NJC queries Osun judge over petition against Aregbesola

Osogbo—The National Judicial Council NJC has queried a serving judge in Osun State, Justice Olamide Falahanmi Oloyede, over her petition  to the state House of Assembly to commence impeachment proceedings of Governor Rauf Aregbesola and his deputy, Mrs Titilayo Laoye-Tomori for  allegedly mismanaging the state’s resources.

A committee was set-up by the House of Assembly to look into the petition and the house subsequently dismissed the petition for lack of evidence against the respondent.

But the Osun Civil Societies Coalition later petitioned the National Judicial Council, NJC, alleging that the judge over-stepped her limit as she failed to conduct herself in such a manner as to preserve the dignity of her office being an impartial and independent organ, thereby exposing the  judiciary to ridicule and disrepute.

The query lette,r which was personally signed by the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Mahmud Mohammed is expected to be answered within 14 days by the judge.
