Olakiitan Victor in Ado Ekiti

The Speaker of the Ekiti State House of Assembly, Hon. Kola
Oluwawole, has accused the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission of gradually becoming a tool for President Muhammadu Buhari to settle political scores with perceived opposition.

He made this accusation in a speech he delivered shortly after the presentation of the state’s Auditor-General’s Report for the 2014 financial year to the Assembly at a special plenary held on Monday in Ado-Ekiti.

The Speaker, who described the anti-corruption agency as an instrument of the government saddled with beaming the searchlight on all reported cases of fraud, maintained that the onus was on them to carry out their functions without bias.
