Ekiti state Governor Ayodele Fayose has reiterated his willingness to present himself at the headquarters of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission in Abuja for investigation at the end of his tenure.

Fayose’s governorship of the southwest state ends on the 15th of October, and he had made known his intent to make himself available for investigation the next day, 16 October.

The outgoing governor is being investigated for allegedly receiving more than N1.219bn share of the fund meant for purchase of arms from ex-minister of state for defence Musiliu Obanikoro during the build-up to the 2014 governorship election in the state.

And recent reports say that the EFCC had already set up a special team to grill the governor.

But speaking on Wednesday during the inauguration of a new school he built in his Afao-Ekiti home country, Fayose maintained that he had done nothing wrong.

“He who has clear conscience fears no foe. The EFCC should still expect me at 1pm next Tuesday,” the governor said.
