Arms Deal: Tell The People How You Collected N1.4bn And Bought A House In Abuja, APC To Fayose

Published

The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State has challenged Governor Ayodele Fayose to tell the people of the state how much he got from the N1.4 billion allegedly collected from the Office of the National Security Adviser by a former minister from the South-West to prosecute the Ekiti governorship election of June 2014.

A statement by the Publicity Secretary, Taiwo Olatunbosun, quoted the party to have said it was clear that Fayose collected part of the arms cash that was mindlessly diverted by former National Security Adviser, Col Sambo Dasuki (rtd).

“We are aware that Fayose at that time acquired a N750 million building in a choice area of Abuja from the proceeds of this fund,” the APC said.

“We are equally aware that Fayose submitted a bill of N30 billion to the then President Goodluck Jonathan as the amount he would require to unseat then Governor Kayode Fayemi.

“A certain amount was approved for the project out of which the soldiers, who were used to rig the election, were paid as well as INEC officials who released the soft copies of sensitive materials to Fayose to enable him have advantage over other candidates,” Olatunbosun explained.

“We are demanding that Governor Fayose should come out and tell Ekiti people how much he received from the Armsgate money and the property he acquired with the fund while we also call on the EFCC to beam its searchlight on Fayose to know how much is traceable to him and a governor in a neighbouring state who coordinated the disbursements of the funds with which the Ekiti election was rigged with the connivance of the military,” Adelusi said.

However, in a swift response, Fayose, through his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Idowu Adelusi said if the APC is sure of what it is saying and has a very clear evidence, it should submit it to the EFCC instead of making noise about.

“Let it be known to the APC that nothing can stop Governor Ayo Fayose from criticizing the misrule and archaic policies of President Muhammadu Buhari.

“Fayose is prepared more than ever before to continue to represent the voiceless Nigerians and we cannot watch it and allow Buhari to turn Nigeria into a fascist state.”

I Received Vision That I Would Be Governor – Oyetola

Gboyega Oyetola

Governor of Osun State, Gboyega Oyetola has stated that God revealed to him in a dream that he would be Governor of the State long before he joined the race.

He revealed this while speaking at a service held to commemorate the second anniversary of his administration at the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Osun Province 1 Headquarters, Osogbo, on Sunday.

Oyetola said, “I am ordinarily not one who sees visions but on two occasions, I had a strange encounter. Imagine the son of an Imam, receiving a Christian song in a dream. That was my encounter.

“All I could remember on both occasions was the last line of the song which says ‘IleriOluwa ni lati se’. Outside of that dream, I had never heard the song before. When the impression was heavy on my heart, I called one of my friends to ask him about the song, and he told me the song was the Track 2 of Timi Oshikoya’s album.

“He went out and got me the album and immediately I started listening to the track, my consciousness was restored and then I had an understanding of what God was saying to me. That revelation has continued to give me confidence of victory each time I am faced with legal and political battles since becoming governor.”

Anyim Backed Out Of Defection Over Visit to Buhari – Umahi

Dave Umahi

Governor of Ebonyi State, Dave Umahi has claimed that a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari stopped former Senate President, Pius Anyim and National Assembly members from the state from defecting to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

He made the claim on Sunday while speaking during an APC stakeholders’ meeting at the Bouquet Lodge, Old Government House, Abakaliki, Ebonyi State.

Umahi claimed that Anyim who served as Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) in the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan, and others refused to defect because he outsmarted them all.

“They were planning to ambush me, but it is difficult to catch the air,” he said.

The governor insisted that he consulted all the National Assembly members and the elders from the state about his defection from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), adding that they all agreed to the defection arrangement.

“Let me tell you, I’m not afraid of anybody but I respect everybody. But I have said that if God sent me, this will be the last fight in this state,” he said.

Umahi added: “All these people that came together to fight me, they collect contracts, they collect monthly pay, they collect vehicles. And when they are asked to bring people that worked for us, they will bring their wives, children and relations.

“Now, they are dressing words for us. We are in chapter one, in Chapter two, I will publish all that I have done for the leaders of this state.”
