The 19 All Progressives Congress (APC) members of  the Ekiti State House of Assembly have urged the Chief Judge of the state, Justice Ayodeji Daramola to set up a panel to probe Governor Ayo Fayose.

The lawmakers, in a letter to Justice Daramola, stated that the seven-man panel would serve the purpose of investigating the allegations contained in the impeachment notice served to Fayose.

Some of the allegations levelled against the governor and his deputy, Kolapo Olusola are impunity, violence and stalking among others.

The APC lawmakers reached the resolution on Thursday, April 9, 2015, at a special sitting at the Mary Hills Boys’ High School in Ado Ekiti.

Majority Leader, Churchill Adedipe, explained that the session couldn’t hold at the Assembly premises due to the roadblocks mounted by Fayose’s supporters.

“Relying on Section 188 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended), Adedipe moved the motion empowering the CJ to set up the panel,” a statement by Wole Olujobi, media aide to Speaker, Adewale Omirin reads.

Fayose and Olusola had urged a Federal High Court in Abuja to discontinue the impeachment proceedings but the court declined and instead ordered the lawmakers and Justice Daramola to appear before it on April 15.
