EX-PDP Secretary reveals how Ekiti polls were rigged

01 February 2016, 06:56

Abuja - A former Secretary of the Ekiti State chapter of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) has revealed that Governor Ayodele Fayose was given billions of nairas in order to facilitate his win in the state, Punch reports.

Dr. Temitope Aluko, former Secretary in the state, disclosed that an amount of N4.7 billion was granted to Fayose by former President Goodluck Jonathan in order to secure then-Governor Kayode Fayemi's defeat.

In addition, Aluko has also claimed that the election was rigged by members of the party.

Claiming that he was Chairman of the group that prosecuted the election, Aluko claimed that he handled the waiver received by the national branch of the PDP in order to secure his qualification in the governorship election.

Speaking in response to the damning allegations, Fayose has described Aluko as bitter, saying that he will not take issue with the former politician.

Fayose added that Aluko did receive money from various sources. He did not, however, deny that funds were received with regard to his election campaign.

Aluko has since claimed that he was forced to divulge the information due to betrayal given at the hands of Fayose.
