Two lawyers in Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State capital, Ibrahim Olanrewaju and Adeoye Aribasoye, have said the report of the five-man panel, which investigated the alleged embezzlement of N852 million State Universal Basic Education (SUBEB) cash has exposed the alleged deceit of Governor Ayo Fayose.

The duo featured in a Yoruba interview programme, Isejoba Rere (Good Governance) on Federal Radio Corporation of Nigeria’s (FRCN’s) Progress 100.5 FM, monitored yesterday.

They noted that the report last week absolved former Governor Kayode Fayemi of complicity in the alleged looting of the cash.

Olanrewaju praised the chairman of the panel, the Oluyin of Iyin-Ekiti, Oba Ademola Ajakaiye, for standing on the side of truth and carrying out the assignment with the fear of God.

He said history would be kind to the monarch for not being used to frame “an innocent person”.

The lawyer also hailed the media for the courage to publish the story without bias.

He added that the media removed ‘’veil of falsehood’’ from the face of the public, who he said was deceived for almost three years.

Olanrewaju said: “The government in power in Ekiti State is that of deceit. It has used the Internet and social media to smear Fayemi’s name. But the man left the battle to God to fight for him. We thank God that the truth has prevailed.

“We want to commend the media for unearthing the report, which has allowed the public to know the truth. The media have helped us to know the truth, and we are happy for this.”

Aribasoye said: “This government, on assumption of office, laid the foundation with lies and bogus claims of huge debts it said Fayemi left behind. At various times, the governor announced the debt figure was N86 billion before bandying N56 billion and N31 billion.

“The governor approached the Federal Government for a six-month moratorium, which was granted. Yet, he claimed the debt was affecting his performance. But the cries of debt were aimed at deceiving our people.

“This was despite the fact that he was receiving N1.3 billion budget support fund monthly, a refund of N2 billion ecological fund and refund on roads, all from the Federal Government.”
