RE: FALSEHOOD CIRCULATING IN THE MEDIA CONCERNING LEGAL REPRESENTATION IN SUIT NO: FHC/ABJ/CS/395/2016 BETWEEN PRINCE BIYI POROYE & ORS VS INEC & PDP
It has come to our notice that the Governor of Ondo State, Dr. Olusegun Mimiko has made statements publicized on the electronic media, including Ondo State Radiovision Corporation (OSRC) and the social media, among others, that Mr. Olagoke Fakunle, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) acted in this matter as counsel to both Plaintiffs (Prince Biyi Poroye & others and the 2nd Defendant, PDP).
That statement is absolutely false and incorrect. Our counsel in the case was Dr. Alex Izinyon, SAN. At no time whatsoever, did we engage or consult with Mr. Olagoke Fakunle, SAN, concerning this matter.
For the avoidance of any possible doubt, the Certified True Copy (CTC) of the record of court exhibited here shows the names of counsel to the parties.
We hereby advise the general public to disregard this obviously false statement.
Prince Biyi Poroye
Chairman, Ondo State PDP
