The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governors’ Forum has described the freezing of the personal accounts of Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) as gross abuse of the constitution.

Speaking through its Chairman and Ondo State Governor, Dr Olusegun Mimiko, the forum called on President Muhammadu Buhari to call the anti-graft agency to order.

Mimiko said EFCC cannot interfere with the account of a sitting governor, adding that, it was contrary to Section 308 of the 1999 Constitution.

In a statement, the PDP Governors’ Forum chairman argued that if the intention is to suggest any criminal infraction or fraud against the governor, the agency should have sheathe its sword till he (Fayose) vacates office.

Mimiko warned that the country is drifting towards totalitarianism, insisting that the account of any individual could only be frozen after a court of competent jurisdiction has so ruled or an interim order by a court of competent jurisdiction is granted to the anti graft agency.
