The Peoples Democratic Party Governors’ Forum has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to call the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, to order.
The forum, described the freezing of the personal accounts of Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose by the EFCC as gross abuse of the constitution.
The forum, which spoke through its Chairman and Ondo State Governor, Dr Olusegun Mimiko said EFCC cannot interfere with the account of a sitting governor, adding that, it was contrary to Section 308 of the 1999 Constitution.
In a statement, the Ondo State governor argued that if the intention was to suggest any criminal infraction or fraud against the governor, the agency should have sheathe its sword till he (Fayose) vacates office.
He further warned that the country was drifting towards totalitarianism, adding that the account of any individual could only be frozen after a court of competent jurisdiction had so ruled or an interim order by a court of competent jurisdiction was granted to the anti graft agency.
