimbola, for the composition of the seven-member panel that recommended his removal from office.

Olaniyan claimed in a statement issued on Monday by his lawyer, Afolabi Fashanu (SAN), that the panel formed to investigate the allegations leveled against him was paid to do so.

He described the panel as a charade that would not stand the test of time.

He expressed regret that the panel members had allowed themselves to be compromised and used to do a dirty job.

The statement read, “The investigation by the committee set up by the Honorable Chief Judge is a charade that cannot stand the test of time. In the first instance, the Honorable Chief Judge, with respect, breached his oath of office by ignoring the service of notice of appeal and application for injunction pending appeal when he proceeded to constitute the investigation committee.

“This is against established law and practice. On the part of the panel, they were appointed and paid to do bodge job, which must be contrary to good conscience.

“They served the Deputy Governor on Friday around 10:45 am and asked him to appear at 11.am. We wrote to inform them that His Excellency needed time to prepare for his defence, in their desperation to do the job for which they were paid, they rejected the letter, sat on Saturday and completed their task the same day.

“Where is the fairness here? The members of the committee are supposed to be men above board. You have a Reverend father, a Jerusalem Pilgrim, and an Alhaji among them. This is a clear evidence that we are not yet ripe for democratic practice.”
