News: Ekiti Governor-elect Ayo Fayose Still Has A Case To Answer – EFCC

Ayo Fayose may have won the election in Ekiti state but he still has a corruption case to answer, this is according to EFCC Head of Media and Publicity, Mr. Wilson Uwujaren.
Speaking with Punch Yesterday, Mr. Uwujaren said Fayose’s election has not affected his ongoing trial at the Federal High Court, Ado-Ekiti, for alleged corruption.
“The EFCC has not dropped the case against the former Governor of Ekiti State, Mr. Ayodele Fayose. The trial is still going on; it is continuing at the Federal High Court, Ado-Ekiti. In fact further hearing comes up on July 15, 2014.
As you know, immunity from prosecution applies only to the President, the Vice President, sitting governors and their deputies.”
It is the court that would decide whether the case would be discontinued or not; all arguments will be canvassed in court and it is the court that would decide,” he said.
