Governor Fayose sacks his Chief Press Secretary over Eid el-kabir prayers | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f


Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has sacked his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Idowu Adelusi.

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

The statement, which was announced on the state-owned radio station, did not explain the specific offence committed by Adelusi.

But a source in the Governor’s Office said Adelusi was sacked because he failed to organise adequate media coverage for the Eid prayer in Ado Ekiti, which the governor attended on Friday.

Olayinka 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.”

When contacted, Olayinka confirmed the development. He explained that he issued the statement based on the directive of the governor.

He, however, failed to provide further details on the incident.

  1. WHAT? Governor Fayose in Muslim attire or who is this? WOW !!! Unbelievable and wonders shall never end. Anyway I thought this guy is a Christian or a Christian PLAYER !!! And getting someone's job based on inedequate publicity on his attendance of Edi el-Kabir prayers is another thing entirely. Whatever, Jesus Christ God's Son still loves u and loves all. Anyway be blessed inJesusChristname. As usual, Today Sunday 09032017 @ 3:02am.

  2. He is a Christian, He is Christian name is Peter. He just decided to celebrate with Muslims who are celebrating their sallah. But going to the Eid ground with beads really appears a little bit more hypocritical. Well, it's personal. Only God sees the secret intentions of man. I wish him well.

  3. Please someone help me, is he the one on white head gear in the pix above?

  4. I think I know why.
    Just to win the Hausa Muslims for 2019 ambition
