TKO Aluko: The Man With No Integrity, By Fayose’s Man

Although we are headquartered in Washington D.C. USA, our reporters and editors are working around the globe to cover what you care about. We invite you to donate to our fundraiser to help us keep our quality news free and available for all.

A spokesperson for the Ekiti State Government on Monday described the embattled former Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the State, Mr Temitope Aluko, as a man without integrity who can tell many lies for personal gains.

The Special Assistant to Ekiti State Governor on Public Communications and New Media, Mr. Lere Olayinka, said in a statement that the Sunday’s meeting between Mr. Aluko and Governor Ayodele Fayose vindicated his position that “(Aluko) can make a 360 degree turnaround and return to the same Governor Fayose that he claimed rigged election because he lacked integrity.”

Mr. Olayinka said he was speaking in his personal capacity and not as spokesperson of the governor.

“Being the person that faced Aluko on Television interviews where he told all the lies that he told against Governor Fayose and the people of Ekiti State, I am constrained to make my position known on this new development,” Mr. Olayinka said after the meeting between Mr. Fayose and Mr. Aluko.

“Even though Governor Fayose, being someone with large heart may not be too happy that I am making this statement, but as one of the major dramatis personae in the whole saga, my conscience won’t allow me to just keep silent after all the pains and confusion caused by Aluko.

“I did say on Channels Television that giving the right situation or after Aluko must have concluded his scamming of the APC and its gullible leaders, he will return to Governor Fayose and recant everything that he had said.

“Today, I have been vindicated because Aluko has done just that and I wonder how he will feel when he comes face to face with the people that he has destroyed. I wonder how he will feel when he comes face to face with those fine military officers that he went to Kaduna to lie against and made them to lose their jobs.

“Also, I wonder how those who funded him will be feeling now, having failed to listen when I was consistently saying that they were being duped. I wonder how the Department of State Services (DSS) men who took Aluko’s lies and acted on them by invading the State House of Assembly will feel now that they have integrity problem because of what he (Aluko) made them to do.

“However, I salute my boss, Governor Fayose for once again displaying his statesmanship because only a statesman with a large heart can hold the hands of someone like TKO Aluko after all that he did to pull down his government.

“I also thank God for vindicating me by finally exposing the htpocrisy of Aluko to the whole world to see,” he added .

Mr. Aluko has not explained the circumstances leading to the meeting. He added said Governor had received the backing of former President Goodluck Jonathan and security personnel to rig the Ekiti State governorship election in 2014 for Mr. Fayose.

This week, report said one of the army officers who had been fingered in the alleged rigging by an investigative panel set up by the military was forced to resign from the army.
