05 July 2016, Ado-Ekiti – As against the denials of Governor Ayodele Fayose that he never got any money from the office of the former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (retd.), the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Secretary in Ekiti State, Dr. Temitope Aluko has revealed that the governor’s election was indeed funded with cash from Dasuki’s office and some oil contractors.

Aluko, who claimed that Zenith Bank did not sponsor the campaign of Governor Ayo Fayose, but only made a token donation of N200 million after he had won the governorship election.

Aluko made this disclosure during a live interview programme on ADABA 88.9 FM monitored in Ado Ekiti on Tuesday. Aluko who said Fayose was not a buoyant man before coming out to contest the 2014 governorship election, added the Governor only had a little close to N10 million in his personal account, also revealed that his primary election was sponsored by Transformation Ambassadors of Nigeria (TAN) and the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) Towers in Abuja.

The Ekiti poll fraud whistleblower revealed that it was after Fayose had won the Ekiti PDP primary that cash from the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA) and oil contractors was deployed to fund the campaign for the main election.

He said Zenith Bank and other corporate organizations came in with business proposals after Fayose had won the election maintaining that the governor’s claim that his campaign was sponsored by Zenith Bank was a “blatant lie.”

Aluko explained during the interview that Fayose purchased five houses with the N2.3 billion, which was a remainder of the slush funds from ONSA in choice locations like Abuja, Banana Island and Victoria Island in Lagos.
