The EFCC recently alerted the Nigeria Custom Service (NCS) to placed Mr Fayose on its watchlist.
The anti-graft agency said this is to prevent the governor from escaping from investigations of alleged abuse of office, money laundering, among others.
“There is a reasonable suspicion suggesting that he may likely leave the country either through the land borders, airports or seaports in order to evade investigation. Hence, you are kindly requested to watch-list him and arrest him,” Ibrahim Magu, acting EFCC chairman said in a letter to the NCS.
Reacting, Fayose on Sunday said having informed the EFCC of his intention to tender himself at the office of the anti-graft agency, the move to watchlist him was political.
The governor said what ever happens he will not dump the Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP).
“@officialEFCC Putting my name on watch list after receiving notification of my coming is not only political but petty,” Fayose said in a tweet via his twitter handle.
“I’m not among those who are afraid to face tomorrow. Nobody is God.
“They should expect me on October 16 by 1pm.
“Whatever they do, I will remain in PDP.”
