Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose has questioned the means by which former president, Olusegun Obasanjo accumulated his wealth.

Fayose expressed the sentiment during a recent interview with Osasu Igbinedion on The Osasu Show.

“I am the longest-serving governor, I’ve served in Obasanjo’s administration. I told everybody, when Obasanjo left prison, did he declare his assets? The library now today, where did the money come from,” he asked.

“His house that he built in Abeokuta, where did the money come from? Even Buhari himself, he declared cattle herds and mud houses, he said he doesn’t have money. From which account did the money for the campaign come from?

“We are fooling ourselves, because he’s in power today, to say he’s the one prosecuting; somebody else might be there tomorrow. It’s unfortunate that men of honour of yesterday are quiet today.

“During the third-term agenda that money was given to senators and reps, they were given in my state. It is good to Obasanjo to come to the television every day and celebrate himself, or go to prostrate at the villa. Let me tell you expressly, the truth would find all of us out at some point,” he said.

Fayose had earlier called on President Muhammadu Buhari to probe Obasanjo.
