Election Funding: Zenith Bank Executive Directors Storm Ekiti, ‘Begs’ Fayose (PHOTOS)

LAGOS JUNE 24TH (URHOBOTODAY)-It was a spectacle on Thursday as a top management team of Zenith Bank Plc were at the Ekiti State Government House to meet Governor 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 Shola Oladipupo who was accompanied by two zonal directors of the bank and the Ado-Ekiti branch manager.
When accosted by newsmen, the ED said they only came to see the governor. Asked whether the bank really dissociated itself from the claim by the governor that it was part of the funding of the election, Shola could only mutter some inaudible words.
He eventually said the spokesman for the bank was not on the team and could not say anything.
Speaking after the visit, Fayose said: “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?”
The Zenith Bank ED was not categorical on the visit saying the spokesman for the bank was not on the team and could not say anything.
