Publish Dasuki’s statement, my frozen accounts’ details... says fayose

Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose, has chal­lenged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commis­sion (EFCC) to make public the statement it has extracted from the former National Secu­rity Adviser (NSA), Col Sambo Dasuki, in its ongoing probe of money meant for the purchase of arms and the funding of the last general elections in the country.
He also asked the agency to publish his personal accounts it has frozen to let the whole world know what are contained therein.
The governor threw the chal­lenge at the weekend while featuring on an interview pro­gramme on a radio station, Fresh FM monitored in Ado-Ekiti.

The governor sail that by publishing Dasuki’s statement, it would at least show whether the ex-NSA gave money to former Minister of State for Defence, Sen Musiliu Obanikoro or any­body to give him (Fayose).
“What I am facing in Ekiti is a war of the elite and incidentally, it is the masses that vote peo­ple into office. We know some failed Ekiti politicians who now resume daily in EFCC office to concoct stories and give same to their commissioned news­papers to publish. It is only one or two newspapers that always have their so-called exclusive stories and they follow the same pattern.
“The EFCC is only engaged in mind game. They think they can wear me out, that is not possible as God is on my side because I stand for the truth. EFCC has not told Nigerians how money was wired to me. They must be responsible to do investigation that would not be a media issue. What the EFCC and their APC collaborators are trying to do is to set the people of the state against me and they have failed.
“In my two accounts that they have frozen, I have N300 million in the fixed deposit one and N82 million in the other. Both accounts and my proper­ties were duly declared in my Asset Declaration Form. They are treading the same 2006 path and they will fail woefully by the grace of God. What they did in 2006, the Supreme Court declared it illegal and I came back to office exactly eight years after. It means one of us lied and was mischievous,” he said.
Fayose also challenged the APC and its leaders to also tell the people how their own elec­tions were funded, noting that a defector from the PDP to the APC should not suddenly be­come an angel or a saint.
On the June 21, 2014 gover­norship election that brought him to office, Fayose said Dr Kayode Fayemi and APC lead­ers conceded defeat and that both local and international observers described the poll as free and fair.
“After the APC leaders failed to stop my inauguration, get me impeached, they know that they will still lose again in 2018. What they are trying to do is to create a wedge between me and the people of the state who love me. As far as I am concerned, their project is dead on arrival. The voice of the people is the voice of God,” he stated.
