Alleged graft: Fayose storms Ekiti Assembly

Former Governor of Ekiti state Ayo Fayose  on Friday, paid a surprise to the state House of Assembly, in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital, to answer corruption allegations leveled against him by the house of assembly .

The Assembly had on Thursday invited the former governor defend the allegation of misappropriation of state’s funds.

The former  however  alleged that security personnel and some suspected party thugs of APC attacked his convoy with a view to unleash violence on them, saying: ” Fayemi and the Assembly will have to guarantee my coming the second time for their questioning given him the unwholesome attack on us today in Ekiti.

 Fayose spoke with newsmen after closed door with the Speaker, Hon. Funminiyi Afuye, said: “I got the information about the invitation by noon yesterday (Thursday), and I called the speaker last night to confirm whether it was true and he confirmed. You know my style, when the EFCC wanted me, I told them I’m here. So I have come to the state house of assembly to tell them I’m here and if you have questions, I’m here because clear conscience fears no accusation. If they have anything to ask, I am available.

” I let them know that I am available and ready to answer their questions. So I drove down from Lagos to tell them that there is no hiding place for some of us, so, I am here and ready to give account of my stewardship.

The former governor debunked the rumour that the Federal Government has given him a soft landing regarding the seemingly stalled  EFCC  trial.

He said:  ” Fayose will not compromise standards. I will not follow multitude to sin. I want to believe that selective justice will not help our country. I have condemned severally anyone who says that in Nigeria, when you come to APC then you become a saint. I am telling you, I will never become a member of APC, I will never decamp. If I wanted a soft landing against my party, against my candidate, that would have happened in the past, I stood my ground during the election. So, that is impossible.”
