Court Declares Change To ‘State Of Osun’ Illegal

An Osun State High Court sitting in Ilesa has declared that the change of name of the state to “State of Osun” by Governor RAUF AREGBESOLA is illegal, null and void.

Delivering the judgment on Thursday, Justice YINKA AFOLABI ruled that the law and its makers were unknown to the 1999 Constitution.

In the judgment which lasted more than one hour, the judge chided Governor AREGBESOLA for deliberately and singlehandedly renaming the state, an act which he says was contrary to the known norms and the nation’s constitution.
