Ekiti Assembly individuals dissent, censure solidifying of Fayose's records

There was a mild drama in Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital yesterday, when lawmakers of state House of Assembly hold a plenary session right in the middle of highway, in protest against the freezing of the account of Governor Ayodele Fayose at the Zenith by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC).
The EFCC had on June 21 frozen two account numbers 1003126654 and 9013074033, belonging to Fayose at the Zenith Bank alleging that N1.2 billion of the $2.1 billion arms scandal was traced to the accounts.
EKITIThe lawmakers, who sat under a canopy displayed placards with different inscriptions such as: “we are ready for arrest”,”harassing Ekiti lawmakers/government won’t give you 2018,” “No matter your media trial and blackmail, on Fayose we stand” and leave Fayose alone” among others.
They accuse the federal government of deliberately orchestrating and manipulating anti-graft and security agencies to intimidate and harass Fayose over his consistent and strident criticism of Buhari’s policies.
Policemen in 11 hilux pick-up vans provide security to the protesters, six of the vans were used to block one lane of the Okesa dual carriage highway forcing motorists coming from Fajuyi road to divert to the other side of the road.
The lawmakers, who came to the scene with travelling bags containing their personal effects, said they were ready for the EFCC’s arrest.
The Speaker of the assembly, Hon. Kola Oluwawole, while addressing newsmen said the sit out assignment was meant to pass a note of warning to the APC-led federal government that they were solidly behind Fayose and that nobody can use them to impeach the governor.
The deputy speaker, Segun Adewumi, said; “If Fayose builds house anywhere, it is not their business; they should wait until he finishes his tenure.”
He alleged that security reports at their disposal indicated that 10 of them had been pencilled down by the federal government for arrest over trump up charges.”
