Fayose to establish Ekiti Economic Crimes Commission

The Ekiti State Government is planning to set up the Ekiti Economic Crimes Commission (EECC), its own brand of the national Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The bill to establish EECC has passed second reading at the state House of Assembly.

Governor Ayo Fayose said the bill was sent to the House Committee on Public Accounts and Anti Corruption. He insinuated that the state has the right to set up one even though it has a semblance to EFCC because “Nigeria is a federation and we must run it like one”.
