Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has said that his date with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, will prevent him from attending the inauguration of governor-elect Kayode Fayemi on Tuesday.
Fayose said this at a press conference in Ado Ekiti on Thursday.
”Issues between me and Fayemi are not personal. I have been cooperating with the committee set up by Fayemi on this transition.
”Again, I have to be in EFCC office in Abuja on Tuesday . But let me say clearly that I am ready to appear before any panel set up by the incoming government to probe my administration,” he said.
Fayose urged Fayemi to deploy the N327m kept in the bank by his administration to complete the new Oja Oba market for the use of Ekiti traders .
He explained that he decided to abandon the civic centre project started by Fayemi and constructed a new market because it was not a priority to the people of the state.
Fayose said the newly built Ministry of Finance would be named after a former Minister of National Planning, Ayo Ogunlade, to appreciate his contributions to the state.
