Minister of Solid Minerals Development and former governor of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi, has criticised the Ekiti State House of Assembly over its resolution to set up a probe panel to investigate him.
Fayemi, while reacting to the resolution passed by the assembly to set up a panel of inquiry to look into his financial transactions while he was Governor of the State, said the lawmakers have poor knowledge of the law.
He made this known in a statement issued by Olayinka Oyebode, his media aide.
The minister described the legislators as reckless, due to the fact that two law suits concerning the probe were pending in the court.
”Simply put, the lawmakers’ attempt to institute a judicial panel or administrative panel, while the two cases involving the house of assembly, its leadership and a top official of the present administration (in an Abuja high court and Ado Ekiti federal high court) are yet to be determined is subjudice.
”And, sadly, this is just a reflection of their poor knowledge of the law.
”The lawmakers are advised to study the constitution properly and understand their roles as well as the limit of their powers, as this desperate attempt to implicate the immediate past administration is nothing but another wild goose chase,” he said.topics from
