Ekitigate: You’re A Judas, Fayose Tells Aluko

tope-alukoThe Ekiti State Government has accused the whistleblower on the alleged rigging of the June 21, 2014 governorship election in the state now referred to as ‘Ekitigate’, Tope Aluko, of making millions from the All Progressives Congress, APC, in a bid to remove the state governor, Ayodele Fayose.
It also accused Aluko, who was the Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, during the elections, of feeding the police and the Department of State Services (DSS) with lies that the party stockpiled arms during the June 21, 2014 polls.
The Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media to the Governor, Lere Olayinka, in a statement yesterday labelled Aluko as a “Judas”, who he said would soon be dumped by his “principals”.
Mr. Fayose said it was laughable that Aluko, who was expelled from the PDP is still claiming to be a member of the party.
“Can Aluko be a member of PDP by force even when PDP has said he is not wanted?”
The statement reads: “Aluko and his likes can continue to run from pillar to post. All their efforts will come to naught. Like the Biblical Judas, we will all live to see how those treating him like their man Friday will dump him”.
Describing Aluko’s claims as “talks from a demented mind”, the statement said Nigerians must ask the former PDP scribe why he was unable to deliver his polling unit in Iyin-Ekiti to the PDP, if indeed he was the arrowhead of the rigging.
“Aluko can continue with his journey of political perfidy. He can keep running while enjoying the proceeds of his political 419. But like the Biblical Judas, he can only run; he will be caught by his deeds one day”.


  1. Hmmmm! Now we’re getting there! Calling Aluko ‘Judas’ simply points to the fact that the act of rigging and the use of military personnel for the purpose happened. Now, Lere Olayinka speaking for his principal says Aluko betrayed them. Truth will definitely come out some day.
