Governor Ayo Fayose’s claim that his election was sponsored by Zenith bank is a “blatant” lie, according to former secretary of the People Democratic Party in Ekiti State, Mr. Tope Aluko.
Speaking on ADABA 88.9 FM, Aluko said Zenith bank approached Mr. Fayose after he won the election.
Aluko said Fayose did not have up to N10 million in his personal account before contesting the governorship election in 2014. He said his primary election was sponsored by Transformation Ambassadors of Nigeria (TAN) and the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC).
Fayose was given N200 million by Zenith bank after he had won the governorship election, he said.
He added that Fayose got cash from the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA) after he won the primary, and that oil contractors were deployed to fund the election campaign.
