Mines and steel development minister Kayode Fayemi did not appear before a commission probing his administration as governor of Ekiti state, citing a pending suit he instituted challenging the commission’s legality and constitutionality.

His lawyer Akin Olujinmi wrote the commission chairman to warn that the decision to proceed with sitting and summoning Fayemi inspite of the pending suit was contempt of court.

"In the light of the pending case including our client’s motion for interlocutory injunction, Your Lordship is under clear duty to stay action on the activities of your commission until the pending case is determined. To do otherwise is to commit contempt of court which is redressible by an order of committal to prison,” he said.

“We hope in the light of the forgoing, it will not be rendered necessary for our client to test the efficacy of the law against your commission, which definitely will be an embarrassment to your commission. We are sending a copy of this letter to the court before which the case is pending in Ado-Ekiti,” the letter added.
