Lere Olayinka, the spokesman for Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has said the embattled former Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the State, Mr Temitope Aluko evidently lacks integrity following his reconciliatory meeting with the Governor on Saturday, April 2.

Aluko had confessed on live TV how Fayose, with the support of former president Goodluck Jonathan, allegedly rigged the 2014 governorship election in the state

Olayinka, who said he was speaking in his personal capacity and not as the Governor's spokesman, said he is compelled to air his view on the matter 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."

“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," he said.

“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 hypocrisy of Aluko to the whole world to see,” Olayinka stated.

According to a video recorded at their peace meeting in Lagos last Saturday, Aluko was seen standing beside Fayose, addressing journalists.

He said he has put the past behind him, while the Governor also described Aluko as his "son" and "boy."

Aluko was believed to have turned against Fayose because the Governor failed to make him (Aluko) his Chief of Staff.
