Buhari should leave me alone and fight hunger in Nigeria - Fayose | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f


Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has told President Muhammadu Buhari and the Federal Government to pay attention to hunger and suffering ravaging Nigeria and its people and leave him alone to concentrate on governance.

He said desperate efforts by the Federal Government to implicate him at all cost using the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and other government agencies would not prevent him from delivering good governance to Ekiti and its people.

The governor said these while reacting to media reports that a former Minister of State for Defence, Senator Musiliu Obanikoro, confessed to the EFCC that he gave him N2.3bn in the run-up to the Ekiti 2014 governorship election.

The EFCC said the money was part of funds received from the Office of the National Security Adviser under Col Sambo Dasuki (retd.) to fund his election.

“This project ‘Fayose must be implicated at all cost’ will definitely not put food on the tables of Nigerians and for all I care, the EFCC and its collaborators can keep running from pillar to post while I keep delivering good governance to Ekiti and its people.

“We have gone pass this stage of media trial, EFCC should rather keep its
gun powder dry, when we get to the bridge, we will cross it. They said more than this in the 2006 poultry scam blackmail, despite that, I am the governor today.”

Fayose, according to a statement signed by his Special Assistant on Public
Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, said he decided to react just to fulfil all righteousness because Nigerians were more interested in having food on their tables.

“Those who arranged the dramatic and compromised return of Senator Obanikoro to Nigeria obviously did so in continuation of their project ‘Fayose must be implicated at all cost’ but I am not bothered because my election was legitimately funded.

“However, if this is why they are intimidating judges and the judiciary, it won’t work as far as my own matter is concerned as no one can play God.

“As far as I am concerned, I am busy here in Ekiti attending to the welfare and well-being of my people. I won’t be distracted.”

Fayose challenged the EFCC to also beam its searchlights on the funding of the All Progressives Congress elections since financial assistance from Nigerians to fund elections was being criminalised.

“The international community, especially those funding EFCC must insist that the commission probes the funding of APC elections before further funds are released to the commission,” he added.
