The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has urged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to charge former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, to court.
Fayose has spent over 24 hours in the custody of the anti-graft agency after he surrendered himself on Tuesday afternoon.
In a statement by the Publicity Secretary of the PDP. South West, Ayo Fadaka, the party stated that the claim by the EFCC that it is working in the interest of the public is a lie.
The statement said, “We, therefore, hold firmly that if Fayose is not charged to court immediately to answer to whatever charges against him, then it will be very clear that the Buhari administration is merely using the EFCC to intimidate, harass and punish him in the most unjust manner.
“It is now going to 48 hours that he submitted himself to the agency and he is still being held incommunicado, this development proves that the claim by the EFCC that it is actually working in public interest is a lie.
“It is merely playing a partisan card as attested to by its unfortunate tweet in the immediate aftermath of the Ekiti election.”
