The All Progressive Congress, APC, has dared Ekiti state governor, Ayo Fayose, to declare his assets if he has nothing to hide.
The party chided the governor, saying his predecessor, Kayode Fayemi, declared his assets following his swearing in as Ekiti state governor.
“The governor must seize the opportunity of declaring his assets to douse speculations of his alleged funneling of the state’s resources to his private enterprises abroad.
“It is curious that he has not abused President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo after they declared their assets. Fayose’s loud silence on the President in this case is curious because the governor has never seen anything good in whatever the President does.”
But Fayose, who reacted through his Chief Press Secretary, Idowu Adelusi, said the APC should tell the public how many of its governors had openly declared their assets.
“We won’t react, let them tell us how many APC governors have openly declared their assets. Did you read yesterday’s papers on governors’ position on asset declaration?
“APC has 23 governors, how many have openly declared their assets? The position of the governor is that of no reaction. Let their party show the lead by making their 23 state governors declare their assets openly.”
He added that APC will have to go the legal way in order for the governor to declare his assets.
