Fayose sacks Chief Press Secretary for poor media coverage of his Eid prayer

Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has sacked his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Idowu Adelusi for not arranging adequate media coverage of his attendance at the Eid prayer on Friday.
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 offense 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.

“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,” the source continued.
“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.”
