Ghana Financial Intelligence Probes Ekiti Gov. Fayemi On Multi-million Dollar Fraud

The fraudulent activities of Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi and his wife, Bisi Fayemi have been brought to the fore in Ghana, with a petition accusing the governor and his wife of laundering $250 million now before the Financial Intelligence Center (FIC) in Accra, Ghana. FIC is Ghana’s version of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

This, sources alleged may be connected with the sudden trip the Governor made to Ghana two weeks ago. Source disclosed that Fayemi traveled to Ghana unaccompanied by any aides and spent two days.

According to a report published in the Friday, March 28, 2014 edition of THE ENQUIRER, a newspaper in Ghana, the duo of Fayemi and his wife allegedly laundered over $250 million, under the guise of doing humanitarian work, using the African Women Development Fund (AWDF) as front.

In the petition dated March 5, 2014, Fayemi and his wife, were alleged to be the ring leaders of a cross-border money-laundering gig that straddles Ghana and Nigeria.

The publication read; the attention of the Financial Intelligence Center (FIC) in Accra has been gravitated towards the Governor of Ekiti State in Nigeria and his wife, who are alleged to be the ring leaders of a cross-border money-laundering gig that straddles Ghana and Nigeria.

Dr Kayode Fayemi and wife, Mrs Bisi Fayemi, stand accused in a petition to the FIC of being partners in crime in the laundering of over US$250 million across the two countries.

The Africa Unity Movement (AUM), which put the FIC on the tail of the Ekiti State Governor and his wife, said in a March 5th 2014 petition that Dr and Mrs Fayemi had siphoned the money from the coffers of Ekiti State and that he had piped it into huge investments in Ghana.
The petition which was signed by Ojaomo Tolulope Oluwatosin, Parliamentary Counsel for the AUM reads “It must be noted that up to the sum of 250 million US dollars might have been laundered through this institution (AWDF) and other sources with the connivance of Mrs Bisi Fayemi who happens to be a director and founding member of African Women Development Fund.”

The petition also noted that there have been several publications in Nigeria exposing Ghana as the safe haven for wealth, allegedly acquired illegally by Dr Fayemi and his wife.
“It is on record that they own choice properties around East Legon and its environs. It is no longer news that he owns a university college in Ghana and many more, all acquired with illegal funds from Nigeria,” the petition said.

A copy of the petition, which was said to have been addressed to the Chief Executive Officer of FIC, was intercepted by The Enquirer and the paper linked the alleged criminal activities of Dr Fayemi and his wife to the broader financial crime wave in West Africa and assessed that the recent erosion in value in the Cedi could be blamed on the fester of such criminality in the sub-region.

The petition was said to have expressed disgust at the fact that usually, white-colour criminals, allegedly in ilk of the Ekiti State Executive Governor, are held as heroes of the system and the demi-gods of society. “You will agree with me that the bane of development in Nigeria today is the problem of endemic corruption and perpetrators are mostly the most powerful in Nigeria and we are sure the case of James Ibori, a former governor of oil rich Delta State, is still fresh in our memories and will serve as an eye opener. “He was treated like a king and (made) untouchable in Nigeria but among all odds, the Metropolitan Police in the UK was able to nail him for conviction before a British court.” the paper explained.

On the score of the conviction of James Ibori, the AUM was alleged to have petitioned and challenge the FIC to launch investigations into the activities of Dr Kayode Fayemi and his wife, saying the AUM believed in Ghana because of the country’s democratic credentials.

In addition to the $250 million that the Ekiti State Governor and his wife are alleged to have laundered, the AUM also urged the FIC to investigate every financial deal that the couple have undertaken in Ghana, especially, the records from all financial institutions in relation to their dealing since October 2010.

We will keep you posted on the story which rear its head at this period when the Governor is currently campagining for re-election.

Nigeria is a country where anything goes as it was once said and this much has been allowing some establishments to maltreat Nigerians while the government looks on, for sometimes now there has been so many complain about the reckless abandonment with which some telecommunication companies has been treating their Nigerian customers a situation that has seen helpless Nigerians loose several billions on daily basis, but recently Etisalat has decided to take this cruel act up another notch a situation that has seen the company embark on series of indiscriminate removal of both air and data time.

There has recently been series of complain by Nigerians on the indiscriminate recklessness with which Etisalat Nigeria is fraudulently deducting time from account of people using the network, narrating his experience Bunmi explained that he was surprised when after recharging his phone with N200 voucher to be informed minutes after, when he was trying to make a call the purpose for which the airtime was bought that he’s not having airtime. A situation that sees him put a call across to their customer care only to be informed that the newly loaded airtime was removed because he was browsing a situation he claimed was a mystery as he’s still having internet data on his line even as at that time while the whole incident was less than 10 minutes after the voucher was loaded.

Etisalat has for sometimes now being engaging in activities that has been raising questions about the kind of services they renders, they had in the past said to have been doing all sort of things just in their quest to make money through fraudulent ways. They were at a time accused of connecting consumers to promos they did not subscribe to a situation they used in generating money without the people knowing, the telecoms company it was gathered has been engaging all sort of sharp practices which is contrary to the laid down procedure by the Nigeria Communications Commission (NCC).

It is to note that at inception Etisalat operated in such a way that made it the toast of many Nigerians who trooped out to join the rapid growing subscribers base of the telecommunication company and it is not surprising when despite the fact that it is the last among the country’s four Global System Mobile (GSM) operators it takes no time in it competing subscribers wise with other established GSM operators that has been running years before it.
