‘Fayose’s fate will be determined by the Court at the expiration of his tenure’ – EFCC

Days after EFCC suffered  backlash following their tweet in reaction to the outcome of Ekiti State election on Saturday in which APC’s Kayode Fayemi was declared the winner, the anti-graft agency has dropped a rejoinder to their previous post.

'Fayose's fate will be determined by the Court at the expiration of his tenure' - EFCC lailasnews


In a statement released this morning, the EFCC said the Commission is constrained to state that the purported tweet does not represent the views of the EFCC. It further stated that there is a subsisting criminal charge against Governor Fayose, and the fate of the charge will be determined by the Federal High Court, Ado Ekiti, at the expiration of his tenure, not the EFCC’.

The statement reads;

‘We observed with interest, reactions to a tweet that purportedly appeared on the Commission’s Twitter handle July 15, announcing the imminent revival of the criminal case against Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State’.

‘In the opinion of most commentators, the tweet coming a few hours after Fayose’s protege, Kolapo Olusola of the People’s Democratic Party lost the governorship election to his All progressives Congress rival, Kayode Fayemi, betrayed the partisanship of the EFCC in the political contest in Ekiti State’.

It further added ‘against the background, Commission is constrained to state that the purported tweet does not represent the views of the EFCC. As a law enforcement organization the Commission is apolitical and was not involved in the recent Ekiti election. It therefore has no reason to gloat over the political misfortune of any candidate or political god-father. While it is true that there is a subsisting criminal charge against Governor Fayose, the fate of the charge will be determined by the Federal High Court, Ado Ekiti, at the expiration of his tenure, not the EFCC’.

Recall that after the tweet which the anti-graft agency deleted went viral, they were accused of being partisan and being a tool of the Presidency.

  1. You see people sounding so bittered with hatred being made manifest in the way they speak. Nobody will tell you that this not just a fight against corruption whatsoever but on a cause to wicked people. A court you have not gone to, you are already saying rubbish.
