Abeokuta Division of the Federal High Court has restrained a Senator representing Lagos West Senatorial District in the Upper Legislative Chamber, Sen. Olamilekan Adeola from parading himself as the winner of the All Progressives Congress (APC) primary election of Ogun West senatorial district, conducted on Saturday, 28th May, 2022 at the Oronna Hall, Ilaro, Yewa South of Ogun State.
In an order of interlocutory injunction brought under order 39, rule 1, filed at the Federal High Court, Abeokuta, Ogun State restraining the senator representing Lagos West Senatorial District, Sen. Olamilekan Adeola otherwise known as Yayi has been sighted by newsmen.
The plaintiffs: Adebiyi Adeyinka Tajudeen, Olajumoke Ibrahim and Muideen Akintade while challenging the Lagos West Senator for denigrating the political reputation of the people of Ogun West.
They argued that the show of interest of the current Senator representing Lagos West Senatorial District, Sen. Olamilekan Adeola, in contesting elections in Ogun West Senatorial District without having stayed in Ogun State for the number of the times required by law and without having been from Ogun State and without resigning as a member representing Lagos West Senatorial District is a deliberate marginalisation and an infringement on the democratic rights of the people of Ogun West Senatorial District and of Ogun State in general.
They further submitted that, contesting without being a member of the party in Ogun West nor a registered voter in Ogun West Senatorial District is contrary to the Constitution of Nigeria repugnant to natural justice, equity and good conscience. The legal document said the move by Senator Olamilekan Adeola is undemocratic, flirtatious, disenfranchising, illegal, abnormal, denigrating to the political reputation of the people of Ogun West and Nigeria at large.
