Zenith Bank denies bankrolling Gov's Fayose second term campaign

Management of the Zenith Bank Plc have denied bankrolling Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose's campaign for his second term in office.

As indicated by a few tweets by SaharaReporters, the bank denied subsidizing or loaning the Governor any entirety of cash to help his second term campaign.

The report alleged further that the Governor, who had earlier boasted about the bank's funding while defending allegations that funds meant for procurement of arms were traced to his Zenith bank accounts, approached the bank to conceal how the NSA funds were laundered.

It was further reported that Zenith bank had furnished the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission with all documents required and requested in the agency's investigation.

However, this move, was reported to have irked the governor, who has maintained he got funds to campaign for his re-election bid through donations and Zenith bank backing.

On Wednesday, June 22, 2016, Gov Fayose, who spoke through his Chief Press Secretary, Idowu Adelusi said “The management of Zenith Bank, which majorly funded my election, called me to a meeting where I was assured that fund will be provided for my election."

Gov Fayose had before blamed President Buhari and his better half for being degenerate after the EFCC solidified his Zenith Bank accounts over assertions of his inclusion in the multi billion dollars armsn fraud.
