Obanikoro brought in N2.1bn cash for Fayose’s election – Tope Aluko

The 2014 election of Ekiti state governor, Ayodele Fayose, was partly funded with cash from the the Office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA) under Col. Sambo Dasuki, and some contractors, says the former secretary of Peoples Democratic in Ekiti State, Dr. Temitope Aluko.

He revealed this on Tuesday during an interview on ADABA 88.9 FM, where he stated that the governor lied that his election was funded by Zenith Bank.

He further said Fayose gave N200 million to Zenith bank after he won the election, noting that the governor had less than N10 million in his personal account before he came to vie for the election.

Aluko alleged that Fayose’s primary election was also funded by the Transformation Ambassadors of Nigeria and the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation.

“The Presidency gave us security and money; the money was sent from a Diamond Bank branch through an account run by Sylvan MacNamara, a company owned by Obanikoro.

“My boss (Fayose) said he wanted to get his own (funds) in cash and that was why arrangement was made to get his own in cash and that was why such a huge amount (N2.1bn) was ferried by plane. Obanikoro cannot claim not to have brought the money.

“He (Fayose) chose his man, Abiodun Agbele, to keep the money in a Zenith Bank account and the money was lodged at Zenith Bank, Alagbaka Branch in Akure. The transaction was not recorded and it got to a stage when it was discovered that the money was short by N80m.

“This caused a crisis between Fayose and Obanikoro who brought money thrice from Abuja. He (Obanikoro) brought other things apart from money which I won’t disclose now and it was from it that N1bn was released to INEC officials to manipulate Ekiti and Osun polls.”
