Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has dismissed the statement being credited to him on the travail of Senator-Elect, Buruji Kashamu in the hands of men of the NDLEA, saying he never made any such statement.
Fayose, who spoke through his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, said the comment must have been generated by desperate political spin doctors to link him with what he knew nothing about.
The statement read; “Kindly disregard any press statement being circulated that I made on Prince Buruji Kashamu today.
“I have not made any press statement on the travail of Buruji Kashamu today both on Twitter and Facebook or any social media platform.
“Obviously, the comment being referred to was generated by desperate political spin doctors with ulterior motives and their motive must be
to drag me into what does not concern me as a governor.
“For all intent and purposes, the issue relating to Prince Buruji Kashamu is not political and I as a governor does not have anything to do with it.”
