Fayemi Reacts To Removal Of Adeyeye By Appeal Court
Governor Kayode Fayemi has expressed optimism that Prince Dayo Adeyeye will bounce back politically after the court of appeal nullified his victory.
Yans.ng gathered that the Ekiti governor said this in a statement released on Thursday, November 7 saying it was painful that the court remains the final stop on the matter.
He urged the former Senate spokesperson to remain calm despite the judicial pronouncement saying it was not the end of his political career or public service.
He recalled that the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the lawaker campaigned vigorously during the last election and got the endorsement of the people of the district.
He said: “As we continue to deepen our democratic culture, we cannot but witness occasional setbacks of this nature. It is part of the sacrifice for our nation building.
“We must accept the decision of the appellate court- which is the final arbiter in this particular election petition, with equanimity, though painfully.
“The court’s ruling notwithstanding, Senator Adeyeye remains a credible politician with huge democratic credentials. While many may see this as a temporary setback, I urge him to brace up and see it as part of the sacrifice for the growth of democracy in the country.
“I am convinced that Senator Adeyeye will bounce back, in view of the pride of place he occupies in the hearts of his people.”
