The governorship candidate of Peoples Democratic Party in Ekiti State , Prof . Kolapo Olusola , has accused the Federal Government of shifting section of the $ 321 m recovered from the late Abacha family to Ekiti for Saturday ’s governorship election .

Olusola , who is the incumbent deputy governor , said about $50 m of the recovered loot used to be moved from Abuja in a chartered flight through Akure Airport to Ekiti in two bullion trucks to guide the All Progressives Congress governorship candidate , Dr Kayode Fayemi.

The Director , Media and Publicity of Kolapo Olusola Campaign Organisation , Lere Olayinka , raised this alarm at a press briefing in Ado Ekiti on Thursday .

Olusola claimed that preliminary findings indicated that N 2. 5bn money was transferred by means of the Kebbi State Government to an account in UBA , Wuse Zone 4 , Abuja .

Last week Saturday, two bullion vehicles were moved to the Akure Airport to evacuate cash brought from Abuja by a chartered flight .

“The flight landed when it was raining and all staff members of the airport were barred from going near the aircraft while the cash was evacuated into the two bullion vehicles .

“After offloading the huge cash , the bullion van first moved to the Ondo State Government House in Akure from where they left for Isan Ekiti , the hometown of the APC governorship candidate , Dr Kayode Fayemi .”

It was withdrawn immediately and moved with a private jet to Akure . Also , apart from the N 2 .5 bn , another $ 50 m ( about N18 bn ) was taken from the $ 321 m recovered from the late Abacha family.

“Our question is , how can a government that claimed to be fighting corruption released billions of naira from the public coffers for the governorship election of a single state ? Where is their fight against corruption ?”
