Ekiti state governor, Ayo Fayose who is being investigated for allegedly receiving N1.3 billion from the arms deal fraud, says no amount of intimidation and harassment will make him shut his mouth as he is not afraid of incarceration or death. Fayose said this during a rally organized by a newly formed Ekiti State Private Sector Union in Ado Ekiti today July 8th,2016.
“They said I collected a sum of N1.3 billion from the office of the former National Security Adviser, Col Sambo Dasuki to fund my election. Some even said I collected it through Mr Musiliu Obanikoro. Let me put it on records that I did not know Col Dasuki, and Obanikoro has not come out openly to indict me, because he has not returned from abroad. No act of intimidation and harassment will shut my mouth. I will continue to talk about national issues. Somebody from Ekiti gave President Buhari N1.5b for campaign, but today he is being seen as a saint. When you want to campaign or do marriage , people will give you money and my own can’t be an exemption. Would I now return the remaining money after the campaign? I am not afraid of incarceration or death. APC problem is 2018 and as the God liveth, they are going nowhere. We will stand up and defend our state and the money they said they have gotten through anti-corruption should be spent for Nigerians. “
