Fayose says he will make himself available to EFCC on October 16

Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has written a letter to the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC), stating his desire to make himself available for questioning on October 16.

The letter was personally signed by Fayose with the title: “Notification of my decision to make myself available in your office to clarify issue(s) or answer questions on issues within my knowledge”.

In the letter, he stated that, ‘for some time now, including but not limited to freezing of my accounts and attempts to secure temporary forfeiture of my properties.”  He said these were “indicative of the commission’s desire to have me clarify some issues or answer some questions but for the immunity I enjoy under Section 308 of the 1999 Constitution as the sitting governor of Ekiti State.”

Fayose stated in the letter: “I wish to inform you that my term of office pursuant to which I enjoy immunity against investigation and prosecution under the above provision shall lapse by effluxion of time on Monday, 15th October, 2018. As a responsible citizen of our great country, who believes in the rule of law, I wish to inform you of my decision to make myself available in your office on Tuesday, 16th October 2018 at 1pm to clarify issues or answer questions within my knowledge. Kindly confirm the suitability of the above date or indicate by return, the commission’s convenient date.”
