Former Commissioner for Finance and Economic Development in Ekiti State, Mr. Dapo Kolawole, has urged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to investigate some projects being executed by the state Governor, Ayo Fayose.
Kolawole said the anti-graft agency should investigate the Ikere township road project in the state.
He said the administration of former Governor Kayode Fayemi, in which he served, had paid N1.3 billion mobilization fee only for the Fayose administration to restrict construction to Ikere township.
He said the dualisation of the road to Ondo State boundary was awarded to China Railway 3 Construction Company but the firm was allegedly driven away by Fayose for Kopek Construction Limited.
The ex-commissioner urged EFCC to investigate what happened to the N1.3 billion paid by Fayemi and how Fayose started work “without the approval of the House of Assembly led by Dr. Adewale Omirin.”
Kolawole, who spoke at a news conference in Ado-Ekiti on Monday, said the Ado-Ekiti Flyover and the new Oja Oba Market projects, were being executed with funds from the Federal Government.
Kolawole also described the government’s 10-year ban on him and Fayemi as a “sacrilege.”
