N4.745bn Arms Deal: Fayose reacts to Obanikoro's confession | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper

Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has fired back over claims that the former Minister of State for Defence, Mr. Musiliu Obanikoro gave him looted funds to finance his election.



Fayose, who denied the allegations in a statement, said rather than dissipating energy on what he described as “Fayose must be implicated at all cost” project, the Federal Government should “pay attention to hunger and suffering ravaging Nigeria and its people and leave me alone.”

In the statement signed by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Fayose said: “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.”

The statement said, “The governor dismissed the reported claim that former Minister of State for Defence, Senator Musiliu Obanikoro confessed to the EFCC that he received fund from the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA) under Colonel Sambo Dasuki (rtd) to fund his election.”

According to Fayose, “We have gone past 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.”

Governor Fayose said he was “only reacting just to fulfil all righteousness because Nigerians are more interested in having food on their tables,” saying “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.”

    5. Anonymous 2:29 must be the daftest Nigerian so far.
      Very senseless comment from a blockhead.
      You're so daft that you can't see Fayose stylishly trying to dodge this but bet me you, he can't escape this.
      It's the type of Fayose that led us into this mess and they must pay.

  4. Fayose has refused to confirm or reject Obanikoro's confessions rather he claims it is FGN implicating him. Can they implicate you in what you did not do and you will not talk? Fayose tell me

    1. APC wailing wailers make una continue to wail for una foolishness and stupidity. Are you one of those who donated their life savings for Baba's campaign? Sorry ooo!
      Anytime you are hungry just shout Sai Baba! and a all prepared food will drop from sky. Hahahaha! If you go to market and you want to buy anything just shout Sai Baba and they will give you the product free.
      Moreover when next Baba's children will be goun to UN to observe the sessions they will call you to follow them. For fuel, you know that subsidy use to be a fraud so just go to Bar Beach or any river near you and shout Sai Baba.Just put a host into it and fill your car tank. If you don't have a car just shout sai Baba in any public vehicle you board and they will collect little or no money from you.

  8. How is fayose case going to end. On the night of the expiration of his tenure, he will cross the border to Benin Republic and take a plane from there to dubai. I was thinking Koro will never return to this country again only for me to be surprised he is in EFCC custody so no where fayose will run to even If he went to Jupiter, he will later learn that "there is no place like home."

  9. Obanikoro is a true Yoruba man. Blackmail your brother to get freedom.
    I am tired of hearing Fayose this, Fayose that.
    I wish some MUMU will see that this regime want Fayose's head at all cost.
    Never trust a Yoruba man, they will always be true to their name.

    1. Yeah Matosky. The yoruba man will speak the truth when confronted with facts. The Yorubas are always the first to confront their thieving sons and daughters before anyone else. That's why you will see Fayose's greatest critics are Yorubas. We don't praise ourselves enough though but we most definitely will not support a thief. Including Tinubu.
      I understand its the opposite in your part of the country. Thats a shame as it is unanfrican to support thieves and cheats

  11. The same media and unsubstantiated trial APC is being accused of, my Country people also are dwelling on...So,everybody accused of one thing or another is automatically guilty as far as APC and this bunch of ignorants are concerned...Is that what the rule of law preaches...? Well, let's all continue to wallow in the abject poverty APC government has put us into.Well,as events are unfolding....

  13. Do you know that you are a very stupid person? Sometimes I wonder the kind of human being you are. I always pity you whenever you comments here honestly, are you doing this deliberately or this is whom you are.
    What are you gaining from all this your stupid comments, does it make you feel better.
    Does it mean that you are still bitter because GEJ didn't win the election or are you bitter because you love corruption or that you don't believe that there's corruption in Nigeria ever since.
    What made you believe and trust Fayose if not your bitterness to the present government.
    My dear friend that your attitude towards the present Government will never help you and it will never solve Nigerian problem.
    I know none all those looters know you exist why stressing yourself about them. Quit defending looters and save yourself from having High Blood pressure.

  14. I am a proud Igbo man. My advice to my fellow brothers and sisters, stop supporting Fayose you all are not gaining anything from that. Stop supporting criminals and looters they don't who you are. Why are you all drinking Panadol for Fayose's headache. It doesn't make sense. Ekiti state will never be Igbo land my brothers. Let's call bad thing bad thing, we don't need to associates ourselves with criminals and looters. Biko nu.. What do we really want Igbos? Is it Biafra or Ekiti state or looters. GEJ is our adopted brother not our real brother and he doesn't care about us, what did we really achieved or gained from his administration. GEJ administration is gone and it's not coming back so let's get over it, after all we gained nothing from it. Let focus on what we want. Ka Chineke mezie okwu.

  20. Fayose vs Obanikoro Act 1 Scene 2. But governor, you did not even touch the subject matter. Did you or did you not have anything to do with it?

  21. The cat is already let out of the bag.When Obanikoro had not come back,Fayose kept blabbing and swearing with all the Gods that he had nothing to do with him,and that he was sure that Obanikoro can never admit to the allegations as even further corroborated by the state secretary of the PDP at the time Mr Aluko TKO.With the illusion that Obanikoro had finally escaped and would never return, our loud mouthed pretender and fraudster par excellence Mr Fayose kept claiming innocence. Now with his doomsday nearing with every tick of the clock, Mr Obanikoro has just arrived to confirm the obvious. No where to hide any longer.He sought a subterfuge in the Zenith Bank sponsorship, the Bank quickly dissociated itself from the deal,he stinged the Bank back in his unique but the Bank will not budge, now we should be wiser in this part of the country as to know who exactly this man Fayose is.He had started campaigning now for his potential successor. God forbid bad things, we shall all be at alert so that this gangster does not rule us again, not even while in jail for all the atrocities committed against our ignorant citizens.
