Fayose Reacts To Obanikoro’s Confessional Statement

By Ikenga Chronicles October 19, 2016

The Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose has reacted to the purported confessional statement made by the Former Minister of State for Defence, Musiliu Obanikoro on how slush fund from the Former National Security Adviser, NSA, Sambo Dasuki was used to fund Ekiti election.

Fayose in a statement signed by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, said he was only reacting just to fulfil all righteousness because Nigerians are more interested in having food on their tables.

‘’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,’’ Fayose said.

Recall that Obanikoro recently returned to the country and immediately surrendered himself to the EFCC having been accused of benefiting from money meant for arms deals.

Fayose further stated that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government should pay attention to hunger and suffering ravaging Nigeria and its people and leave him alone.

“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.”

“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.”

Adding:  “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.”
