Ondo State Deputy Governor, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, has countered a recent letter written by the House of Assembly to the Chief Judge (CJ), Olusola Odusola, where the former asked the CJ to constitute a panel to investigate allegations of gross misconduct levelled against Aiyedatiwa.
In a seven-page letter written by his lead counsel, Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa, dated October 24, he urged the CJ to disregard the letter.
The Assembly had, in a letter signed by the House speaker, asked the CJ to constitute a panel to investigate the deputy governor in line with the constitution, claiming that the orders of injunction granted by the Federal High Court, Abuja, had expired.
But the deputy governor punctured the position of the Assembly, which he said was based on conjectures, misconceptions, inconsistencies, undue desperation and misconstruction of the law.
He said the orders granted by the Federal High Court, Abuja on September 26, 2023, were still in force and remain valid and subsisting, contrary to the conclusion of the Assembly that the said orders had expired by operation of law.
