– A pressure group within the in Ekiti state civil service has criticized Governor Ayo Fayose for his outbursts on a radio programme, where he attacked President Muhammadu Buhari
– The group urged the EFCC, ICPC, and DSS to beam their searchlights on other banks apart from Zenith Bank to recover state funds
A pressure group within the in Ekiti state civil service, Enlightened Workers’ Forum (EWF) has criticized Governor Ayo Fayose for his outbursts on a radio programme, where he attacked President Muhammadu Buhari and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on the recent seizure of his assets.
In a statement issued on Friday by EWF Coordinator, Mike Bamidele, the workers dissociated Ekiti people from the anti-Buhari utterances of Fayose made on a live programme on an Ibadan, Oyo State-based radio station, Fresh FM, which was relayed on the state-owned electronic media.
The workers’ group took a strong exception to Fayose’s statement on the radio programme condemning the freezing of his personal bank account and seizure of houses linked to him when he (Fayose) asked ‘whose father’s money got lost and whose father’s houses were lost?’
The group urged the EFCC, Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) and Department of State Services (DSS) to beam their searchlights on other banks apart from Zenith Bank to recover state funds allegedly stashed there.
The statement read: “The EFCC, ICPC and DSS still have a lot to do in Ekiti State, they should not limit their investigations to Zenith Bank alone; other banks must also be investigated and every nook and cranny of the state should be combed.”
