Former Ekiti State governor, Ayo Fayose, says he is being targeted by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) ahead of the general elections.
He stated that the agency was after him and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar over “election money”.
Fayose said this via his Twitter account Thursday night.
The tweet reads: “Just heard that some officials of @officialEFCC are in Ekiti to invade my residence in Afao Ekiti early morning tomorrow.
“They are coming to search my house for @atiku election money. @officialEFCC, I’m here and waiting.”
President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC) will slug it out with Atiku on Saturday.
Earlier, the ruling party raised alarm of cash for votes in circulation.
The party claimed the PDP had ordered distribution of money across the country.
A statement by National Publicity Secretary, Lanre Issa-Onilu, said: ‘We caution Nigerians and all involved in the electoral process not to be influenced by huge money the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is moving around to buy votes and compromise the system.
“Our future should not be mortgaged to the leaders of PDP who are using our commonwealth they stole over 16 years to seek a return to power.”
