The Governor of Ekiti State, Peter Ayodele Fayose, Storm Zenith bank Yesterday to withdraw five thousand from his recent unfrozen account.
The Federal High Court, Ado-Ekiti had on Tuesday ordered the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, to De-freeze the governor’s account.
on getting to the bank premises at about 1:20 pm on Thursday, the governor head straight to the office of the Bank’s Branch Manager, Mr. Mojeed Adekunle and presented a counter-cheque to make withdrawal from his account.
After collecting his money The governor said “I want to thank Nigerians and my supporters for believing in our cause that Nigerians should not be oppressed. And I want to thank the EFCC for obeying the court order.
They placed order on two accounts, one has N82 million, the other has N300 million. I have collected N5 million now. I’m not closing the accounts but if they attack my accounts again, I will make trouble with them, big trouble.
If EFCC is appealing the court judgement that is their funeral. As a sitting Governor my immunity is absolute just like that of the President.
They should tell EFCC to shut up. There is no authority other than the authority of the constitution of this country which I enjoy.
Rubbishing the office of the governor is the same as rubbishing that of the President because after the President, Governors are the next. It’s their time now, another people’s time will come tomorrow. There is no place for dictatorship in Nigeria.”
