The Immediate former Ekiti Governor, Ayodele Fayose has said that he will never compromise his standard concerning the case of alleged fraud brough against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
Fayose stated this when he stormed the complex of the Ekiti State House of Assembly after he was summoned at its Thursday plenary session to appear before its Committee on Public Account over alleged misappropriation of local government funds while in office.
Speaking to journalist after meeting with the Speaker Mr Funminiyi Afuye where he threw more light on the alleged financial misappropriation said he came to Ekiti House of Assembly to answer any question they asked him.
“I am here and if they need any clarification, I can answer because a clear conscience fear no foe,” he said.
When asked if he was given a soft landing by the Federal Government on his case before the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), he said, the Fayose you know won’t compromise standard. I won’t follow the multitude to sin.
It was gathered that Fayose who was accompanied by Hon. Henry Aladeyelu, Hon. Sam Omotosho, Hon. Dayo Akinleye and his media aide, Mr. Lere Olayinka stormed the premises of the assembly at about 1:15pm and went straight to the office of Speaker.
He was received by the Speaker and the Deputy Speaker, Hakeem Jamiu and they met with him behind closed doors for about 40 minutes.
It could be recalled that the Assembly also summoned the former chairman of the Association of Local Government Chairmen, ALGON, Mr. Dapo Olagunju, the former Commissioner for Local Government Affairs, Mr. Kola Kolade and all the former 16 local government areas chairmen.
According to Fayose, he received the summon on him via television and decided to come to see the lawmakers.
“Let me say that I got their summon through the news media and I called the Speaker last night to confirm whether it is true or not and he confirmed it. You know my style when EFCC wanted me, I told them I am here.
“Today too I have come to the Ekiti State House of Assembly to tell them, I am here and if they need any clarification, I can answer.
“I am ready to give account of my stewardship. That is why I am here.”
