By Onyebuchi Ezigbo in Abuja
The Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose, has accused the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration and the All Progressives Congress (APC) of plotting to muzzle oppostion elements in the country under the guise of probing for corruption.
The governor also accused the Federal Government and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) of embarking on a clandestine plot to try and bring him and his administration in Ekiti state down for having the courage to speak out against anormalies perperated by the APC-led administration.
Addressing a press conference on Sunday in Abuja, Fayose alleged “that some functionaries of the Ekiti State government, key members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ekiti State, and some associates of his have now been pencilled down for arrest and indefinite detention by the EFCC under the guise of investigating the funds spent by the PDP on the June 21, 2014 governorship election and the Presidential election”.
“I called you here to intimate the public through your various mediums, the new clandestine plot by the President Mohammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress (APC) Federal Government to destabilise the Ekiti State Government, using the instrumentality of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC,” he said).
On the alleged plot to arrest Ekiti state officials, Fayose said that the game plan is to make those to be arrested get detained indefinitely, forced to make statements incriminating me, while at the same time feeding the public with orchestrated fake reports, using their usual media organs.
“A few days ago, we got it on good authority that there was a meeting with some politicians from Ekiti State, including an Ekiti born Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) and self-professed human rights activist by agents of the Federal government, with the agenda solely of how to bring down my administration as the governor of the state.”
