Former Governor of Ekiti State, Chief Segun Oni has described as contemptuous and an insult on the judiciary the call by the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) in the State that his Appeal at the Supreme Court against the Appeal Court judgment should not be entertained

Oni is calling for the review of the October 15, 2010 judgment that removed him from office.

It was published in some national dailies that the ACN had urged the Supreme Court not to entertain the appeal filed by Oni seeking to unseat Governor Kayode Fayemi. 

However, Oni, who reacted through his Media Aide, Mr. Lere Olayinka said the ACN is only living up to its true name as a party of blackmailers and non-respecter of the rights of Nigerians to seek redress in the Court of Law.

He said it is the fundamental rights of Oni as a Nigerian to be heard whenever they choose to approach the Court while the court is statue barred to adjudicate on all matters brought before it.

Furthermore, it is the DUTY of the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Dahiru Musdapher to set up panel to adjudicate on matters brought before the Supreme Court.

On the ACN claim that Appeal Court decision on governorship election petition was final as at the time the October 15, 2010 judgment was delivered, Oni said asked Fayemi and  ACN to continue with the advertisement of their ignorance.
