A member of the Peoples Democratic Party, Mr. Tope Aluko who had earlier alleged in January that the elections in Ekiti state were rigged has made a dramatic turnaround.
Mr. Aluko told Channels TV in January 2016, “Before the Primaries, we had this believe that because Jonathan was coming out for second term and because we are going to be the first election in the south-west, at a meeting, we told him (former President Goodluck Jonathan) that north-east, north-west and north-central may not be too sure for him because the Hausas are clamouring for presidency and that you now have south-east and south-south, you must manage the south-west”.
“It was on the basis of that that we told him that he must manage south-west.
“Because of his interest, even before winning the primaries, we did so many security reports to tell Mr President then that he must make sure that we manage south-west zone and it was because of that that he gave us the head of security agencies,”
In a press conference with the Ekiti state governor yesterday, Mr Aluko said he had made ‘peace’ with the governor.
