While still in office, Fayose was accused of corruption by the EFCC. The agency attempted to begin his back then, but Fayose consistently maintained that he would answer no queries until he has had his last day in office.
Before turning himself in on Tuesday, he taunted public officials in President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration to submit themselves to EFCC grilling has he would do today.
“In few minutes, I will be at the EFCC Old Office, Wuse 2, Abuja,” he tweeted.
“I’m a man who stands by his words and I hope that after today, those President Buhari’s men that have been accused of corruption will also be bold enough to submit themselves to the @officialEFCC
