Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose has alleged that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government is plotting to “destabilise” the Ekiti State government using the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Addressing newsmen  in Abuja, yesterday, Fayose alleged that  top functionaries of the Ekiti State government,  important members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state, as well as some of his associates have been penciled 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 and the presidential elections.

Fayose said those to be arrested include his Chief of Staff, Chief Dipo Anisulowo, and four members of the state house of assembly for alleged treason.

Fayose however, assured that he would be available to answer any questions asked him by the EFCC if invited.

“I have not heard in the history of anywhere in the world where elections are conducted without funding. I wish to state that there was no government funding of my election. My election was funded purely by the private sector and organised donations within and outside the party.

 “The Buhari-led administration should also be gracious enough to prove to all Nigerians that their election was not funded by public funds that has been linked to them, but which the EFCC is looking away from. The current government should be mindful that what goes round comes round,” he said.
