Fayose urges Buhari to prosecute Yobe REC for allegedly taking N15m bribe

16 October 2015, 20:48

Ado Ekiti - Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has called for the trial of the Yobe State Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Abu Zarma, over the N15 million bribe he was alleged to have received to influence the April 11 Yobe State governorship election, reports Premium Times.

The governor said doing otherwise will make nonsense of President Muhammadu Buhari’s avowed fight against corruption.
