Impeachment: Fayose prays, but court decides April 16
A Federal High Court in Abuja on Wednesday asked all parties involved in the impeachment drama against Ekiti State governor, Ayodele Fayose to appear before it to determine whether or not the impeachment process should go on or not.
Fayose, and his deputy, Kolapo Olusola had approached the court for an interim injunction to set aside the impeachment notice served on them and halt further moves to remove them from office.
But the court rejected their prayers, but rather, Justice Ahmed Mohammed ordered the defendants in the suit, including the APC factional Speaker of the House of Assembly, Adewale Omirin, and the Chief Judge of the state, Justice Ayodeji Daramola, to appear in court on April 16.
The court ordered the defendants to appear in court to show cause why the order of interim injunction being sought by the plaintiffs halting the impeachment proceedings should not be granted.

If Fayose is impeached, he’d be the 1st governor to be impeached twice,as he was impeached October 2006 on corruption charges. How sad it is that a man who was impeached on corruption charges, still won an election. Only in Naija
