Fayose dares EFCC to publish accounts

25 July 2016, 09:10

Abuja - Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose has criticised the refusal by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to make public a statement by former National Security Advisor, Sambo Dasuki in its investigation into the mismanagement of funds meant to purchase arms, Vanguard reports.

The funds were meant for the purchase of arms in the fight against Boko Haram, meanwhile Fayose also challenged the anti-graft agency to publish his personal accounts records to lay bare the contents therein.

"Dasuki’s statement, will at least show whether the ex-NSA gave money to former Minister of State for Defence, Senator Musiliu Obanikoro or anybody to give me," Fayose said.

News24 Nigeria reported that there were suggestions that the federal government were planning to impeach Fayose due to the current investigations into him by the EFCC.

The ongoing investigation centres around the N1.219 that Fayose allegedly received from the Office of the National Security Adviser when Colonel Sambo Dasuki was in office.

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.
