EFCC's Watch List Placement Not Only 'Political But Petty' - Fayose
Ayodele Fayose

Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose says being placed on the watch list after notifying the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) of his visitation is not only “political but petty”.

Concise News had reported earlier that the anti-graft agency had asked the Nigeria customs service to place the outgoing governor on its watch list, saying he is likely to flee the country in a bid to evade investigation.

Reacting to the development, Fayose said he was not afraid of being investigated by the anti-graft agency.

The Ekiti state governor in a tweet on Sunday said the anti-graft agency should expect him after he hands over power on October 16, as he earlier promised.

He wrote: “@officialEFCC putting my name on watch list after notification of my coming is not only political but petty. I’m not among those who are afraid to face tomorrow. Nobody is God.

“They should expect me on October 16, 2018. I will remain in PDP not minding their intimidation.”
