Dr. Kayode Fayemi has described the outgoing Ekiti state Governor, Ayodele Fayose’s act to surrender to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC after handing over in October as insincere and fake.
Wole Olujobi, spokesman of the Ekiti governor-elect said this in reaction to the letter by Fayose addressed to Ibrahim Magu, the EFCC chairman that he would be make himself available to the anti-graft agency on October 16 for questioning on alleged money laundering case.
Reacting to the governor’s letter which is dated September 10, Olujobi said it is a decoy “to pull a surprise”.
The spokesman said Ekiti people are wise and would not be deceived by Fayose’s “ostrich game”.
“If you know Fayose very well, when Fayose greets you good morning, you can be sure that it is evening, maybe
7pm,” Fayemi’s spokesman said.
“When he makes any declarative statement, that people would have thought he means business, I am telling you it is another ploy by him to do otherwise.
“When he wanted to escape in 2016, he went round the whole capital city of Ado Ekiti, asking his supporters to meet him at Fajuyi area of the town for a rally, his supporters mobilized themselves to Fajuyi expecting Fayose. The next thing they heard was that Fayose had escaped inside the boot of his car.
“He hid inside the boot and escaped from Ado-Ekiti while his supporters that he called for a rally at Fajuyi area were
anxiously waiting for him.
“So, we don’t believe he is sincere about the letter he wrote to the EFCC, its another kind of decoy to pull a surprise, a surprise that is fake.”
