Gov. Fayose Accuses EFCC of Freezing His Bank Account Despite Court Ruling
Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, on Saturday said the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) had again frozen his personal accounts with Zenith Bank, despite a court order unfreezing it, the Punch is reporting.
Fayose said he went to the bank on Friday to make withdrawals from the account but his cheque was turned down. Officials of the Bank told him that they had a directive from the EFCC not to honour the cheque, he said.
Justice Taiwo Taiwo, while ruling on the motion said, once a judgment is being executed, you cannot stay the execution again.
“This is the impunity we are condemning,” Fayose said. “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.”
Governor Fayose also said 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 don’t ask me.”
He said his recent election as the chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party’s Governors’ Forum, was God’s way of repositioning the party.
“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.”
Denouncing the poor welfare of corp members, the governor called on the Federal Government to review corps members’ monthly allowance from N19,500 to N50,000.
