Some members of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have asked the Chief Judge of Ondo State, Justice Oluwatoyin Akeredolu to reassign their case pending before Justice Sunday Olorundahunsi of the Ondo State high court.
There has been dispute in some Local Governments over the outcome of the PDP local and state congress meeting.
Some aggrieved members have gone to court to challenge the outcome of the congress, while others have sought the intervention of party leaders in resolving the dispute.
The matter got worse as the PDP members from Akoko Northeast Local Government in a petition to the Chief Judge said they have lost confidence in the ability of Justice Olorundahunsi to dispense justice in their matter pending before him.
Specifically, the PDP members including Mr. Tosin Daniyan, Aliyu Nurudeen and 15 others in their letter to Chief Judge said they could not get justice from Justice Olorundahunsi in the case pending before the court.
The letter reads “we are reiterating the fact that it is easy for the camel to pass through the needle of a hole than to get justice served before the Hon. Justice Olorundahunsi who is the presiding judge.
“The claimants thus have their leader who is sponsoring their case in the person of Mr. Bode Obanla who is a very close friend of Hon. S. Olorundahunsi.
“The Claimants in their report have said that they have no confidence in the presiding judge and in view of this urges the chief judge in the Ondo state high court to consider their request as a matter of urgency.”
