Fayose's associate rubbishes claim of Zenith Bank's involvement

03 July 2016, 16:33

Abuja – Controversial Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose’s estranged political associate, Tope Aluko, has reportedly rubbished claims by the governor that Zenith Bank sponsored his electioneering in 2014.

According to The Nation, Aluko said Fayose’s campaign was financed by the presidency through the office of the then National Security Adviser, Colonel Sambo Dasuki and some oil contractors.

"We know as a party that there was no record of Zenith Bank sponsorship of our elections," Aluko was quoted as saying.

On Fayose’s financial worth prior to the election campaign, Aluko said he could not boast of N10 million in his account before then, the report said.

Aluko fell out with Fayose after the governorship election.

Fayose's bank accounts as well as that of his close allies have been frozen by the anti-graft agency, EFCC, with the governor openly reiterating that he was principally funded Zenith Bank.

The governor is being charged with the gross mishandling of funds of the account of the Office of the National Security Advisor.
