When Dr Kayode Fayemi assumes office on Tuesday October 15 as executive governor of Ekiti State, one prominent face that will be missing is outgoing governor, Ayodele Fayose.

Fayose, has said he won’t attend the inauguration of the new governor because he has a date with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

The governor also advised the members of the Ekiti State House of Assembly to cooperate with Fayemi and work for the interest of the state.

Fayemi had on Wednesday said he had invited Fayose and was expecting him to attend the swearing-in on Tuesday.

But speaking at a press conference in Ado Ekiti on Thursday, Fayose said he might play into the hands of his enemies if he failed to report at the EFCC.

He said, “If I should attend the programme, some politicians may use the chance to harass me even when they are not sent by Fayemi.

“This will further destroy relationship. Issues between me and Fayemi are not personal. I have been cooperating with the committee set up by Fayemi on this transition.

“Again, I have to be in EFCC office in Abuja on Tuesday. But let me say clearly that I am ready to appear before any panel set up by the incoming government to probe my administration,” he said.
