Zenith Bank did not sponsor Fayose's campaign- Bank MD

Contrary to claims by the Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, that his 2014 Governorship campaign was sponsored by Zenith Bank, the Managing Director of Zenith Bank, Mr. Peter Amangbo, has denied any such claims.
He said the allegation that the bank funded the Ekiti State Governorship election, was false.
Fayose had claimed that his campaign was funded by the bank and a few private individuals.
But speaking to operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Amangbo dismissed Fayose's claims. Stating that Zenith bank had only one branch in Ekiti State, he wondered why the bank would invest in Fayose when the State Government had no account with the bank.
According to an EFCC source, Amangbo said at no time did he meet with Fayose's associate Abiodun Agbele, or any representative of Fayose.
"He further stated that at no time did Fayose and the chairman of the bank, Mr. Jim Ovia, and himself hold a meeting.
"He said the bank, as a matter of policy, did not sponsor political groups or elections," the EFCC source said.
