Governor Fayose Opens Up on How Much He Has in His Bank Account

Governor of Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose, who has been at loggerheads with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) recently over embezzlement and money laundering charges which led to the freezing of his bank accounts.

The governor on the other hand has also challenged the commission to make his bank statement public as he says that the billions found in his account is false as he says that there is only N382 million in his account. 

According to a statement yesterday by his Chief Press Secretary, Idowu Adelusi,the governor said this while featuring on an interview programme on a radio station, Fresh FM.He said 

“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.
