The immediate past governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, on Friday honoured a summon by the Ekiti State House of Assembly.
Naija News reports that the Ekiti State Assembly on Thursday summoned the former governor over allegations bordering on misappropriation of local government funds.
Fayose, who arrived the Assembly complex at about 1:15 pm, went
straight to the office of the Speaker, Hon. Funminiyi Afuye, with
the speaker inviting other principal officers of the House, including
the Deputy Speaker, Mojeed Jamiu.
Speaking to newsmen, Fayose expressed his readiness to answer any question bordering on his tenure as governor of the State
He said: “I’m a clear conscience, I fear no accusation.
“When I read it online yesterday, that I have been summoned to appear before the House, I called the speaker to confirm the story and when he confirmed it, I told him of my readiness to appear before the House today or anytime.
“This is because I am one Nigerian who is not afraid of being asked
questions and answering them.
“When the EFCC said they needed me, I made myself available to them
at the exact time and day that I promised.
“To me, leadership is about responsibility and we as leaders must
always demonstrate that we are responsible.”
Asked if he was not afraid that it could be political witch-hunt, he
said; “Even if it is political witch-hunt, am not bothered. What is
important is that my conscience is free.
“For me, I have done my bit, I will be available for any investigation.”
