Former Ekiti State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi has hinted of alleged plot by the All Progressive Congress led-federal government to ensure his successor, Governor Ayodele Fayose face prosecution and serve time in prison when he leaves office in 2018.

Recall Ekiti State Governorship had been scheduled for next year’s July 14 by the Independent Electoral Commission, INEC, while Fayose had openly endorsed his deputy, Prof. Kolapo Olusola as his successor.

Fayemi hinted of the trouble awaiting Fayose after the expiration of his tenure while addressing newsmen at Isan Ekiti in Oye local government area of the state where he spoke on several issues, including the probe of his administration by the incumbent government.

He said, “Fayose’s stock in trade is lying against someone to score political gains. They started with the probe of N852 million UBEC fund and when they knew they could not go far, they started concocting lies and said I looted N17 billion.

“Let t us wait and see who will go to jail between Fayose and I. I have been out of office and I am still moving free, but I am sure he won’t be able to walk free on the streets after losing immunity because of the way he had ran the state aground.”
