Governor Ayodele Fayose Visits Fani-Kayode in EFCC Custody
The Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose today, visited former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode at the EFCC Abuja Office. Fayose arrived at the EFCC office at 2:15pm and left at 4:30pm. He was received by three operatives of the EFCC led by Mr Madaki. Governor Fayose spent about 30mins with Fani-Kayode encouraging him and even prayed with him. He urged him not to feel abandoned or discouraged as many Nigerians understand that the Buhari-led government are not fighting corruption but trying to crush the critics of the government.
Some senators on Tuesday, paid a solidarity visit to three former ministers, Femi Fani-Kayode, Musiliu Obanikoro and Bala Muhammed, and former presidential spokesperson, Reuben Abati, who are in the custody of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission in Abuja with Obanikoro and Abati now free.
It would be recalled that four serving senators last week Tuesday, identified as Isah Hamma from Bauchi Central, Ali Wakili from Bauchi South, Ali Ndume from Borno South, and Philips Aduda from the Federal Capital Territory had visisted Fani-Kayode at the EFCC detention centre in Abuja. A former Oyo State senator, Teslim Folarin, was also among the visitors. The senators gave the former ministers and former presidential spokesperson the assurances of their support.
