Fayemi also told newsmen that his decision to examine the records of Fayose’s government is not with the aim of probing the incumbent governor.

The minister of Mines and Steel Development, Dr Kayode Fayemi has described the panel of inquiry inaugurated by Governor Ayo Fayose's probe panel as a kangaroo one.

Fayemi said the panel, which was set up by the incumbent governor to probe his administration is a kangaroo one which sole aim to attempt to smear his reputation and render him unpopular by the PDP-led government.

He said: “Fayose’s stock in trade is lying against someone to score political gains.

“Let us wait and see who will go to jail between Fayose and I.
