Judges Should not Vacate office over mere allegations by DSS – SAN

by on October 24, 2016

Chief Wole Olanipekun (SAN) has kicked against the call by the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) on the seven judges arrested by the DSS for alleged corruption to resign their offices until their cases were resolved.

Olanipekun said though he is in support of the NBA Presi­dent, Mr. Mahmoud Abubakar, in his view that the Bench should be rid of corruption, but added that the integrity of the judiciary will be greatly demeaned if judg­es vacate office over mere allega­tions by the DSS.

The NBA had asked the Na­tional Judicial Council (NJC) to order the affected judges to va­cate their seats to allow the issues to be resolved.
Speaking in Ikere-Ekiti at the weekend after being conferred with the chieftaincy title of Asi­waju of Ikereland, Olanipekun declared that any President and governor accused of corruption should also step down, so that the policy can be implemented across board.

He promised to use his new status to unite all the warring fac­tions in the town, especially the supremacy battle between Ogo­ga of Ikere, Oba Adejimi Adu and the Olukere of Ikere Ekiti, Oba Ganiyu Obasoyin.
