Ayo Fayose wins EFFC in Court

A Federal High Court sitting in Ado Ekiti, Ekiti State, has ruled that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, lacked the power to investigate the finances of Ekiti State.

According to the ruling pronounced by the court on Tuesday January 30th, 2018, “In federalism, the Federal Government is not an overseer or supervisor regarding the finances of a State.”

The Court said only the State House of Assembly can investigate finances of a State.

The court further restrained the agency from interfering in the running of Ekiti State either by way of investigation or arrest of any official of the State Government
