The Special Adviser on Strategy and Political Matters to the Governor of Oyo State, Honourable Babatunde Oduyoye has said the letter credited to the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami on the matter of Oyo State Local Governments is sub-judice.
Hon. Oduyoye stated that as far as the matter was still before the Court of Appeal, no one is expected to take extra-constitutional measures, except such a person is nursing ulterior motives.
“The matter is in Court and as far as we are concerned, it is sub judice,” the Political Adviser said, adding that Mr Malami must have committed an obvious blunder by taking a step against the interest of the judiciary and the Constitution he was meant to protect.
According to Hon. Oduyoye, the Government of Oyo State was not oblivious of the intent of some elements in the opposition Party to plunge the State into crisis and possibly make it ungovernable.
According to the former Chief Whip of Alliance for Democracy (AD) in the House of Representatives, the purported letter from the office of the Minister of Justice and Attorney-General of the federation, Abubakar Malami (SAN), was part of the grand plot to frustrate the Makinde Government, thereby preventing him from delivering the dividends of democracy to the people of Oyo State.
In a statement he personally signed, the Political Adviser warned the Federal Government and its agents to be wary of their actions especially as they affect the Local Government debacle in Oyo State, noting that the matter was still in Court.
