There has been considerable controversy surrounding Ekiti state governor Ayodele Fayose of late.
Recently he was accused of receiving campaign funds for the 2015 elections from the Office of the National Security Adviser and implicated in the Arms funds scandal along with former minister of defense Musiliu Obanikoro.
Fayose refuted these claims and stated that he got his campaign funds from Zenith bank and donations from friends and associates.
But Tope Aluko has come out to call Fayose out as a liar and stated that he knew where Fayose’s campaign funds came from and it wasn’t Zenith bank.
In an interview on ADABA 88.9 FM, Aluko said Zenith bank only approached Mr. Fayose after he won the election and that his primary election was sponsored by Transformation Ambassadors of Nigeria (TAN) and the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC).
According to Aluko, Fayose was given N200 million by Zenith bank after he had won the governorship election.
He also 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.
