I’m coming to you on October 16 as a responsible citizen - Fayose writes EFCC





I’m coming to you on October 16 as a responsible citizen - Fayose writes EFCC









  By  Eric  Patrick,






Governor
Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has written to the Economic and Financial
Crimes Commission (EFCC) notifying the agency that he will make himself
available to it on Tuesday, October 16, 2018. In the letter personally
signed by Governor Fayose, he said he was notifying the agency of his
decision to make himself available to the EFCC “to clarify issue(s) or
answer questions on issues within my knowledge.”









Fayose,
in the letter dated September 10, and addressed to the chairman of the
EFCC, said his desire to submit to the commission was hinged “on several
and serial actions of your commission for some time now, including but
not limited to freezing of my accounts and attempts to secure temporary
forfeiture of my properties.”





 He said these were “indicative of the
commission’s desire to have me clarify some issues or answer some
questions but for the immunity I enjoy under Section 308 of the 1999
Constitution as the sitting governor of Ekiti State.”





 Fayose stated in the letter: “I wish to
inform you that my term of office pursuant to which I enjoy immunity
against investigation and prosecution under the above provision shall
lapse by effluxion of time on Monday, 15th October, 2018.





“As a
responsible citizen of our great country, who believes in the rule of
law, I wish to inform you of my decision to make myself available in
your office on Tuesday, 16th October 2018 at 1pm to clarify issues or
answer questions within my knowledge.

“Kindly confirm the suitability of the above date or indicate by return, the commission’s convenient date.”





A
stamp on a copy of the letter, entitled “Notification of my decision to
make myself available in your office to clarify issue(s) or answer
questions on issues within my knowledge”, indicated that it was received
in the office of the EFCC chairman on Tuesday, September 11, 2018.






Governor
Fayose, who has been in a battle of wits with the anti-graft agency and
had also been in and out of courts with the commission over his
personal and state’s finances. 
His
tenure as governor of Ekiti State would elapse on October 16, when he
is expected to hand over government to Dr Kayode Fayemi.
