  • Fayose Writes EFCC, Surrenders Self

    Ekiti State Governor Ayo Fayose has signified intention to answer questions on management of funds under his watch.

    Fayose, on Wednesday, revealed that he had sent a letter to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to inform them of his availability to answer their questions a day after his exit from government.

    He shared a photo of the letter he sent to the anti-graft agency on his Twitter handle, @GovAyoFayose.

    The letter, which was dated 10th September 2018, and stamped ‘received by the EFCC’ on Tuesday partly read;

    “I wish to inform you that my term of office pursuant to which I enjoy immunity against investigation and prosecution under the above provision shall lapse by effluxion of time on Monday, October 15th, 2018.

    As a responsible citizen of our great country, who believes in the Rule of Law, I wish to inform you of my decision to make myself available in your office on Tuesday, 16th October 2018 at 1pm to clarify issues or answer questions within my knowledge.”

    Fayose promised to make himself available to the Commission barely 24 hours after the expiry of his constitutional immunity.

    He is expected to vacate the state’s number one seat for his predecessor in office, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, on October 15 as the latter will be sworn to office the following day.
