Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Doyin Ade­busuyi & Bola Ojuola, Ado Ek­iti

The Kay­ode Fayemi Cam­paign Or­gan­i­sa­tion has de­bunked claims by the Olu­sola Eleka Cam­paign Or­gan­i­sa­tion al­leg­ing the move­ment of N18 bil­lion from Akure Air­port to Ek­iti State for the elec­tion of the APC gov­er­nor­ship can­di­date, Dr. Kay­ode Fayemi.

Eleka’s cam­paign spokesman, Lere Olayinka, had al­leged that the funds were moved from a bank to Ek­iti State to fund Fayemi’s elec­tion.

But a state­ment by Direc­tor of Me­dia and Pub­lic­ity Sec­re­tary, Wole Olu­jobi, de­nied the al­le­ga­tion, say­ing the au­thor of the press re­lease was writ­ing from a “hal­lu­ci­nat­ing imag­i­na­tion” and back­ground of a pro­fes­sional liar.

He said, “Lere Olayinka has a back­ground of in­tegrity de­fi­ciency in in­for­ma­tion dis­sem­i­na­tion in strict com­ple­ment with his boss, Gov­er­nor Ay­o­dele Fayose.”
