The Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has said he will be reporting to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission on Tuesday (today) with his bedclothes and pillowcase in preparation for long detention.
Fayose said this in the early hours of Monday at a farewell dinner held for him by the Peoples Democratic Party.
He said: “I will be there on Tuesday.
“I am not begging for any bail.
“It is up to them.
“If they want me, they should just give me a bed.
“I have done by bed bedclothes.
“I have done my pillowcase.
“I have my English and Yoruba bibles.
“I am prepared for them.
“Nobody should worry about me.
“Only cowards die many times before their deaths.”
Fayose said his persecution will not last for long as the PDP will return to power at the federal level next year.
He said: “Tell them at the Villa: My name is Ayo Fayose.
“My name is Peter the rock.
“Let me say to you that by the grace of God, I will be at the EFCC by 1pm on Tuesday.
“I am not a coward, never.
“Let it be said to them that today is their own and tomorrow is our own.
“I am coming.
“As soon as I leave the EFCC, I will talk more than what I have said before.
“There is no way a Buhari will match an Atiku when you put the two of them side by side, comment by comment, clarity by clarity of tongue.”
A chieftain of the PDP and former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, has however said top members of the party will accompany Fayose to the EFCC.
Fani-Kayode said at the dinner: “When I was in the EFCC detention for 60 days and then another 30 days, he came to see me.
“They were shaking that a sitting governor could come to the EFCC and they came to bring me to see him from one of the underground cells and all he was saying was: ‘Know that God is with you. God is alive.’
“As you stood by us when we went through challenges, so shall we stand by you from October 16 when we go to the EFCC to go and see them.
“Nothing can overcome you because God is with you.”

In a statement signed by his special adviser on media, Mr. Monoyo Edon, and made available to The Witness on Tuesday, Dr Uduaghan said, “for us in Delta State, Festus Keyamo‘s appointment did not come as a surprise to us.

We are all happy that his cabinet would be named in a matter of days after the National Assembly successfully screens all of them. President Buhari is committed to the success and development of this country. We have seen that with the kind of persons he has chosen to serve with him in this government.
