The Supreme Court today terminated the tenure of the Governors of Kogi, Cross River, Bayelsa, Sokoto, and Adamawa. Na wa o! In a judgment read by Justice Walter Onnoghen, the seven-member Supreme Court panel ruled that the tenure of the five Governors expired last year (May 2011) and declared their offices vacant. The Speakers of the Houses of Assembly in the five states took over as acting governors, pending the conduct of fresh elections in the states.
