Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose has denied reports that he is lavishing the state’s money on his legal tussle with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

The allegation was made by the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state which said that Fayose spent N22 million to charter an aircraft to convey Fayose's lawyer, Mike Ozekhome from Lagos to Akure.

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

It reads:

The allegation is a continuation of the APC’s life of disparaging eminent Nigerians that are not dancing to the destructive tunes of the party.

The APC beer parlour jesters in Ekiti must have taken their lamentation over their loss of power to a psychotic level that anything will make meaning to them no matter unreasonable.

Ekiti State government did not, and will not spend any N22 million on Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN) because the government is not being run like the APC government of Dr Kayode Fayemi that plunged the State into debt.

The reality is that, those evil men in the APC that won’t even mind to malign God are seeing Chief Ozekhome as an uncompromising lawyer, who will not blow hot and cold at the same time. They see Chief Ozekhome as a lawyer that will not join them to defend their regime of impunity and for that they have opted to malign him as they have done to others.

While we are confident that Chief Ozekhome will take them one legally, we make bold to say that at no time was the eminent lawyer travelled to Ekiti by air, not to talk chattered flight.
