Gov. Fayose of Ekiti State floors the EFCC.

Fayose just defeated the EFCC again.

The Federal High Court, Ado Ekiti has ruled that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC lacks the powers to investigate the finances of a State.

“Under a federation, the Federal Government is not an overseer or supervisor as regards the finances of a State”, ruled the Federal High Court earlier today.

It further added that only the State House of Assembly and the Auditor General of a State are empowered to investigate the finances of a State.

The EFCC is therefore barred from interfering in the running of Ekiti State by “either investigating or arresting any official of the State Government.

Details soon.
