Rumour has it that the Governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose, is planning an anti-President Muhammadu Buhari protest for Monday.
According to sources close to the State Government, the protest is meant to hold against the freezing of Fayose’s account with Zenith Bank Plc by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

Fayose’s account was frozen by the EFCC following the tracing of part of the N4.7 billion meant for the purchase of arms by the Office of the National Security Adviser to the account.
The money was said to have been used to prosecute the 2014 governorship election in Ekiti State that produced Fayose.
We also heard that governor Fayose has approached the students of Ekiti State University for the purpose of the protest. He has also contacted the Federation of Ekiti State Students Union and members of the National Union of Local Government Employees.
However, there were indications that none of those approached has agreed to join the protest.
These followed days after Fayose alleged that some top management staff of Zenith Bank had come to beg him for forgiveness.
However, the information circulating states that those that came were those led by a relative of the governor that he helped secure employment in the Bank.
He was said to have vowed to drag the Bank down along with him after his plea that the Bank should not provide the details of the transactions on the account to the EFCC.
The Bank, according to informed sources, had no choice but to provide the needed information to the EFCC, resulting in Fayose alleging that the Bank bankrolled his election.
