Fayose: I’ll hand over to Head of Service on Sunday

THE outgoing Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, says he will hand over the affairs of the state to the Head of Service on Sunday, October 14, 2018.

Fayose disclosed this on Saturday on Twitter where he wrote that he took the wife of the governor-elect Erelu Bisi Fayemi round the state house.

“I am presently taking Dr. Kayode Fayemi’s Wife, Erelu Bisi and other members of the inauguration committee round the Govt House. Tomorrow, I will hand over the Govt House to the Head of Service,” Fayose wrote.

The swearing -in of Kayode Fayemi as the new Governor of Ekiti State is scheduled to hold on Tuesday, 16 October 2018.

But Fayose had said he will not attend the inauguration  because he has a date with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

    “If I should attend the programme, some politicians may use the chance to harass me even when they are not sent by Fayemi.

    “This will further destroy relationship. Issues between me and Fayemi are not personal. I have been cooperating with the committee set up by Fayemi on this transition

    “Again, I have to be in EFCC office in Abuja on Tuesday. But let me say clearly that I am ready to appear before any panel set up by the incoming government to probe my administration,” he said

    Fayemi, however, on Thursday said that  Fayose was free to attend his inauguration if he wishes.
