A former governor of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi has been sworn-in as the state’s supreme leader on Tuesday, October 16, 2018 in Ado-Ekiti.
Dr. Fayemi, who won the July 14 governorship election held in the state on the platform of All Progressives Congress, defeated the then Deputy Governor of the state and candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Professor Kolapo Olusola, and other candidates to emerge the winner of the election.
The Independent National Electoral Commission declared that Fayemi polled 197,459 votes, while, his closest rival, Olusola got 178,121 votes.
Meanwhile, scores of supporters have arrived at the Wuse 2 office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to support former Governor Ayodele Fayose.
The ex-Ekiti State Governor, whose tenure expired midnight on Monday, said earlier in the day that he would visit the ant graft agency on Tuesday with his bedclothes and pillowcase.
It was gathered that Fayose entered into the EFCC office in Wuse 2 in the company of Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, and a former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode.
Fayose, who wore a customised T-shirt emblazoned with “EFCC I’m Here” over a pair of jeans and a face cap, went into the Commission with a bag pack.
Speaking with newsmen at the Commission, Fayose alleged that the EFCC deployed its men in his home, even when he had shown willingness to honour the Commission’s invitation.
Fayose’s immunity ends along with his tenure and he has been invited to the headquarters of the EFCC where he will answer to allegations that he received about N1.3bn from the Office of the National Security Adviser through the then Minister of State for Defence, Senator Musiliu Obanikoro.
