•Governor Ayodele Fayose

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has allayed fears of partisanship in the case of Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State. The Commission gave the reassurance in a statement issued on Monday following negative reactions to a tweet that purportedly appeared on its Twitter handle on Sunday, announcing the imminent revival of the criminal case against Fayose.

“In the opinion of most commentators, the tweet coming a few hours after Fayose’s protege, Kolapo Olusola of the Peoples 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,” Wilson Uwujaren, Head, Media and Publicity at EFCC said in the statement.

“Against this background, the Commission is constrained to state that the purported tweet does not represent the views of the EFCC. As a law enforcement organisation, 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,” the statement said.
