Zenith Bank has denied the allegation of funding of Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State as alleged by the governor.
A source in the bank who spoke with CKN News on condition of anonymity this evening described the allegations of Governor Fayose as laughable
According to him, Fayose is a drowning man holding on to a straw and looking for people to go down with him.
The source described Fayose as a pathological liar who refused to state the true state of affairs between him and Zenith.
He opined that Fayose’s grouse with Zenith bank was the fact that the bank heeded the instruction of the EFCC to freeze Fayose’s account while investigation is ongoing.
We went on to say, “come to think of it CKN news,how much is Ekiti State monthly allocations from the Federal account. How much is the monthly IGR of Ekiti compared to other States like Lagos, Rivers and other A1 list states of the Federation that Zenith Bank will decide to fund his campaign as alleged.
The insider went further to say that Fayose actually wanted Zenith bank to conceal the money he got from the office of the former NSA Sambo Dasuki which he lodged with the bank,which we refused.
When we realized the discrepancy on his account , we fully cooperated with the graft agency for the good of Nigeria.
We have been in operation for decades and have maintained a high standard in all our financial dealings according to laid down procedures and ethics guiding the industry.
He have handed all the necessary documents about Fayose and his transactions to EFCC and this got him upset.
Governor Fayose should leave our Bank out of his problems .He should go and clear his name with EFCC rather than looking for those to go down with him he opined.
Governor Ayodele Fayose had earlier stated that his campaign was funded by the bank,a statement which many believe sounds unbelievable.
The graft agencies during the week freeze his account with Zenith bank. An action which Fayose has condemned.
