The immediate past Governor of Ekiti State, Dr. Peter Ayodele Fayose, has replied the Ekiti State House of Assembly stating that he will not appear before clowns.
Speaking through his aide on new media, Mr. Lere Olayinka, the Governor refused to appear before the State Assembly refering to the members as clowns who he will not dignify with his presence.
Ekiti State House of Assembly had earlier summoned the former Governor of the State to appear before it, over allegations of misappropriation of Local Government funds under his watch as Governor of the State, from 2014 -2018.
The statement released by Lere Olayinka reads, “Re: Ekiti House of Assembly Summons Fayose”.
“Former Governor Ayo Fayose will not dignify an assembly of clowns, who are under the total control of a Governor, who is desperately in search of ways to cover his electoral thievery and failure to secure the acceptance of Ekiti people”.
“If they have any evidence of financial impropriety against him (Fayose), they can ask the man who used SMS to appoint them, to invite EFCC operatives and accommodate them in the Government House as he has done on many occasions”.
“As for us, we are moving on”.
