Supreme Court frees Oyinlola’s lawyer Kalejaiye 4 years after he lost SAN title

Friday, March 15, remains a great day for Kunle Kalejaye, the lawyer who was stripped of his Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) title as a result of his alleged activities in relation to election issues as counsel to Olagunsoye Oyinlola, a former governor of Osun state.

Legit.ng learnt that the Supreme Court made its ruling setting aside the decision of the Legal Practitioners Disciplinary Committee (LPDC) of May 21, 2015.

The decision of the LPDC had disbarred Kule Kalejaye for allegedly engaging in what the body called professional misconduct.

The Nation reports that Kalejaye, once a lawyer to the Peoles Democratic Party (PDP) and then governor of Osun state, Olagunsoye Oyinlola, was allegedly found to have engaged in an ex-parte confidential communication with the chairman of the 2008 Osun governorship tribunal, Justice Thomas Naron.

He appealed the ruling of the LDPC.

The report said a five-man panel of the Supreme Court granted a unanimous judgment that upheld Kalejaye’s appeal on the grounds that the trial procedure at the LDPC was flawed.

Legit.ng earlier reported how Oyinlola, a chairman of the steering committee of the Coalition of United Political Parties, recently claimed that President Muhammadu Buhari deceived Nigerians with a promise to restructure the country if elected in the 2015 election.

Vanguard reports that Prince Oyinlola urged Nigerians to vote massively for presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, in order to bring back prosperity, peace and a stable economy.

The former governor made this known at the Peoples Democratic Party, presidential rally in Osogbo, Osun state.
