Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose has denied being the owner of a petrol station seized by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in Akute, Ogun State.

The station, identified as ‘Chance Oil’, was reportedly sealed by EFCC agents on Wednesday, July 13, 2016.

Fayose’s denial was contained in a statement issued by his media aide, Lere Olayinka.

It reads:

It is ridiculous ‎to say such thing about a person that has been governor for two years. How would you say Governor Fayose has a filling station at Akute?

If he would have had a filling ‎station, he would have had it along Lagos – Ibadan express road, at Lekki and other highbrow areas and not Akute. Does he even have any link with Akute?

Governor Fayose would rather‎ have something like NNPC mega station, which would have like at least 20 pumps. He has been a successful businessman before becoming governor.

When I hear some of these things, I just say are they really brainy.‎ Last week, because Governor Fayose used a guest house, Brilla Bicaso, Gana Street, Abuja, they wanted to lock the place.
