Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose has accused the Federal Government of protecting Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain in the state, Tope Aluko from prosecution for perjury.

Aluko recently alleged that the June 2014 elections in the state had been rigged in Fayose’s favour despite earlier testifying that the polls were free and fair.

The governor made the allegation via a statement released by his media aide, Idowu Adelusi.

It reads:

“To Aluko and his sponsors, he is a whistle-blower; one thing we are sure of is that the whistle will eventually explode on Aluko’s face as well as the faces of his sponsors.”

“Aluko is the one who said he saw white and that the white has now turned black. Nigerians are demanding that he should be brought to the open to explain what he said and maintained up to the Supreme Court level has changed.”

“He testified under oath at the tribunal, Appeal Court and even the Supreme Court, and he came out again to recant. A vital arm of government, the judiciary, issued a valid order for his arrest and prosecution and that was widely publicised, but surprisingly, the federal government is using the DSS to frustrate that by pretending to be interrogating him and shielding him from facing trial.”

“Democracy is hinged on separation of powers sand the rule of law so that nobody or arm of government would become the all-in-all. Those who are in authority now should know that others have been there before them and if their predecessors had turned everything upside down, what would they have met?”

“If Aluko and his sponsors are sure of their allegations, let them release him for trial in the open court. The people of Ekiti State who voted overwhelmingly for Fayose and the PDP are ready to defend the mandate they freely gave.”

“Every attempt they have made to rubbish the mandate have always failed, including this Aluko plot and nobody should use an agent of government to cover the shame some people willingly brought on themselves by chasing shadows.”

Aluko had also alleged that Fayose received $37 million from former president, Goodluck Jonathan to rig the elections.
