Governor Ayodele Fayose has said that the Federal Government should not use the report of a military panel set-up to investigate the June 21, 2014 Ekiti governorship election.

 

Fayose, who spoke through the Ekiti State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr Owoweni Ajayi, on Wednesday, said the verdict of the Supreme Court on the governorship election was superior to that of any tribunal.

 

Specifically, Fayose said that the report could not be used to prosecute the members of the Peoples Democratic Party, Ekiti, alleged to have been culpable in the rigging of the election.

 

In an open letter written by the commissioner to the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Alhaji Abubakar Malami, Fayose said that plans were afoot by the Federal Government to prosecute Ekiti PDP members over the alleged rigging.

 

The state government said that the Supreme Court had put the contentious issues arising from the petition by the All Progressives Congress over the election to rest by delivering a judgment in favour of the governor and the PDP.
