Fayose rewards detained lawmaker with N15m-worth car gift



The Governor of Ekiti State, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, yesterday rewarded the state lawmaker, Afolabi Akanni, detained by the Department of State Service (DSS) with a car gift.


Akanni, who represents Efon constituency in the state House of Assembly, spent many days in the custody of the DSS after being arrested on March 4 for undisclosed reasons.


The lawmaker, who arrived in the state on Thursday, vowed not to betray the governor for any reason, after he was handed the keys to the car.


He said, “I can authoritatively say that the governor is a great leader and a great mentor. He remains a very honest man who also stands by his followers. I was so sure that he will fight my cause while in detention and I was not disappointed.”

The governor, while presenting the car key to Akanni, said that the DSS only succeeded in tarnishing its own image by attempting to allegedly coerce members of the state’s Assembly to act the script of his detractors, which is to impeach him.
