The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has said they had not dropped the corruption charges against the governor-elect of Ekiti State Mr. Ayodele Fayose.
They said the report by the media that they had dropped the case is not true.
This was made known by the Agency’s head of Media and Publicity Mr. Wilson Uwujaren that Fayose’s victory in the recent election did not stop his ongoing trial for alleged corruption at the Federal High Court Ado-Ekiti.
Uwujaren said the immunity clause in the constitution only support the President, the Vice- President, Sitting Governor and the Deputies, not governors-elect, he also stated there will be a hearing for the case on the 15th of July 2014.
He said the case against Fayose has made huge progress as the commission had contacted two witnesses to testify in the case.
He also said the controversy surrounding the case regarding whether it will be withdrawn before Fayose takes over in October or not will be decided by the court.
He said all argument concerning the discontinuation of the case will be discussed in the Court.
