Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has advised President Muhammadu Buhari against allowing politicians to hijack the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission for their selfish motives.
Fayose made the remarks in Ado Ekiti on Wednesday while administering oaths on 10 new commissioners in the state, after congratulating Femi Fani-Kayode, on his acquittal by the court.
“I want to congratulate my friend and brother, Femi Fani-Kayode, a dogged fighter like me on his acquittal by the court today.
I want to advise President Buhari not to allow politicians hijack the graft war because if our motive is to fight personality instead of the corrupt people, then you will destroy institutions and rubbish the whole thing.”
The governor added that his administration will give 25 percent to the illiterates in his further appointments.
“The illiterates will get 25 percent because it is from them we get the votes. Though they may not have the certificates, but there is nothing wrong with us keeping them in one board for them to have recognition,” he said.
If no leader rises up to promote these children of the poor, who will promote them? I am here for children of the poor, if you don’t like it, wait for your time.”
In the face of so many challenges and perversion, you stood your ground. I salute Ekiti people for staying by the govt they choose. He noted
