Aisha Buhari calls Fayose a 'coward'

28 July 2016, 11:21

Abuja - The wife of the president, Aisha Buhari, has referred to Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State as a 'well-known coward.'

Her position is contained in her statement of claims filed before an FCT High Court in the defamation suit challenging Governor Fayose’s allegation linking her with the Harliburton bribery scandal in the United States according to Daily Trust.

Buhari stated that Buhari, has said that Governor Fayose cannot hide under the cover of immunity to avoid prosecution from several alleged criminal offences.

Fayose’s counsel, Mike Ozekhome (SAN), had in a reply to Buhari’s pre-action notice on July 8, stated that under Section 308 of the 1999 Constitution, no civil or criminal action may be brought against the governor while in office, advising her to wait till 2018.

But in the statement filed by her counsel, Ismaila Alasa and Mary Ekpere Eta, the president’s wife cited criminal charges on the murder of one Tunde Omojola, diversion of N1.2bn state funds in 2004 and the invasion of the Ekiti High Court with thugs who allegedly beat up a judge in 2014 as some of the governor’s ‘indiscretions’.

News24 previously reported that Aisha Buhari finally opened up on the reasons why he sued Governor Ayodele Fayose.

Buhari who is suing Fayose for defamation of character over the widely publicized Halliburton scandal, said she took the decision to let the public know that nobody is above the law.

Fayose had alleged that the President’s wife was involved in the Halliburton scandal.
