Ekiti airport: Group drags govt to court, seeks financial details


Members of the Ekiti Patriotic Consultative Forum (EPCF) have dragged the Ekiti State Government to the State High Court, Ado -Ekiti, the state capital, over the Ekiti Cargo Airport.

The group is seeking an order of Mandamus compelling the state government to release to it all documents, including the financial records and loans, relating to the airport project.


The motion – ex parte for the request for the order of Mandamus, was filed before the State High Court on 28th March, 2024, in suit No- HAD//352m/2024 , between the group and the government.

The group listed as defendants in the yet-to-be-assigned suit are: the governor; Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice and Accountant-General of the state.


The group disclosed this in a statement and court processes made available to journalists in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital by its lead counsel Oluwagbenga Babawibe.

He said his law firm had since November 22, last year, written a letter to the government, through the Secretary to the State Government, requesting for all the said documents, but without any action.


According to him, in the letter, the group gave a seven-day ultimatum for the government to respond, failing which it threated to approach the court.


He listed the documents being demanded as: certified true copy of the entire contracts, including information on the loans obtained for the project, and information on all funds, disbursed on the project so far, from the treasury of the state.
