Aluko denies reconciling with Fayose

06 April 2016, 10:27

Ekiti - Former Secretary of the Ekiti Peoples Democratic Party, Tope Aluko, has dismissed reconciling with Ekiti State Governor Ayo Fayose.

This came barely 48 hours after Fayose and Aluko jointly addressed journalists at the VIP section of the Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, on Sunday.

Last year, Aluko alleged that Fayose, with support from former President Goodluck Jonathan, rigged the governorship election held on June 21, 2014.

Speaking with journalists on Tuesday in Lagos, Aluko, however, alleged that he was under duress when he addressed journalists in company with Fayose.

He added that the event was stage-managed by Fayose and some PDP chieftains to look like a reconciliation.

The former PDP scribe, who recanted his earlier stance, said “One fact remains clear, there is nowhere that I, Temitope Aluko, refuted anything I have earlier said before Nigerians and the whole world about the manipulations that characterised the 2014 Governorship election in Ekiti State.”

He appealed to Nigerians to disregard the peace treaty saying it was a tactical error on his part.
