# Africa News # Ayodele Fayose

I declared the N300m in my Zenith account + Dasuki didn’t sponsor my election– Fayose

 Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has denied claims by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, that he received financial support from the Office of the National Security Adviser, ONSA, under the leadership of ex-National Security Adviser, Col Sambo Dasuki(rtd) during his 2014 governorship election, after EFCC claimed that the money which was part of the arms fund, was paid in parts into the governor’s current account and company account, adding that Fayose personally moved N300m from the money into a fixed deposit account in April 2015.

The governor made the denial while confirming that he had N300m in one of his accounts as alleged by the anti-graft agency.
Recall that the anti-graft agency had accused Fayose of allegedly receiving N1.219bn from ONSA through his associate, Abiodun Agbele.
But in a series of tweets by his Special Adviser on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Fayose rubbished EFCC’s reports that he deposited the money in April 2015, six months after he became governor.

He explained that the money was deposited into his fixed deposit account before he was sworn-in as governor and had declared it in his asset declaration form. Checkout Below tweet by Olayinka Lere…
