A man with good intentions fear no foes”
Those were the words of Ekiti state Governor, Ayodele Fayose, saying that he was ready to be probed by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and Independent Corrupt practices and other Related Offences Commission because he has nothing to hide.
Fayose said he has ensured strict adherence to due process and transparency in all his financial dealings and the way contracts were being awarded.
He also said he was not scared of rumoured intentions of some bigwigs in the Peoples Democratic Party to defect to the All Progressives Congress.
Speaking during the flag off of the proposed ultra modern Oja Oba market, which was demolished last year November, Fayose assured that the market, which he said will be a replica of Tejuoso market in Lagos, will be ready in 18 months.
Fayose described as mere rantings, the speculations going round that some PDP bigwigs were planning to dump the party.
Rumour had it last week that former Acting governor, Hon Tope Ademiluyi, ex-envoy to Republic of Congo, Princess Jolaade Onipede and over 30 aggrieved PDP stalwarts were planning to decamp to APC.
