Immediate past governor of Ekiti State Ayodele Fayose whose immunity ended Midnight Monday has said he will be going to the office of the Economic and Financial Crime, (EFCC) with his English and Yoruba Bibles together with pillowcase and Bedclothes as he reports to their Office today Tuesday.
Fayose will be answering to allegations that he received about N1.3bn from the Office of the National Security Adviser, NSA through the then Minister of State for Defence, Senator Musiliu Obanikoro.
Fayose told reporters in Abuja “I will be there on Tuesday. I am not begging for any bail. It is up to them. If they want me, they should just give me a bed
“I have done by bed bedclothes, I have done my pillowcase, I have my English and Yoruba bibles.
“I am prepared for them. Nobody should worry about me. Only cowards die many times before their deaths.”
The governor said his persecution would be short-lived, adding that the PDP would return to power in the next presidential election.
Fayose said it was not the first time the anti-graft agency would be prosecuting him, adding that he would emerge victorious as he had in the past.
He said, “Tell them at the Villa. My name is Ayo Fayose. My name is Peter the rock. Let me say to you that by the grace of God, I will be at the EFCC by 1pm on Tuesday. I am not a coward, never. Let it be said to them that today is their own and tomorrow is our own. I am coming.”
Fayose spoke even as a source close to him has said that some governors and lawmakers who are members of the Peoples Democratic Party are expected to accompany him to the EFCC.
Sources close to the punch said Fayose, who is the chairman of the PDP Governors Forum, would be accompanied by a team of PDP stalwarts.
The source said, “Fayose will be going to the EFCC with governors and lawmakers. It will be the same way Senate President Bukola Saraki was accompanied by his colleagues when he went to the Code of Conduct Tribunal. We will be there to give him all the encouragement he needs.
