Following its denial of ever funding Governor Ayo Fayose’s gubernatorial campaign in 2014, some Zenith Bank staff paid a visit to plead with him.
The team was led by an Executive Director, Sola Oladipo and had two zonal directors of the bank and the Ado-Ekiti branch manager. As the group were conversing with the governor with some staff of the bank on their knees, the press were ushered into the room, capturing the drama on camera.
When accosted by newsmen, the Executive Director said they only came to see the governor. Asked whether the bank really dissociated itself from the claim by the governor that it was part of the funding of the election, Shola could only mutter some inaudible words. He eventually said the spokesman for the bank was not on the team and could not say anything.
