The former governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission treated Nigerians to another round of comedy during the week. The former governor, who should seek a career in Nollywood, showed up at the EFCC office wearing a T-shirt with the inscription, “EFCC I am here.”
Those who have been following my column for a while would know I am not a fan of Fayose and I am one of those who believe Fayose and Senator Dino Melaye’s rightful place should be in Nollywood. However, the conduct of EFCC in this case leaves much to be desired.
I am not a prophet but I can predict how this case will pan out. The EFCC, which has elevated media trial to an art form, will regale us with tales of Fayose’s infractions. It will just end up as another media trial that would just excite our ears. The case will die a natural death due to lack of diligent prosecution by the EFCC. For now, let’s enjoy the circus.
