Ekiti boils as groups call for Fayose’s probe



Ekiti boils as groups call for Fayose's probe

Different Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs), on Friday rallied in Ekiti state, announcing their support for the anti-corruption fight of President Muhammadu Buhari and demanding financial accountability from the embattled Governor Ayodele Fayose.

The group also called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to bring Fayose and all those who participated in the alleged looting of Ekiti to justice.

The protesters who carried different placards had gathered at Fajuyi Roundabout earlier in the day before commencing their march at about 8.50 am, expressing outrage at the alleged diversion of funds meant for the purchase of arms to fight insurgency in the Northeast to allegedly sponsor Fayose’s governorship campaign.

“We Don’t Want a Criminal as our Governor in Ekiti”, “Fayose Stole N750 million from Ado-Ifaki Road Account,” “Grids Associates, Fayose’s Conduit Pipe”, “Fayose’s Wife is a Fake Prophetess, where is Ekiti’s N100 million”, “What Happened to Ekiti Airport Fund”, “Fayose Must Go”, “Access Bank is Aiding Fraud in Ekiti”, “Fayose is a Disgrace to Ekiti People.”
