As the controversy over the funding of election of Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose rages on, top management team of Zenith Bank Plc on Thursday evening visited him at the Government House in Ado-Ekiti.
Their visit to the governor followed a reported denial by the bank that it was not part of the funding of the election.
The team was led by an Executive Director, Sola Oladipo.
When accosted by newsmen, the ED 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.
While commenting on the development, Governor Fayose said the bank officials came to beg him over the issue.
“They were begging me and that the matter should not go beyond this level.
