Chairman of the forum and Ondo State Governor, Mimiko said EFCC cannot interfere with the account of a sitting governor, noting that, it was contrary to Section 308 of the 1999 Constitution.

The Ondo Gov also stressed that the account of any individual could only be frozen after a court of competent jurisdiction had so ruled or an interim order by a court of competent jurisdiction was granted to the anti graft agency.

Mimiko further argued that the agency should have waited till Fayose vacates office before taking actions if he was found wanting for any criminal infraction against the governor.
