Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has reacted to the law suit filed against him by the First Lady of Nigeria, Aisha Buhari.
Speaking on behalf of the Ekiti state executive on Thursday, his lawyer, Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN), disclosed that his client is not aware of the suit filed against him by the wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, Aisha, adding that he is eagerly waiting to be served them.
Ozekhome also questioned whether the first lady had the right to sue a governor who had immunity under section 308 of the 1999 constitution.

Aisha had reportedly dragged Fayose to court for repeatedly alleging that she was one of those indicted for involvement in the multi-million dollars Halliburton scandal.

In the ex-parte motion, Mrs. Buhari prayed the Federal High Court, Abuja division, to grant her reliefs to issue writ of summons against Mr. Fayose and his media advisers, Idowu Adelusi and Lere Olayinka.
However, Fayose’s lawyer stated that:
“We have not been served Mrs. Aisha Buhari’s writ against Governor Fayose. We are waiting for this legally and jurisprudentially titillating and ground-breaking suit that will open up new vistas and rip open the yet undiscovered entrails of Section 308 of the 1999 Constitution, which grants immunity to the President, Vice-President, governors and deputy governors.”
