Governor Ekiti state, Ayodele Fayose has written to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, notifying the agency that he will make himself available to it on Tuesday, the 16th of October, a day after the expiration of his tenure as Governor of the state.

In a  letter personally signed by the Governor,  he notified the agency of his decision to make himself available to the EFCC “to clarify issue(s) or answer questions on issues within to his knowledge.”

Governor Fayose, in the letter dated September 10, and addressed to the chairman of the EFCC, said his desire to submit to the commission was hinged on several and serial actions of your commission for some time now, including but not limited to freezing of my accounts and attempts to secure temporary forfeiture of my properties.

He said these were indicative of the commission’s desire to have me clarify some issues or answer some questions but for the immunity I enjoy under Section 308 of the 1999 Constitution as the sitting governor of Ekiti State.

Governor Fayose, who has been in a battle of wits with the anti-graft agency and had also been in and out of courts with the commission over his personal and state’s finances.

His second term as Governor of Ekiti State would elapse on the 16th of  October, when he is expected to hand over govenment to the Governor-elect Kayode Fayemi.
