Fayose Berates Ekiti Chief Judge Over Comments On Court Complex
Former governor of Ekiti State, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, yesterday berated the chief judge of the state, Justice Ayodeji Daramola, for describing the new High Court complex built by his administration as “hybrid of absurdity”.
He asked the judge to shed the toga of unbridled hatred for him.
Justice Daramola had, on Tuesday, at a special court sitting to mark the commencement of the 2018/2019 Legal Year of Ekiti State Judiciary at High Court 1, stated: “As laudable as the new building is, it is still, in a way, a hybrid of absurdity.
In its present state, it can’t properly and comfortably function as a court house, as it was not properly designed for that purpose nor was it designed for administrative purposes.
“That, of course, is why we have not been able to put it into use since that building was commissioned earlier in May this year.”
He appealed to Governor Kayode Fayemi to reconstruct the interior of the building “to enable us put it into appropriate use.”
However, Fayose’s chief press secretary, Mr. Idowu Adelusi, said that the High Court complex “is the first of its kind since the creation of Ekiti State in 1996. If Daramola cannot commend Fayose, he could as well shut up his mouth and stop behaving like a cry-baby.” he said
