Ekiti State governor, Ayodele Fayose on Monday evening announced that his account with Zenith bank has been frozen by the EFCC.

Speaking at the bank premises in Ekiti, he said:

“I got mind of the fact that the EFCC had placed restriction order on my personal account and that of my associates. I came here today and I have been able to see it. This action shows that this government has no respect for the constitution because I enjoy immunity under Section 308.

“I support government fighting corruption, but it has to be within the ‎ambit of the law. You can investigate me, it is their right, but they have to wait till 2018, because I will be done by then. They should not be in a hurry because I will personally come to them for investigation

“I have become a figure in this country that I don’t have anywhere to run to. This rascality of EFCC must stop. If they like, let them investigate the whole world. Is it because they are sitting government
now that nobody can ask them question? We will take every legal procedure to get things right.

“I am not leaving this bank until they give me statement of account. They must put it into writing because EFCC has no right under the law to freeze my account.

“They did not communicate me. They want to destabilize the state and we will use all legal means to make them obey the constitution. They can investigate me, but they can’t coerce me”, he said.

According to him, the President’s wife, Aisha Buhari, was allegedly involved in the Jefferson’s Halliburton Scandal in United States under ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo’s administration.‎

“Mrs Buhari was accused of wiring $170,000 to Jefferson’s account and the man has been convicted. So Buhari and APC should not see themselves as saint”, he said.

On Sunday, hours after President Muhammadu Buhari arrived the country from London, Fayose accused him of plotting to remove him as governor of Ekiti state.
