Former Ekiti State Governor Ayo Fayose has said he would stay and fight his battles .
Fayose whose tenure as governor expires today, is expected to report at the Econimic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) today to respond to allegations against him.
The ex-governor told Peoples Democrtic Party (PDP) governors and leaders at a valedictory dinner for him on Monday in Abuja that
: ‘Tell them at the Villa; my name is Ayodele Fayose, Peter the Rock. By the Grace of God, I will be at the EFCC on Monday by 1pm. I am not a coward.
“I will be there on Tuesday. I am not begging for any bail. It is up to them. If they want me, they should just give me a bed. I have done by bed bedclothes, I have done my pillowcase, I have my English and Yoruba bibles. I am prepared for them. Nobody should worry about me. Only cowards die many times before their deaths.”
“Let it be said to them that today is their own. Tomorrow is our own. I will not run away, they will rather run away. They took me to Court 13 years ago, I won after eightyears.
“They harassed my family and I got judgment three times against them. This time will not be an exception. Those who wait for me will wait in vain. EFCC is no court”.
The EFCC said it had prepared three teams of investigators to quiz the former governor.
