Fayose’s Commissioners May Spend Holiday in EFCC Custody

Fayose’s Commissioners May Spend Holiday in EFCC Custody
  • PublishedSeptember 30, 2017

The Ekiti State Commissioner for Finance, Chief Toyin Ojo, and the Accountant General, Mrs. Yemisi Owolabi, may spend the prolonged holiday in the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission as a result of an alleged involvement in the diversion of N7bn, a part of the N11bn bailout fund which the Ekiti State government got from the Federal government.

Governor Fayose, in a statement by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Mr. Lere Olayinka, said it was obvious that “the hawks around President Muhammadu Buhari” were afraid of the governor’s declaration for the 2019 presidential election.

“The EFCC is obviously living up to its status as the attack dog of the All Progressives Congress government, but the Ekiti State Government, under Governor Ayodele Fayose, cannot be intimidated.”

Olayinka said the arrest was carried out with a view to embarking on another round of media trial against the governor and his government.
