Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti has once again written the Economic and Financial Commission (EFCC) over the investigation about him. Fayose disclosed this on his Twitter feed on Tuesday, September 18.
Recall that the governor had recently written the anti graft agency intimating them of his plans to come and submit himself for investigation immediately he leaves office.
In a swift reply, the EFCC asked the governor to make himself available for questioning on Thursday, September 20 and not to wait to end of his tenure.
The Ekiti state governor's tenure ends on October 16 and he is being investigated for alleged abuse of office, money laundering, among others.
"Notwithstanding its demonstration of hate, prejudice, persecution and partiality, I again wrote the @officialEFCC today, that I will be available on October 16. But if their investigation cannot wait till October 16, investigators can meet me in my office in Ado Ekiti on Sept 20," Fayose said in the tweet.
In response to the letter also, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) asked the Nigeria customs service to place him on its watch list.
NAIJ.com also reported that the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti on Wednesday, September 12, described as suspicious and diversionary the offer by the outgoing governor, Ayodele Fayose, to voluntarily surrender himself to the EFCC on the day he would be vacating office.
