What? Tope Aluko Makes U-Turn Again, Says Fayose Staged Our ‘Peace Reconciliation’


Mr Tope Aluko needs to stop playing Nigerians o, ahn ahn, this is one funny man. So barely 48 hours after Governor Fayose and Aluko jointly addressed journalists at the VIP section of the Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos on Sunday, a new twist crept into the reconciliation yesterday when the former Secretary of the Ekiti Peoples Democratic Party, Tope Aluko, later denied reconciling with Fayose.

Speaking with journalists, Aluko, alleged that he was under duress when he addressed journalists in the company of the governor saying he was made to do so, adding that the event was stage-managed by Fayose and some PDP chieftains to look like a reconciliation. His words after the cut.

“I received a call from two senior members of the party. One of them is a serving senator and the other is a former governor. I was told to come to the Eko Hotel to meet with them and I went in company with my wife.

“We were halfway into the discussion, which they tagged as a ‘Peace parley’. It should be noted that no reference was made to the 2014 (Ekiti) governorship election and the aftermath, including my revelation to the public about the way the election was rigged in favour of Ayo Fayose.

“I was shocked to see Governor Fayose walk into the meeting at this point. I won’t want to bore you with the drama and the face-off that ensued between me and Governor Fayose at the meeting.

“It is worthy of note that it was at this point that my wife barged into the meeting to inform me that she noticed the presence of pressmen downstairs, saying, ‘there is a problem’, but Fayose interrupted her and said, ‘Madam, there is no problem’.

Aluko said he stood by all the allegations he had earlier made about former President Goodluck Jonathan assisting Fayose to rig the 2014 Ekiti governorship election with the provision of security operatives and funds. He also said he played along after sensing that his life might be in danger, but he refused to disclose the source of danger.
