Fayose: Why I Did Not Pick Aluko As My Cos, Dismisses His Rantings by MrImole: 5:09pm On Feb 02, 2016
Fayose: Why I did not pick Aluko as my CoS, dismisses
his rantings
Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose, has said
the allegation by the former Ekiti State Secretary
of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Tope Aluko,
that the military was used to influence the outcome
of the June 21, 2014 governorship election in the
state was another ploy in the fruitless efforts by
the All Progressives Congress to rubbish the mandate
freely given him by the people of the state.
He also said such a wild allegation could only have
come from a questionable character like Aluko who he
refused to appoint his Chief of Staff because he
could not be entrusted with such sensitive position.
He spoke in a broadcast on state television and radio
in Ado-Ekiti yesterday.
In a statement by the governor's Chief Press
Secretary, Idowu Adelusi, the governor said the
election that ushered him to office was conducted
about 20 months ago and applauded by the election
observers and the international communities,
wondered when the opposition would stop licking their
wounds.
Fayose said " all these steps are being taken by the
APC to silence me because of my criticism of
obnoxious policies of Buhari administration, but I
cannot be silenced. If I Ayo Fayose remains the last
man standing to put Buhari administration on its toes,
I will not look back. Strong opposition is ingredient of
virile democracy.i don't have skeleton in my cupboard.
If the APC has any concrete evidence against me, it
should give it to the EFCC."
Fayose added that he felt sorry for Aluko because he
had allowed those who rented him to do the very dirty
job to destroy him totally therefore bringing shame
upon himself and his family.
The Governor continued, " It is very obvious that
those who rented him will keep him at alms lenght
believing that what he did to me, he will do same to
them.
"From Aluko's ranting, one could see that he wants to
poison our waters because he did not get the position
he expected in our administration. He complained
that he was not made the Chief of Staff, how could
somebody with great lust for money and insatiable
drive to jump from one camp to the other be trusted
with such a sensitive post. I was advised by well-
meaning Ekiti people not to trust him with sensitive
positions because of his greed.
"As the state secretary of the party, he was going
from one aspirant to the other to collect money,
using his position. When he was at the state-owned
university, he was sacked because of certificate
racketeering. Pressure was mounted on me not to
appoint him otherwise he would put cerdibility
problem on my administration. I therefore offered
him another position which he rejected. He thinks he
wants to rubbish me and my electoral victory but he
is only putting himself and his family to shame.
"if he hopes to reap anything from this wild chase, he
will only reap the whirlwind. The APC can never trust
him with anything because they know that what he did
to me, he would do to them. He was the principal
witness of the PDP even up to the Supreme Court
where he said under oath that the election was free
and fair and now at what point was the election
flawed?
"I pity the young man. He is only being used by the
opposition and they will soon dump him after they are
done with him. I won the election about 20 months ago
and they are yet to come to term with the hurricane
that hit them. First, they blamed what they called
'photochromic' for their defeat.
"When that did not sell, they tried a futile
impeachment exercise and also they failed. They
came up with a military panel, which could in no way
act as an appellate court over the process stipulated
by the Electoral Law.
"Under normal circumstance, Aluko ought to be
arrested and tried for perjury. He was the PDP
witness in the tribunal and it meant he lied under
oath. The powers that be in Abuja may not see it that
way because he is doing their bidding now. Nigerians
should ask him to provide evidence for his claims and
whether it was the military that helped the PDP
thrashed the APC in the general elections last
