A lawyer, Kabir Akingbolu has sued Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti state at the Federal High Court in Lagos state, for joining the ongoing workers’ strike in the state.

Akingbolu said Fayose’s action amounts to abdication of his duties as Governor.

The Ekiti state Governor in June 2016, joined the civil servants’ strike after efforts to make them return to work proved abortive.

Fayose also explained that he decided to join the workers to express his concern for their plight.

Premium Times reports that Akingbolu said “Considering the provision of Section 176 subsection 1 and 2 of the Constitution whether the abdication of duty by the 1st Defendant in reckless abandonment is not a violation of Oath of office taken by him as Governor of Ekiti.”

The lawyer prayed the court to declare that Fayose has lost his position as the state Governor, adding that he did not hand over to his deputy.

Akingbolu also told the court to order President Buhari to declare a state of emergency in Ekiti state to forestall any breakdown of law and order.
