Ayodele Fayose, Governor of Ekiti State, has told the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) that he is not afraid of what will happen to him after he leaves office.
Fayose stated this in response to the request by the commission to place him on a watch list.
Fayose had written a letter to the EFCC notifying it of his intention to submit himself the next day after he leaves office, which is Tuesday, October 16, 2018 at 1pm to “clarify issues or answer questions”.
The commission is said to have filed a request to place Fayose on a watch list, following the suspicion that “he may likely leave the country”.
Meanwhile, Fayose, who described EFCC’s action as “petty”, restated his determination to face the commission.
A tweet via his handle read: “@officialEFCC putting my name on watch list after notification of my coming is not only political but petty.
I’m not among those who are afraid to face tomorrow.
Nobody is God. They should expect me on October 16, 2018. I will remain in PDP not minding their intimidation”.
