Ekiti state Governor AYO FAYOSE has challenged President MUHAMMADU BUHARI to direct the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to charge the PDP National Publicity Secretary, OLISA METUH to court if the commission was sure of evidences of fraud against him.
He said the EFCC appears to be operating a system in which an accused person is first arrested, detained endlessly while it goes about looking for evidence to nail the person.
Governor FAYOSE, who maintained his support for a genuine fight against corruption, challenged the EFCC to also act on petitions submitted to it against All Progressives Congress chieftains who sponsored President BUHARI’s electioneering campaign.
Speaking through his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, LERE OLAYINKA, Governor FAYOSE cautioned that nothing untoward must happen to METUH, adding that the APC’s desperation to decimate and silence the opposition has dragged the BUHARI-led government in the mud of lawlessness.
He said what the nation is witnessing today is a situation whereby the EFCC will arrest PDP leaders, humiliate them by subjecting them to media trial, detain them for weeks in the process of trying to force them to make statements during which the commission will be looking for evidence.
