Fayose lied against Zenith Bank, money came from Diamond Bank –Aluko

Ekiti-State-Governor-Ayodele-FayoseFormer Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ekiti State, Dr. Temitope Aluko has denied the claim by his ex-political boss, Gov. Ayodele Fayose, the Fayose’s campaign for the June 2014 election was bankrolled by Zenith Bank.

Aluko during a live radio programme monitored in Akure, explained that Zenith Bank, like other banks in the state, only gave Fayose money after he had won the governorship election.

Aluko, who claimed that Fayose did not have up to N10 million in his personal account before contesting the governorship election in 2014, added that the governor’s primary election was sponsored by Transformation Ambassadors of Nigeria (TAN) and the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC).

He claimed that it was after Fayose had won the primary election that cash from the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA) and oil contractors was deployed to fund the election campaign.

Aluko confessed that: “The Presidency gave us security and money, the money was sent from a Diamond Bank branch through an account run by Sylvan MacNamara, a company owned by Obanikoro.

He said Zenith Bank and other corporate organizations came with business proposals after Fayose had won the governorship election, insisting that the governor’s claim that his campaign was sponsored by Zenith Bank was a “blatant lie.”
