Govenor Aregbesola Says Justice Oloyede Lied Against Him, Says She Is Unfit To Be A Judge

Osun State governor, Rauf Aregbesola, has described Justice Folahanmi Oloyede as a disgrace to the judiciary even as he questioned her integrity over the role she played in attempts made to impeach him.
The judge’s petition against Aregbesola and his deputy, Paoye Tomori was dismissed early in the week by the State House of Assembly. Oloyede had accused the Aregbesola administration, in a petition to the House of Assembly, of mismanaging the state’s resources, plunging it into a state of financial chaos.
The House dismissed the petition after its panel on the matter reported that Oloyede failed to substantiate her allegations with any evidence.
Speaking at the birthday party of the Speaker, Najeem Salaam today in the state capital, governor Aregbesola felt ashamed about what he called unbecoming conduct of the judge.
“I want to say that there was no basis for the petition. Its all lies. A judge that doesn’t know herself as judge. Judges can only be seen and not heard. She (Oloyede) doesn’t have any substance in the judiciary. She lied against me.
“The journalists should have checked the financial statement of the allocation before writing their stories.
“If it had collected N538 billion, Osun would have turned to Dubai. I am happy Buhari went to USA and it was said that one million barrels of crude oil was being stolen everyday.”
The governor said that at the time Justice Oloyede accused him of being absent from the state, the weekly executive meeting register proved otherwise.
“I have never gone on leave since November 2010 when I came into governance. There is no single truth in the judge’s petition.
“I will tell the side of my story bit by bit. I am confident that before the end of the month, the period of hard time will smoke off in the state.” [myad]
