Why It Can't Be Possible for Gov. Fayose To Re-Contest Again – Falana

Human rights legal advisor, Femi Falana ( SAN), has depicted as abnormal the feasible offered by Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State to look for re-race in 2018. 

Fayose had said on Monday that he would challenge the 2018 governorship decision with the goal that he could serve his initially term which was truncated in 2006.Fayose was impeached in 2006, but Supreme Court in 2014 nullified the impeachment that ousted him from the office about seven months to the end of his first term.

Reacting, Falana said Fayose’s bid to seek re-election would amount to tenure elongated which no court could grant. He said; "Tenure extension by a governor under any disguise is anomalous. No court can prolong the tenure of a sitting governor buying the two terms prescribed by the Constitution. 
"In the case of Gov Rasheed Ladoja v INEC the appellant wanted an extension of his term of office to allow him to spend extra 11 months while he was fighting his impeachment from outside. 
"Although the Supreme Court had set aside his impeachment it was held that the relief was illegal and unconstitutional. 
"Similarly, the governors who were re-elected after their initial election was annulled, the Supreme Court made it abundantly clear that tenure extension was unknown to the Constitution. In view of the settled position of the law on the matter, Governor Ayo Fayose cannot be granted by any court in Nigeria ."
