Fayose Challenges EFCC, ICPC: Come and Scrutiny My Books


Ekiti State Governor has challenged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission  (EFCC) and the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related matters Commission (ICPC) to come and scrutinize the financial dealings of his government.

Fayose, who threw the challenge during the flag off of the proposed ultra modern Oja Oba Market, which his government demolished last year, declared that a man with good intentions fear no foes.

He said he has always carried out his actions with strict adherence to the laws of the land.

“I know that I have so many enemies and that is why I have been following due process in all my dealings. There are enemies for me when I sleep and when I wake up , so I have to be careful. I don’t want my enemies to latch on technicality to get at me”, he said.

He promised that all the market men and women, who had suffered as a result of the demolition will have cause to rejoice with him after the completion of the project.

“It is always very difficult when structures like this were being demolished. But it takes a leader with great heart to take a bold step like this. What Ekiti needs is a bold leader and not a weakling, we don’t need a weakling.

“I am a builder, who God had sent to help Ekiti and that exactly I shall do. But it is only a state like Ekiti where people would want to bring down a builder at all cost.

“They are criticizing my government on daily basis, they are free to do so. But I want to emphasize that I won’t be distracted by their criticisms no matter how tempting”, Fayose stated.
