‘Fayose planning to run away… keep an eye on him’ – APC tells EFCC

Following outgoing Governor of Ekiti State, Peter Ayodele Fayose’s, letter to the Economic And Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), informing them that he would honor their invitation, a day after he steps down as Governor on October 16, the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti has issued its own statement.

The APC alleges that Fayose is planning to sneak out of the country when his tenure elapses, adding that his letter should not be believed, as it is “suspicious” and “diversionary”.

The APC Spokesman in Ekiti State, Mr. Taiwo Olatunbosun, said the letter was a decoy for Fayose to “seek safe landing to enable him run away from the country”.

“The letter to the EFCC can be used by Fayose as a distraction and diversionary tactic to pave way for his escape from the country, thereby running away from justice,” he said in a statement.

“Fayose’s promise to appear before the anti-graft agency on the handover day sounds too good to be true and highly suspicious

“We therefore recommend that he be put under serious close surveillance since he is morally and duty bound to account for many of his recklessly corrupt practices that have made him billions of state money richer than the state itself

“No matter how smart Fayose thinks he is and no matter how fast he thinks he can run, the long arm of the law must catch up with him to refund our collective wealth and money for the benefit of all in our dear state, Ekiti.”
