Justice Abiodun Adesodun of an Ado Ekiti High Court has struck out a suit filed by the 16 council chairmen in the state which sought an order to restrain Governor Kayode Fayemi from removing them from office.
The applicants who filed the suit under the aegis of the state chapter of the Association of Local Governments of Nigeria (ALGON) are members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The judge struck out the suit following a notice of discontinuance filed by their counsel, Mr. Ezekiel Agunbiade consequent upon the notice of preliminary objection filed by counsel to the defendants.
