Fayose's aide blasts Aluko over reconciliation

05 April 2016, 20:25

Abuja - The Special Assistant to the Ekiti State Governor on Public Communications Lere Olayinka has criticised the former Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ekiti State Temitope Aluko for reconciling with the Governor Ayodele Fayose.

Olayinka said he wondered how Aluko could "return to the same Governor Fayose that he claimed rigged election because he lacked integrity” and “how he will feel when he comes face to face with the people that he has destroyed”.

Olayinka, who said he was speaking in his personal capacity and not as spokesperson of the governor, added that; “Being the person that faced Aluko on Television interviews where he told all the lies that he told against Governor Fayose and the people of Ekiti State, I am constrained to make my position known on this new development.”

He further stated that “Even though Governor Fayose, being someone with large heart may not be too happy that I am making this statement, but as one of the major dramatis personae in the whole saga, my conscience won’t allow me to just keep silent after all the pains and confusion caused by Aluko.

“I did say on Channels Television that giving the right situation or after Aluko must have concluded his scamming of the APC and its gullible leaders, he will return to Governor Fayose and recant everything that he had said.

Both Fayose and Aluko met in Ado Ekiti on Sunday to resolve the lingering crisis between them.
