Dr Olubunmi Muhammed Balogun, Secretary of Ekiti All Progressives Party (APC) Elders Initiative Forum has reacted to the “reconciliation” between Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State and Tope Aluko, the whistle blower, calling it the most laughable pantomime this side of the Atlantic!
Aluko was the one who went on Channels TV and TVC to spill secrets of how the 2014 governorship election was manipulated with money and soldiers for Governor Ayodele Fayose. Now he has swallowed his vomit.
In the words of Balogun: “Is it Fayose or Tope Aluko that is taking Nigeria for granted? Now I think is high time a spade should be called a spade about Ekitigate instead of turning the whole episode in to a movie that has made Ekiti a butt of beer joint jokes”
According to a report by TheNEWS: ‘Dr Temitope Aluko, the Ekiti politician who went on Channels TV and TVC to spill secrets of how the 2014 governorship election was manipulated with money and soldiers for Governor Ayodele Fayose, has swallowed his vomit.
He has now reconciled with his governor, with both of them facing journalists and the camera last night in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital.
The shameless politician who a few days ago said he only made restitution by coming out with the secrets, was a former secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party in the state.
What he and Fayose agreed may never be known to the public. Fayose on camera said Aluko is his son and that whatever happened in the past is now history.
Aluko, while he ran his mouth about town, telling Nigerians about the $37million earmarked by former president Goodluck Jonathan, was said to be on the payroll of a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress.
Obviously the APC man’s money, said to be double digit millions, has expired, as he entertained no shame in embracing Fayose.
Last Wednesday, Aluko was still caught in a tiff with Fayose after he was called Judas by a government spokesman.
“I was shocked when the government said I’m Judas. The government is the Judas because it betrayed me,” he said in return.’
