THE Osun State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on Saturday described the compulsory retirement of Justice Olamide Folahanmi Oloyede of the Osun State High Court by the National Judicial Commission (NJC) as vindictive and condemnable.
Reacting over the development while speaking during a telephone chat with Sunday Tribune, the secretary of the PDP in Osun, Prince Bola Ajao said “the retirement of Justice Oloyede is unwarranted and height of injustice.”
According to him, “the retirement of Justice Oloyede has shown in clear terms that the government of Governor Rauf Aregbesola is vindictive. Up till today, Aregbesola has not been able to provide any reasonable answer to the myriad of questions and allegations raised in the petition of Justice Oloyede to the EFCC.”
“The NJC action is at the behest or instance of the government of Osun State. What they are saying is that the honourable judge was involved in judicial activism.
