THE Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has reacted to the freezing of the per­sonal account of the Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

Spokesperson of the Senator Ahmed Makarfi Committee, Dayo Adey­eye in a statement last night described the action of the EFCC “as politically motivated, unlawful, un­democratic, autocratic, oppressive, draconian and desperation by the Buhari administration to cover up for its failure to deliver on his campaign promises to Nigerians.”

The former minister of state for works noted that events in the country in recent times had shown that President Buhari and the APC had no agenda for nation building but on a revenge mission.

“This government is all out to silence any voice of the opposition. Nigerians will recall that Chief Olisa Metuh, the former na­tional publicity secretary of our great party is today standing trial for receiving campaign funds and since his arrest and prosecution by the anti-graft agency, Chief Metuh could not challenge the APC admin­istration on policy issues until he left office.

“Nigerians will also recall that one of the known opposition voice apart from some individu­als and governors of our party that has exposed the APC-led administration for running the country aground in the last one year is the former spokes­man of the PDP presi­dential campaign organi­zation, Chief Femi Fani Kayode and he is now standing trial for receiv­ing campaign funds from the director of finance of the campaign.

“It is now the turn of the Governor Fayose who has been consistent in condemning the woes the APC brought upon Nige­rians and for remaining critical of the APC and President Buhari’s admin­istration.”

Demanding that the an­ti-corruption agency free the bank account immedi­ately, it further submitted that the action violates Section 308 of 1999 Con­stitution, as a sitting gov­ernor cannot stand trial until after office.             The Sun
