He had urged the EFCC to make available his bed ahead of his visit to the commission’s headquarters on Tuesday in Abuja.

Concise News understands that governors and lawmakers on the platform of the PDP are planning to accompany Fayose to the EFCC.

Fayose, writing via his verified Twitter handle on Tuesday afternoon, stated this after revealing he was close to the EFCC office, to honour the commission’s invitation.

“In few minutes, I will be at the EFCC Old Office, Wuse 2, Abuja.

“I’m a man who stands by his words and I hope that after today, those President Buhari’s men that have been accused of corruption will also be bold enough to submit themselves to the @officialEFCC,” he wrote.

This comes as Kayode Fayemi is being sworn in as the new Governor of Ekiti state.
