Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose is seeking to establish the state-owned anti-graft agency.
Fayose revealed that his bill to establish the Ekiti Economic Crimes Commission (EECC) has passed its second reading.
The governor who took to his social media account to state this says the bill was sent to the House Committee on Public Accounts and Anti-Corruption and has passed the second reading.
“A bill for the establishment of Ekiti Economic Crimes Commission (EECC) that I sent to the House of Assembly was today, sent to the House Committee on Public Accounts & Anti Corruption. It has passed 2nd reading.Nigeria is a federation and we must run it like one.”
Considered to be the most controversial governor in the country, Governor Ayo Fayose, is making efforts to make life comfortable for the people of Ekiti State.
This is coming after the governor, at a PDP rally in Ado Ekiti, declared that God directed him to support his Deputy, Kolapo Olusola-Eleka, to succeed him.
“Olusola never said he wanted to be deputy governor, but God instructed me to pick him. I said we will go together after our tenure, but God said I should allow him to stay; that what I said was my own opinion,” Mr. Fayose told the huge crowd.
He said his administration had achieved a lot in the areas of infrastructure.
“We have improved on infrastructural development. We built a flyover at Oja Oba market and also built a new governor’s office. We have executed many projects,”
Fayose, who at one time was alleged to have borrowed N56billion, however denied the allegation, insisting that he had not borrowed “even a dime” since he came into office.
“Let my opponents know that the elections are not won by propaganda. If they are sure of what they are saying, let them tell us the bank that gave the loan and also produce the papers leading to the transactions,” he said.
