APC threatens Fayose with EFCC over N400m road contract fund

The All Progressives Congress in Ekiti State on Tuesday insisted that the immediate past governor of the state, Ayodele Fayose, must explain the whereabouts of the N400 million earmarked by the Dr Kayode Fayemi administration during the first term for the rehabilitation of Ado – Akure Road.

APC State Publicity Secretary, Ade Ajayi, said at a press conference in Ado Ekiti that the party would not hesitate to drag the former governor to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission if his explanation on the whereabouts of the fund was not satisfactory.

Ajayi said Fayose’s explanation must cover why he allegedly terminated the reconstruction of the Ekiti portion of the road awarded by Fayemi to KOPEC Construction Company in 2014.

The APC which alleged that Fayose was instrumental to the deplorable state of the Ado –Akure Road and urged the former governor to rather “shut up if he could not explain the whereabouts of the money”.

“Fayose must explain why he terminated Ado – Akure Road contract. The public wants to know whether he terminated that contract for Afao Road, because the Ado – Akure Road is very germane to our economy in Ekiti.
