Ekiti State Governor Ayo Fayose has sacked Idowu Adelusi his Chief Press Secretary on the ground that he fail to provide adequate media coverage when Fayose attended Eid prayers on Friday.
His Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka said Adelusi was sacked over “dereliction of duty.”
The statement, which was announced on the state-owned radio station, did not explain the specific offence committed by Adelusi.
Punch report that “The governor was angry 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.
