Alleged plot to impeach Fayose thickens

22 July 2016, 16:42

Abuja - There is anxiety in the political scene over suggestions that the federal government is planning to impeach Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti state, Naij reports.

The fears that the governor could be impeached soon is partly fuelled by the travails he is going through at the hands of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The anti-graft agency recently froze the personal bank account of the governor over allegations of graft and also confiscated houses worth millions of naira belonging to the governor.

The houses were seized as part of the ongoing investigation into the N1.219 that Fayose allegedly received from the Office of the National Security Adviser when Colonel Sambo Dasuki (retired).

The All Progressives Congress in Ekiti state in a statement on Thursday also dismissed claims by Governor Ayo Fayose that he has been discharged and acquitted by the Federal High Court over an alleged N1.3bn poultry project in 2005.

The state publicity secretary of the party, Taiwo Olatunbosun, said the fraud case instituted against Fayose by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is still pending at the Federal High Court in Ado Ekiti according to News24.

The Economic Financial Crimes Commission had filed the fraud case against the governor in 2005.

The matter has been transferred from Lagos to the Ado Ekiti part of the court for further jurisdiction.

The recent disclosure by the APC has attracted anger from some Nigerians who accused the Buhari administration of trying to impeach Fayose for his criticism against the federal government.
