Tope Aluko of the Ayodele Fayose election rigging scandal fame has showed up at the state university for the pensioners verification process.
There was drama at Ekiti State University (EKSU), Ado Ekiti on Thursday as the former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Secretary, Dr. Temitope Aluko, showed up for the ongoing verification exercise of pensioners in the institution. Aluko stormed the University’s Pension Office where he was attended to by officials responsible for the exercise.
The former Head of Department of Business Administration in the University displayed his EKSU 2016 Pensioner’s Verification Certificate to reporters and others present.
The Ekiti governorship poll whistleblower said his verification was an evidence that he is a retiree at the state-owned university contrary to the claim by the state government that he was dismissed from service.
Aluko said: “Every three years, you have to appear at EKSU to show that you are alive and that you are a retiree at the university. I am just lucking my (pensioner) certificate now to show that I am a retiree now.
”The (Fayose) government has been saying that I was sacked but this is an evidence that I was not sacked. I built the Department (of Business Administration) from the scratch and rose to become the Head.
“I was never given any query, government people came here looking for my file in a desperate bid to implicate me. I retired here as a Senior Lecturer and I lectured here for 13 years.
“I served on many committees and I was returned as HOD for many times.”
