Following reports from the grapevine that he owns properties in Dubai, the Ekiti state Governor, Ayo Fayose, has categorically denied the ownership of a property in the Middle East city.
He further challenged anyone with information on the said property in Dubai to make it public, with details.
Speaking through his Special Assistant on Public Communication and New Media, Lere Olayinka, the governor said that he is willing and ready to waive his immunity to be prosecuted if he is linked to any house in Dubai.
The governor added that people who came into power through falsehood and propaganda were still lying even after more than eight months in office.
“I’m not among those lily livered Nigerians that will deny their assets anywhere. They are in the federal government and they should have access to all information both in Nigeria and abroad. I therefore challenge them to check books on owners of all properties in Dubai.”
“If they trace any house to me in Dubai, the federal government should make public all the details including pictures, location and title documents.
“The government should also confiscate such property and I am ready to waive my immunity to be prosecuted.”
While restating his commitment to always stand by the truth at all times, Fayose also stated that; “No amount of their falsehood and propaganda can silence me.”
“They have taken their propaganda to the most ridiculous height and it is shameful that after taking over Nigeria by falsehood, they are still lying to deceive Nigerians just to cover up their lack of solution to the country’s economic problems.”
