Unconfirmed reports have it that Zenith Bank Plc has meted out punishment to one bank official, who was pictured on his knees at Ayo Fayose’s residence in Abuja pleading with with the governor over the funding of the 2014 gubernatorial election in Ekiti.
Zenith Bank Plc staff, Bunmi Falana aka Bumshaka, has been reportedly demoted to a mere marketer by the leadership of the bank over his culpability in the unpopular saga with the Ekiti state governor, Ayodele Fayose over allegations of illicit funding.
According to rumours, Falana has also been told to resume work at a branch in Agbara Lagos immediately. This happened after he was caught on camera kneeling down to beg Fayose to help conceal his role in the issuance and management of illicit funds that has attracted the attention of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission who have currently frozen the Governor’s personal bank accounts.
Other reports have described Falana as a close associate of the vocal People’s Democratic Party cheiftain who is said to have facilitated his employment in the bank as well as his undeserved rapid promotion.
Zenith bank is yet to issue an official statement to clear the air on the claims that the corporate body solely funded the election of Fayose which is against the provisions of the Companies and Allied Matters Act.
