Mr Lere Olayinka, the special assistant to the Ekiti state governor on public communications and new media, in a statement on behalf of Governor Fayose, therefore advised the state Ekiti state chapter of APC to tell President Buhari to properly make his assets public as he promised Nigerians, rather than asking Fayose to publicly declare his assets publicly.
Concerning Fayose’s assets, Olayinka said: “Fayose was comfortable before he became governor. He is not a deceitful person who goes about parading mud houses and cattle herds as assets for cheap political publicity.”
He further added: “Governor Fayose has declared his assets as provided by the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and whoever that is not satisfied can approach the Court or the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB) for copy of his assets declaration
Olayinka said further; “We know where everybody, including President Buhari wealth are hidden and the APC should not provoke the governor to such an extent that he will begin to reveal their hidden assets.”
The governor’s spokesman also said that Fayose had secured a judgement against the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for trespass and intrusion of his properties.
“Up till today, the N10 million damages awarded against EFCC since 2009 has not been paid and he is in the process of filing a writ of FIFA against the agency,” Olayinka said.
