Former Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, restated his resolve to submit himself to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, for probe on Tuesday at exactly 1.00 p.m.
He has been accused of financial malpractices while in office.
He could however not be probed because of the immunity which he had.
His time in office as governor ended on Monday.

Fayose restated his position to submit himself on Tuesday, boasting that he was not a coward and would not run away.
This is as the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, warned the anti-graft commission that it should be careful in the way it handled Fayose, insisting that the rule of law must be followed.
Fayose spoke on Monday at a dinner organised for him by the PDP in Abuja.
Said Fayose: “Tell them at the Villa. My name is Ayodele Fayose, Peter the Rock. By the Grace of God, I will be at the EFCC by 1 p.m. I am not a coward.
“Let it be said to them that today is their own, tomorrow is our own. I will not run away, they will rather run away. They took me to Court 13 years ago, I won after eight years.
“They harassed my family and I got judgment three times against them. This time will not be an exception. Those who wait for me will wait in vain. EFCC is no court.”
Meanwhile, issuing a warning to the EFCC, the National Chairman of the PDP, Prince Uche Secondus, said: “The world is watching, international communities are also watching what will happen to this gentleman that has performed well in Ekiti.
“So when you invite him and he honours it, he is not a coward. If you tamper with his human rights and you detain him, the whole world will cry out.”
