“He is not afraid of anything. What are they going to do to him. Is EFCC the court of law?” He asked.

According to Fayose’s spokesperson, Lere Olayinka, he said that the governor is not afraid and would not abscond from the country.

The EFCC had tweeted on Sunday that it would get at Fayose when he hands over power in October to answer questions on the $1.3 billion fraud allegations.

Fayose, of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), is slated to hand over power to Kayode Fayemi, who won Saturday’s governorship poll in Ekiti after he defeated Prof. Kolapo Olusola-Eleka of the PDP.

The state was APC until 2014 when Fayemi, then governor from 2010-2014, lost his first re-election bid to Fayose.

Mr Fayose won the June 2014 election in a landslide, defeating Mr Fayemi in all the 16 local government areas of the state.



  1. Even if he wants to run, where will he run to with all these anti-corruption Treaties my beloved PMB has been signing with various countries?
    Ofcourse, EFCC is not the Court but when EFCC drags Ayodele Fayose to the Court, those Judges he slapped when he was a governor, will then have the opportunity to “ask” him one or two questions!
