I pity Fayose.

Please take your time and read this COUNTER AFFIDAVIT to see how hopeless those supporting Fayose are at the moment.

Also note that the text was read under OATH by an EFCC investigator.

Even his counsel was shocked when he saw damning Counter Affidavit.

Those defending him should better advise him to forgo the funds left over in the 3 Zenith Bank accounts.

His former Co-traveller, Dr Tope Aluko added another bomb shell when he revealed on Adana FM radio station that all the campaign funds came through Obanikoro (who got it from the Office of the NSA).
That Zenith Bank actually contributed N200 million - but only AFTER the election has taken place (Ayo Fayose had "won")

So EFCC even got a court order to earlier freeze the accounts. And some dumb-heads were abusing this hardworking agency.

Thumbs up to the EFCC. Continue the good works.

Someone illegally got money from the office of the NSA, and people are still screaming that he should be allowed to continue spending the money just to spite the ruling govt.

They seriously need to have their heads examined.

In more civilised climes, this Fayose would have been forced to resign, if he refused to willingly resign.

Imagine, a state governor, owing workers and pensioners months of unpaid benefits, actually has hundreds of millions he illegally acquired in his accounts, and some mofos are still saying the accounts should be unfrozen.


Accounts should be unfrozen for him to enjoy his loots while the populace are subjugated through poverty?? Why am I even in this country of dunces sef.

This seems to be the strategy of some of our evil political class. It's not even a PDP/APC thing as one self declared principality in Lagos is also doing something similar.

This guy instead to pay salaries, prefers to be giving out chickens that looks kwashiokored to just 5% of the population of the state, but gives the event 100% media coverage to appear generous and kind hearted. WHEREAS, he actually has millions stacked somewhere for himself and his sons.

His online unemployed/underemployed dumbies keep singing his praises, while Fayose's sons are enjoying the money meant to equip troops fighting a war in the NE.

Chai, this Fayose needs to be stoned!

Where were you when Fayose invited OBJ to commission an empty poultry farm?

Where were you when he was using the former VC of UNAD to launder money?

Where were you when he invade a court at Fajuyi that was about to deliver a judgement on his case with thugs?
