Fayose,  who stormed the House of Assembly at about 1:15pm, went straight to the office of the Speaker,  Hon.  Funminiyi Afuye,  with the speaker inviting other principal officers of the House,  including the Deputy Speaker,  Mojeed Jamiu.

Speaking to journalists at the House of Assembly,  Fayose who declared that he was ready if the House was ready, said: “I’m a clear conscience,  I fear no accusation.”

He said: “When I read it online yesterday,  that I have been summoned to appear before the House,  I called the speaker to confirm the story and when he confirmed it,  I told him of my readiness to appear before the House today or anytime.

“This is because I am one Nigerian who is not afraid of being asked questions and answering them.

“When the EFCC said they needed me,  I made myself available to them at the exact time and day that I promised.

“To me,  leadership is about responsibility and we as leaders must always demonstrate that we are responsible.”

Asked if he was not afraid that it could be political witch-hunt, he said; “Even if it is political witch-hunt,   am not bothered. What is important is that my conscience is free.

“For me,   I have done my bit,  I will be available for any investigation.”

Meanwhile,  as the former governor left the House of Assembly,  he was attacked by thugs in a government
Toyota Hilux with black coloured doors and white coloured body.

The thugs,  brandishing dangerous weapons like cutlasses and sticks hit the vehicle convening the governor with sticks and attempted to block his convoy.

One of the thugs was identified as Bidemi Genesis and it was gathered that they could have been  alerted of the governor’s presence by the Deputy Speaker.
