The Governor of Ondo state, Olusegun Mimiko has asked President Buhari to call the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to order.
The Governor also said the EFCC’s action shows that Nigeria is in crisis, adding that it is a violation of the constitution.
Mimiko said the anti-graft agency does not have the power to freeze the bank account of a sitting Governor because he enjoys immunity, a privilege recognised by the constitution.
The Governor who is also the chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)
Governors’ Forum, issued a statement saying: “What has happened is a blatant and violent infraction on the provision of the Constitution and our democracy.
“It is an attempt to subvert the constitution and it is fascist. The intention is to achieve a penal sanction without going through the due criminal procedure and criminal proceedings.
“What they have done now is to distract the Governor of Ekiti and this is not good for our democracy.”
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) blocked the Zenith bank account of the Ekiti state Governor, Ayo Fayose on Monday, June 20, 2016.
