The Speaker of the Ekiti State House of Assembly has revealed why the house resisted the ambush by former governor of the state, Ayodele Fayose.
According to the Speaker who issued a statemen signed by his Special Adviser, Akogun Tai Oguntayo, Fayose’s visit to the house was unannounced
The statement reads in part:
”Just as the Speaker was settling down in his office this afternoon, Mr. Fayose stormed his office with a retinue of pressmen led by his former media aide, Mr Lere Olayinka, who was equally wanted on another alleged fund stealing. The Speaker who was accompanied to his office by two other lawmakers immediately stopped the journalists from entering his office and warned Mr Olayinka against writing any fake report as it’s usual of him.
”When Mr Fayose announced his readiness to the Speaker, he was told to go back and await the official invitation letter from the House of Assembly.
”Rt Hon Afuye, however, stated that the former Governor was accorded his due compliment on arrival at the House of Assembly ”being a former No1 citizen of the State”. He then reiterated that the House cannot be harassed or intimidated by anyone ”as we are poised to investigate the alleged looting of public fund without any fear or favour”.
