The All Progressives Congress, APC in Osun State has condemned the nullification of the selection process that produced Oba Adegboyega Famodun as the Owa of Igbajo by Governor Ademola Adeleke.
In a statement by the Osun APC, Tajudeen Lawal, the party also described the government’s action as an abuse of the governor’s executive power.
Governor Adeleke, through an Executive Order issued on November 27, 2022, directed the Owa of Igbajoland, Oba Famodun and two other traditional rulers appointed by former governor Adegboyega Oyetola to step aside from their palaces.
“It is strange that Governor Adeleke, notwithstanding the pendency of the suit, keeps hounding, humiliating, oppressing, and denying Oba Famodun his rights, said the APC in the statement
“The purported nullification of the process that produced the Owa of Igbajoland by the governor is an aberration, legal absurdity with a metaphorical foot of clay whose imminent fall would be like that of a pack of cards.”
Lawal stated “The fact remains that the nullification of the Obaship selection process which followed a due process can neither sit nor stand because it is a product of political vindictiveness”
