7 Takeaways From Gov Fayose’s Statement

Published

on

Ayodele-Fayose-new

Gov Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state, who is being investigated by the Economic And Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC for allegedly receiving money from Sambo Dasuki, former national security adviser (NSA), through Musiliu Obanikoro, ex-minister of defence.

He has now challenged the agency to publish details of his frozen accounts with Zenith Bank. Fayose has also criticized Pres Buhari’s government for continually blaming the previous administration. The governor made these claims in a statement released on Sunday via Idowu Adelusi, his chief press secretary.

He threw shade at the government of the day

It is only a lazy worker that would complain about his tools

President Barack Obama, despite what he inherited from the Republican administration, still made the difference.

He inquired about the recovered funds

The problem we have is not about the vehicle, but the driver. Let them give account of what they have realized as revenue, as recovered funds and the billions of dollars found in people’s houses all over the world. We want to know what has become of the funds.”

His challenges in Ekiti

“What I am facing in Ekiti is a war of the elite and incidentally, it is the masses that vote people into office

“We know some failed Ekiti politicians who now resume daily in EFCC office to concoct stories and give same to their commissioned newspapers to publish.‎ It is only one or two newspapers that always have their so-called exclusive stories and they follow the same pattern.

He also threw some shade at the EFCC

“The EFCC is only engaged i‎n mind games. They think they can wear me out, that is not possible as God is on my side because I stand for the truth. EFCC has not told Nigerians how money was wired to me.‎ They must be responsible to do investigation that would not be a media issue. What the EFCC and their APC collaborators are trying to do is to set the people of the state against me and they have failed.

“In my two accounts that they have frozen, I have N300 million in the fixed deposit one and N82 million in the other. Both accounts and my properties were duly declared in my Asset Declaration Form. They are treading the same 2006 path and they will fail woefully by the grace of God. What they did in 2006, the Supreme Court declared it illegal and I came back to office exactly eight years after. It means one of us lied and was mischievous

Emphasized the need for an active opposition

“We cannot all be in the APC. If we are, then we are no longer practising democracy. There must be opposition and that is to keep those in government on their toes, but if you now make silencing the opposition as your main programme, then you are short-changing the people.

Speaks for the average Nigeria

“The people are hungry; they are ravaged by poverty and what you think is the best step to take is to kill the voice of the opposition. If the situation was this bad, the PDP would have been removed from office long time ago.

The anticorruption fight is a witch hunt

“After the APC leaders failed to stop my inauguration, get me impeached, they know that they will still lose again in 2018. What they are trying to do is to create a wedge between me and the people of the state who love me.
