Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has told the Federal Government to

pay attention to hunger and suffering ravaging Nigeria and its people and

leave him alone, saying; “This project 'Fayose must be implicated at all

cost' will definitely not put food on the tables of Nigerians and for all

I care, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and its

collaborators can keep running from pillar to post while I keep delivering

good governance to Ekiti and its people.”
The governor, who dismissed the reported claim that former Minister of

State for Defence, Senator Musiliu Obanikoro confessed to the EFCC that he

received fund from the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA)

under Col Sambo Dasuki (rtd) to fund his election, said; “We have gone

pass this stage of media trial, EFCC should rather keep its gun powder

dry, when we get to the bridge, we will cross it. They said more than this

in the 2006 poultry scam blackmail, despite that, I am the governor

today.”
According to a statement signed by his Special Assistant on Public

Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Governor Fayose said he was

only reacting just to fulfil all righteousness because Nigerians were more

interested in having food on their tables, adding that; “those who

arranged the dramatic and compromised return of Senator Obanikoro to

Nigeria obviously did so in continuation of their project 'Fayose must be

implicated at all cost' but I am not bothered because my election was

legitimately funded.
“However, if this is why they are intimidating judges and the judiciary,

it won't work as far as my own matter is concerned as no one can play God.

“As far as I am concerned, I am busy here in Ekiti attending to the

welfare and well-being of my people. I won't be distracted.”

While challenging the EFCC to also beam its searchlights on the funding of

APC elections, Governor Fayose said; “Since we are now in the era in which

financial assistance from Nigerians to fund elections is being

criminalised, the international community, especially those funding EFCC

must insist that the commission probes the funding of APC elections before

further funds are released to the commission.”
