“As promised, the committee gave fair hearing to all the parties involved. It was a thorough investigation. You would recall that the investigation was slightly extended beyond the two-week period which Mr President gave the committee.”

This is coming after Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti state threatened to drag the Acting President to court if the panel report was not made public.
