Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose has congratulated Abia state Governor Okezie Ikpeazu on his victory at the Supreme Court.
The Governor in his congratulatory message mocked Justice Okon Abang for his ‘corrupt’ judgement over Ikpeazu case at the appeal court level.
Fayose’s congratulatory message read, “Your Excellency must more than ever before continue to make a difference in the lives of your people. You must continue to put a wide gap between your good self and the political charlatans who have now got to their tether’s end. ”
“The Supreme Court, where they have now failed, is the last bus stop for them. They also failed at the Court of Appeal.
“It is instructive that the only court where your opponents won was at the high court of Justice Okon Abang, who has become notorious for “Jankara” and “Oluwole.”
“It is a shame that a man like Abang, who has been roundly lampooned again and again by his colleagues and superiors as a disgrace to the Bench, still answers the name of a judge and continues to sit on the Bench.
“He should be kicked out without delay. His peers and superiors have told us times without number that Abang dispenses injustice. His pronouncements, rulings and judgments have variously been described by fellow judges as a travesty of justice. What is such a man still doing on the Bench?
“I make bold to say that Abang is not fit to be in the Judiciary system again. Court of Appeal in the Ikpeazu case.”
“A judge adjudged by fellow judges as having committed ‘great violence against one of the pillars of our criminal justice’ has outlived his usefulness on the Bench.”
