Senator Ademola Adeleke, the governor of Osun State, has reversed his decision to appoint Justice Olayinka David Afolabi to serve as the state’s acting chief judge in his place.
The State House House of Assembly’s decision to remove Justice Ojo from office due to allegations of gross misconduct was the subject of controversy.
Justice Olayinka was appointed acting CJ by Governor Adeleke as a result of the circumstance. The Nigerian Bar Association and other judicial stakeholders have, however, rejected the proposal.
Adeleke suspends Chief Judge Ojo of Osun, according to READ.
Adeleke announced in a statement on Sunday that Oluomo Kolapo Alimi, his commissioner for information and public enlightenment, had sent the Federation Chief Justice the House of Assembly’s resolution and recommendation for decision and action.
The statement read, “Governor Adeleke has only properly informed the Chief Justice of the Federation in writing about the House of Assembly resolutions following a number of petitions made against the current Chief Judge of Osun State.”
“While the NJC reviews and decides on the petition, Mr. Governor hinted to the CJN in the communication that the House had recommended the Chief Judge step aside and include his own submission for an acting appointment.”
