75 demoted Ogun monarchs seek court intervention

The 75 Coronet monarchs demoted by Ogun State Government have approached the court challenging Governor Dapo Abiodun’s decision to reverse their upgrading, appointments and promotions.
 
In the suit, which joined the Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs; Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs; House of Assembly and the State Attorney General as defendants, the aggrieved monarchs said their upgrading, which took effect from May 13, 2019, is pursuant to Sub-Section (1) & (2) of Section 25 of the Chiefs Law, Laws of Ogun State of Nigeria, 2006.
 
Recall that former Governor Ibikunle Amosun had upgraded the Baales as Coronet Obas of their respective communities at the twilight of his administration, but the Chieftaincy Review Committee set up by Abiodun recommended the reversal of their appointments.
 
In the originating summon, yesterday, the monarchs are seeking an order of interlocutory injunction restraining the defendants either by themselves or through their agents, servants, privies or any other persons acting for them from preventing them from acting, parading or referring to themselves as Coronet Obas, having been earlier upgraded, appointed and promoted by the state government.
  
The claimants are therefore seeking a declaration that the activities and recommendation of the review committee is an afterthought and a nullity.
  
“An order setting aside the purported reversal or revocation of the Claimants upgrading, appointment and promotion as Coronet Obas in Ogun State; an order compelling the Defendants to rescind forthwith the purported reversal and/or revocation of the upgrading, appointments and promotion of the Claimants as Coronet Obas of their respective communities…”
 
The monarchs are also seeking payment by the defendants of all remunerations and entitlements due, but unpaid to each of them over their respective communities from May 13, 2019, when their upgrading took effect till date and thereafter. It was learnt that hearing has been scheduled for April 27, 2020 at an High Court sitting in Abeokuta.
