The Osun State Government pushed back Saturday against claims from some quarters that that the Ministru of Justice interfered with some civil cases.
A statement signed by the Special Assistant to the Commissioner for Justice and Attorney General, Arewa Oluwaseun stated that it is another round of baseless lies.
The statement reads:
‘Our attention has been drawn to a baseless rant in the mode of another round of false alarms over some civil cases in the law courts within the judicial jurisdiction of Osun State.”
“While the purveyor of the ranting, one Akin Adeyi, cowardly disguising in another name, is a renowned busybody not deserving of our response, we however wish to admonish members of the public to disregard all insinuations contained in the tissue of jargon”.
“The PDP administration of His Excellency, Governor Ademola Jackson Nurudeen Adeleke has always emphasized the need to observe the rule of law in all government businesses. The government will however not gag any of its officials from exercising their constitutional roles.”
“The government is not oblivious to attempts by Akin Adeyi to run through his usual route of mischief by preemptively stalking the Commissioner of Justice and Attorney General, Barrister Jimi Bada and Special Adviser on Legal Matters, Barrister Hassim Abioye over their constitutional powers of nollle prosequi.”
“For the avoidance of doubt, in one of the cases mentioned in the piece of ignorance by the ‘Babialah adult’ however, it was Saalu of Edunabon, Oba Oladapo Olatunde Adesoji Kehinde who was the nominal complainant, that applied that the charge be withdrawn after the peace meeting of stakeholders from Eduabon community.”
“The AG is not even aware that the case involving Olayiwola or Aderibigbe is pending and he doesn’t have any intention to be involved in a matter being prosecuted by the police. Akin Adeyi is therefore advised to get a life and devote his idleness to more profitable ventures than disgracing his ancestors.”
“The government of Osun State is firmly obligated to its mantra of prudence and wasting scarce resources of the state on brought-in dead litigations is certainly not on the table of such a policy.”
“The clarification above becomes necessary to dissuade the classless adult from the impressions of wading off government officials from performing their constitutional roles if and when the need arises”.
“However, we wish to state that as of today, neither the Honorable Commissioner of Justice nor the Special Adviser to His Excellency on Legal Matters has entered the doctrine of noble prosequi on any case in courts in Osun State”.
“If in any case, the government discontinues with any case in the future, such action must have become explicitly imperative and ultimately in the interest of Osun State. Had the government had any ulterior motive as being falsely portrayed, such action must have hurriedly been taken long ago.”
