Opeyemi Bamidele, a member of the House of Representatives, has refuted allegations of electoral back hand dealings levelled against him by the Special Assistant to Governor Ayodele Fayose on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka.

According to Punch, Olayinka alleged that the embattled former state secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dr. Tope Aluko, sold his mandate to Bamidele for $100,000 in the 2011 elections.

The House of Rep member however said he did not pay any money to Aluko to win the elections.

Bamidele through his Media Aide, Ahmed Salami, warned Olayinka to stop spreading false information.

Adding that it was an attempt by Fayose and his media aide, to shift the public’s attention from the recent allegations of rigging levelled against him by Aluko.

Aluko  alleged that Governor Ayo Fayose received $37 million from former President, Goodluck Jonathan to rig the June 2014 elections in the state.

He also said the Ekiti Governor used the Nigerian Army to rig the governorship elections in the state.
