The Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has praised the Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, for sending the name of Justice Walter Onnoghen to the Senate for confirmation as the substantive Chief Justice of Nigeria.
Fayose said this action saved the judiciary and Nigeria from unnecessary tension.
According to a statement issued by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Fayose said “On this one, Prof. Osinbajo has shown that he listens, unlike President Muhammadu Buhari that has ruled the country like a military dictator. I salute the Acting President.”
Meanwhile, Fayose will on Monday welcome South Western governors governors in Ado-Ekiti in continuation of their regular meetings aimed at ensuring regional integration.
Another statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Idowu Adelusi, in Ado-Ekiti on Thursday said the meeting would “continue to pursue a unified framework for tackling the development challenges of the region.
“At their last meeting hosted by the Oyo State Government in Ibadan on 21 November, 2016, it was resolved that the next meeting of the forum should be hosted by the Ekiti State Government.
“This meeting is expected to take some critical decisions in respect of the mission of the Development Agenda for Western Nigeria, for which all the state governments have declared their commitment.
“Governors from Ekiti, Osun, Ondo, Oyo, Ogun and Lagos are to attend the meeting,” the statement said.
