Justice Danjuma held that the former deputy governor was not accorded fair hearing before he was impeached.

Meanwhile, Alhaji Ali Olanusi has hailed the judgement of the appellate court that quash his impeachment as the deputy governor of Ondo State.

Alhaji Olanusi described the judiciary as the hope of a common man.

He thanked the people of Ondo State for their support through out the period of the legal battle.
