No grudge against those who impeached me – Former Ondo Deputy Governor
The former Ondo State Deputy Governor, Alh. Ali Olanusi, on Saturday, said he held no grudges against those that impeached him.
The Court of Appeal sitting in Akure, on Friday, reversed the impeachment of Olanusi as the former deputy governor of Ondo State.
Olanusi was impeached by the state House of Assembly on April 27, 2015, following his dumping the Labour Party (LP) through which he was elected into office, for the All Progressive Congress(APC).
Speaking with newsmen in Akure, Olanusi, also an APC chieftain, said his vindication was not by his cleverness, but by God’s work.
“There is no cause for revenge. I am a Musilm to the core, so if God didn’t want all this to happen, it wouldn’t have.
“The injustice of it all has been exposed to the people of Ondo State and may God reward all accordingly,” he said.
Olanusi also praised the Nigerian judicial system for improvements in granting true justice to anyone who sought it.
“I also thank the people of Ondo State who stood behind me in the period of my travails and didn’t lose hope,” he said.
Also speaking with newsmen, Counsel to Olanusi, Barr Richamond Natha-Alade, said the court had done justice because Olanusi was wrongfully and illegally impeached under the last administration.
“The best interest of Nigeria has been served and it is on this ground that the court granted all our requests. Everybody is bound by the law.
“It is a time of new dawn in Nigeria because the judgment is classical and touches on every aspect of law that borders on infringement of rights which is not allowed under our law,” he said.
