OSUN state government has declared that it was unaware of any plot against the state Chief Judge, Honourable Justice Adepele Ojo even as it affirms its commitment to due process and stipulated regulations across the arms of government.
Senator Ademola Adeleke, Osun State governor, and his team are preoccupied with delivering on good governance to the citizenry with no time for diversionary conducts, according to a statement by Oluomo Kolapo Alimi, commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment.
The statement said that “The government also wishes to state that the constitution and the state laws clearly spell out responsibilities of state officials. The same laws lay out rules for accountability and transparency across government sectors. The Governor and all government officials whether elected or appointed into any arm of government are not immune from the accountability process.
“The Governor is therefore not in a position to stop the legislature from doing her statutory job and neither can the Governor hamstring the judiciary in the performance of its duties.
“The Governor is however committed to supporting all arms of government to operate within the ambit of the law and constitution.”
It stated: “We have stated it persistently that those holding social media briefs for the Chief Judge are not doing the Judiciary any good. The sponsored civil society groups that failed to acknowledge the good that the Adeleke-led Administration is doing for the Judiciary are those running sponsored lies against the present administration in Osun.
“It is from the above premise that the state government was taken aback by the allegations from the coalition of civil society groups. We urge the public to take note that the Governor will not be involved in anything against the law, due process and constitution of the Republic of Nigeria.”
