Fayose Moves To Probe Fayemi
A state governor is about to probe the former administration of a serving member of the Federal Executive Council.
A Judicial Commission of Enquiry has been set up by the Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose to probe his predecessor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi.
This is in compliance with the resolution of the Ekiti State House of Assembly passed on May 10, 2017.
The assembly had on March 22, 2016, and February 7, 2017, summoned Fayemi to come and defend himself over alleged diversion of N852m Universal Basic Education Board’s fund during his term.
But the former governor refused to honour the invitation and instead wrote the assembly on one occasion stating that the explanation sought was contained in his handover note.
According to a statement made available by the Secretary to the State Government, Dr. Modupe Alade, on Monday, the commission would look into the financial transactions of Ekiti State between 2010 and 2014.
The commission which has Justice Silas Bamidele Oyewole (Retd.) as chairman and the Director Public Prosecution, Gbemiga Adaramola as (secretary), would also make appropriate recommendations to the state government.
Other members of the panel are (Mrs) Bolawale Awe, Chief Magistrate Idowu Ayenimo, Omodara O. Vincent, Oladele Blessing (representative of Labour Union), and Adesoba Oluremi (Estate Valuer/Architect), and S.B.J Bamise, who is to act as counsel to the Commission.
The commission has three months to submit its report.
