The Osun State House of Assembly on Wednesday dismissed the petition of Justice Folahanmi Oloyede against governor Rauf Aregbesola and her deputy, Mrs Titilayo Laoye Tomori
The House took the decision after the seven man ad-hoc investigation committee set up by the speaker of Osun state House of Assembly, Hon. Najeem Salam to investigate the petition submitted its report to the whole House.
The House unanimously agreed that the petition should be dismissed in its entirety for lacking in merit.
The Chairman of the panel, Mr. Adegboye Akintunde, who presented the the report at the plenary sitting of the House of Assembly on Wednesday, said the allegations of corruption contained in the petition were based on rumour.
The panel stated in its report presented before the House, that the judge violated the code of conduct of judicial officers which forbade them from coming out public on issues.
They stated that Oloyede, being a serving judge in Osun State, was not qualified to forward the petition to the lawmakers.
Despite this, they said the House accepted the petition and acted on it, but added that the judge abandoned her petition before the panel, having failed to appear personally.
They stated that although, Mr. Lanre Ogunlesi (SAN), represented the judge before the panel, the lawyer also did not substantiate the allegations of corruption against the governor with any evidence.
