The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has commended the judiciary for its judgement ordering the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to unfreeze Governor Ayo Fayose’s bank account.

Justice Taiwo Taiwo of the Federal High Court sitting in Ado Ekiti, on Tuesday, December 13, 2016, ordered the anti-graft agency to lift the restriction which it placed on Fayose’s Zenith bank account.

The EFCC had earlier blocked the Governor’s bank account, alleging that it was used to divert funds linked to the arms purchase scandal involving the former National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki.

According to Daily Post, the spokesman of the Ahmed Makarfi faction, Dayo Adeyeye also thanked the judiciary for curbing the excesses of the EFCC.

Adeyeye said “We in the PDP’s family are particularly happy with the judgement , because it will help in curbing the reign of impunity under President Buhari’s government.

“EFCC acted against Governor Fayose as if it was not a creation of the constitution. It acted lawlessly and as if individual’s rights to own an account as guaranteed by the 1999 constitution no longer exists.

“We really applaud the role of judiciary in the way it has been adjudicating on some political issues. But for their roles, the nation will by now be witnessing a full blown dictatorship.”

The PDP spokesman also accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of destroying the country’s legacies.

He added that “The PDP is well prepared for the task ahead, particularly for 2019. We are not ruling out the possibility of merging with other political parties, because there could be merger which our party can be part of.

“As we speak now, the PDP remains the strongest party in Nigeria and Africa. We are now more united than ever.

“All the serving and former governors, members of the National Assembly, all the State chairmen of the party are now on one side.

They are all supporting Alhaji Makarfi caretaker committee.

“The factional case pending in the court of Appeal will soon be settled and the PDP will thereafter become a real united party that can withstand any election. Only few ones are rebellious who allowed themselves to be used by the ruling government.”

After Justice Taiwo’s ruling, Governor Ayo Fayose, on Thursday, December 15, 2016, stormed the Ado-Ekiti branch of Zenith bank and withdrew N5m cash from his bank account.
