Election funding: Zenith Bank Has Begged Me , Fayose Claims

zenith3Top management team of Zenith Bank Plc on Thursday evening came to beg the Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose, over the involvement of the bank
in the funding of the June 21, 2014 governorship election of the governor.

Their visit to the governor followed a reported denial by the bank that it
was not part of the funding of the election.

The team was led by an Executive Director, Sola Oladipo, according to  an e-mail circulated by Fayose media team.

The team  also had two zonal directors of the bank and the Ado-Ekiti branch
manager.
When accosted by newsmen, the ED  allegedly said they only came to see the governor.

He also said the spokesman for the bank was not on the team and could

not say anything.

While commenting on the development, Governor Fayose said the bank
officials came to beg him over the issue.

“They were begging me and that the matter should not go beyond this level.
I asked them why did they go to the EFCC to tell lies. Why did they have to
lie that money came from the Office of the National Security Adviser? If
the money is for me why did they have to link with me what is not,” Fayose said.
