Human rights lawyer, Mr. Femi Falana has described the likely bid by Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State to seek re-election in 2018 as abnormal.

‎Fayose had earlier this week revealed that he would contest the 2018 governorship election ‎so that he could serve his first term which was truncated in 2006.

It would be recalled Fayose was impeached in 2006, but the Supreme Court in 2014 nullified the impeachment that ousted him from the office about seven months to the end of his first term.

The governor disclosed that since the apex court had said that his impeachment in 2006 was illegal, he would then have to approach the same court to interpret what that ruling meant and also consider seeking a re-election in 2018.

‎However, Falana said that Fayose’s bid to seek re-election would amount to tenure elongated which no court could grant.
