Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti state has been dragged before a Federal High Court in Lagos for joining workers of the state’s civil service in their industrial action.

It was gathered that a lawyer, Kabir Akingbolu, who sued the governor before a Federal High Court in Lagos, argued that Mr. Fayose’s decision amounted to abdication of duties.

''Considering the provision of Section 176 subsection 1 and 2 of the Constitution whether the abdication of duty by the 1st Defendant in reckless abandonment is not a violation of Oath of office taken by him as Governor of Ekiti,” Mr. Akingbolu stated in his originating summons.

In his court papers, Mr. Akingbolu sought an order of the court declaring that Mr. Fayose has lost his position as governor “having failed to transmit power to his deputy as envisaged by the constitution”.
