Change Nigeria Movement (CNM) yesterday accused the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and Nigerian Customs Service (NSC) of being partisan and anti-democratic for placing Ekiti State governor, Ayodele Fayose, on its watchlist.

In a statement by its National Director of Information and Strategy, Abubakar Usman, the socio-political pressure group described the action of both government agencies as an open declaration of war against the 1999 Constitution as amended.

CNM gave the EFCC chairman, Ibrahim Magu, and the Comptroller-General of Customs, Hamid Alli, 24 hours to withdraw the memo that placed Fayose on security watch-list, and apologise to Nigerians for subjecting the two institutions to ridicule and public opprobrium or face mass action.

The group stated: “We say very expressly that this is not about Fayose.

The governor should face the full wrath of the law, if he has stolen the commonwealth of his people.
