By Olakiitan Victor in Ado Ekiti

Following controversy trailing his sudden resignation from Ayodele Fayose’s cabinet, former Commissioner for Works in Ekiti State , Mr Kayode Oso, on Wednesday clarified that he resigned honourably on
health ground.

Oso denied the allegation making the rounds that he ran away to stave off arrest by Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) , describing the allegations as the handiwork of the enemies of Fayose’s government.

Oso spoke in Ado Ekiti on Wednesday during the swearing-in of Mrs Theresa Funmilayo Ogun, ex-special assistant on Widows Matters, as the new Commissioner for Works and Transport by Governor Fayose.

Shortly after Oso’s resignation a couple of months ago, there were insinuations that he ran away to prevent his arrest by EFCC while it was also rumoured that governor had a frosty relationship with
Fayose over the awards of N57 billion flyover and N23 billion Erekesan Market projects.
