Ekiti: APC reveals shocking pending fraud case against Governor Fayose

APC slams Fayose over pending case
The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti state has said that Governor Ayodele Fayose has an existing fraud case pending at the Federal High Court in Ado Ekiti.
This was disclosed by the state publicity secretary of the party, Taiwo Olatunbosun, in a statement on Thursday, July 21.

Olatunbosun said the governor has been misleading the public for long about the status of the case.

The state APC spokesperson challenged the governor to provide the court’s enrollment order discharging him on the poultry project case to convince the public.

He said: “It is regrettable that Fayose has made lies and falsehood a major plank of the state policy of his government.

“There is no iota of truth in Fayose’s claim of acquittal as no court has delivered judgment on the matter, which is still pending before the Federal High Court, Ado-Ekiti.

“The case was last heard by Mr Justice Adamu Hobon of the Federal High Court, Ado-Ekiti, where EFCC gave a blow-by-blow incontrovertible evidence of how Fayose used Biological Concepts Limited owned by his friend, Gbenga James, to defraud Ekiti State of N1.3bn to build houses and purchase a car for his mother.

“After that sitting, what Fayose did was to approach the Supreme Court for an interlocutory injunction to frustrate the trial. This is not the same thing as being discharged and acquitted over a matter that judgment is yet to be given.”
