Fayose replies EFCC, says he isn’t afraid of tomorrow , won’t run away
. Vows never to dump PDP
By Steve Oko
Gov. Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has told the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) that he would not sneak out of the country at the expiration of his tenure on October 16.
This is coming on the heals of the letter by EFCC to Customs, Immigration, and other security agencies requesting them to place Fayose on security watch to avoid his possible escape from the country before the expiration of his tenure.
But Fayose who spoke through his Special Adviser on New Media, Mr. Lere Olayinka, said it was petty for the anti graft agency to place him on security watch when he had already told it he would report to its office a day after leaving office.
Fayose further said the federal government should not think it could succeed in coercing him to dump the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the All Progressive Congress (APC).
He said no amount of harassment , intimidation or persecution would make him defect to APC by force.
Fayose said he was ready to make any sacrifice in defense of Nigeria’s wobling democracy which he noted had been in danger under APC watch.
Below is a full text of the statement made available to Wawa News Global:
“EFCC, when a woman is being brought to you as a wife, you don’t have to peep through the window to see her.
” As I said in my letter, Insha Allah, I will be in your office on October 16, a day after the expiration of my tenure.
“EFCC putting my name on watch list after notification of my coming is not only political but petty. I’m not among those who are afraid to face tomorrow. Nobody is God.
“They should expect me on October 16, 2018.
“Iwill remain in PDP not minding their intimidation.”
