Fayose accuses Buhari of utilizing a corrupt EFCC to attack

07 July 2016, 07:26

Abuja - Outspoken Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose has once again lashed out at President Muhammadu Buhari, this time claiming that he is using an "equally corrupt" Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to do his bidding, Naij reports.

Stating that the President should start the war against corruption within his own party, Fayose kicked back at the EFCC, demanding that they take suspects to court instead of subjecting them to "media trial".

While denying the corruption allegations posed against him, Fayose once again declared that properties registered in his name were bought legitimately and were duly declared according to his assets declaration form.

Stating that money used during his election campaign was sourced legitimately, Fayose has claimed that details of how the money was spent remain his business and should not have to divulged within the public eye.

“Should Nigerians now conclude that EFCC is an appendage of APC? Is the EFCC for investigation of corrupt practices among all Nigerians or members of opposition parties alone?” the Governor questioned.

Meanwhile, the EFCC has revealed details of its fraud case against Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose.

According to a previous Naij report, an affidavit filed by the anti-graft agency alleges that N1.21 billion was paid out of N2.26 billion to the account of Slyvan Mcnamara Limited.

The company, which has suspected links to the son of former Defense Minister Musiliu Obinakoro, was allegedly traced to Fayose through a new generation bank.
