Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose has expressed his indifference to the ongoing media trial strategies adopted by anti-graft agency, EFCC, against him.Fayose added that the actions and strategies employed by the anti-graft agency and its collaborators in the opposition party, All Progressive Congress, APC would all be exposed at the end of his tenure in 2018.
Fayose, speaking through his Special Assistant on Public Communications and News Media, Lere Olayinka said: “The EFCC did more than this in 2006 but when I challenged their cooked up stories on poultry project in the court, the EFCC failed to substantiate all their allegations against me and their case crumbled like a pack of cards.”
He continued: “If what the EFCC and its collaborators are now relying on is a driver or a source in EFCC that speaking for Zenith Bank, and not the former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (rtd) that they claimed gave the former Minister of State for Defence, Senator Musiliu Obanikoro money to give me, good luck to them.
“The EFCC and its spin doctors can continue to cook up stories and feed their collaborators in the media. The media trial can continue unabated, I am not moved. I am more focused, more resolute, I don’t lose battles. The one that they did in 2006 did not ultimately prevent me from having a second term as governor of Ekiti State and whatever they are doing now will also not stop me from handing over to a Peoples Democratic Party governor in 2018.
“I will meet them in court and the whole world will again listen to their feeble stories as it happened in poultry saga.”
