EFCC Freezes Fayose’s Zenith Bank Account Again

By Ikenga Chronicles February 5, 2017

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has again frozen the personal account of the Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, which he has with Zenith Bank.

Fayose made this disclosure on Saturday when the bank refused to honour his cheque based on a directive from the EFCC when he went there on Friday.

This came few days after a Federal High Court, Ado Ekiti, dismissed a motion for stay of execution of the judgment unfreezing the accounts for lacking in merit.

Justice Taiwo Taiwo while ruling on the motion filed by the EFCC had said “once a judgment is being executed, you cannot stay the execution again.”

Fayose said, “This is the impunity we are condemning. The bank and the EFCC got all the judgments of the court, but the agency still harassed the bank to act against the law. If I sent somebody with a cheque, they could give excuse but I was there myself; acts of impunity such as this cannot continue. We will challenge them.”

He added that he had received revelations that he would be “number one” in the country.

“Have you noticed that every attempt to impeach me has failed? How I will get there doesn’t ask me.”

“By the grace of God, we are going to reposition our party. The PDP is only a sleeping giant and when it wakes up, those mocking us now will quake. Charlatans who are one leg in, one leg out and causing confusion in the party would have to decide where to belong.”

The governor has called on the Federal Government to review corps members’ monthly allowance from N19,500 to N50,000.

According to him, the current allowance can no longer sustain them as Nigeria continues to grapple with recession.
