Fayose sacks Press Secretary reportedly over poor media coverage at Eid Prayers



Governor Fayose at the prayer ground for Eid prayers last Friday.


Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti has sacked his Chief Press Secretary, Idowu Adelusi for reportedly failing to provide adequate media coverage when the governor attended Eid prayers on Friday.

A statement by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka said Adelusi was sacked over “dereliction of duty.”

Adelusi’s sack was made via the state-owned radio station.

While no specific reason was given for the sack, a source in the government house told PUNCH that it was because of the Eid incident. The source said:

The governor was livid that there were no journalists in his entourage and that they were not on the ground to cover his entry into the prayer ground.

The governor felt he had taken more than enough from the gentleman and ordered his sacking.

The CPS, however, said he was not aware of the event because it was not officially communicated to him.

He said there was no way he could have arranged for a media coverage for an event he was not aware of. But we hope the matter can be resolved because the governor has a large heart.

    He should have sacked the man who tied that raggedy turban for him. Looks like mortuary bandage.

    How did Ekiti descend so low? Is it because jamb and some universities have lowered standards? Ekiti used to have a lot of educated people. How can this guy be the governor?
    Reminds me of the letter of Paul to Galatians “oh foolish Galatians, who has bewitched you”. Is it voodoo that these politicians use in turning everybody docile? Is that why we read of gory stuff on the media everyday?

    Ekiti people, get rid of this charlatan masquerading as governor. He should not even act in nollywood, his acting is mediocre and please BN publish my comment. It’s the only way to remain in contact with our Jerusalem like the children of Israel who cried by the rivers of Babylon when they remembered their Zion.

    It wasn’t this bad?
