After he went viral on social media over his outfit to the Eid el Kabir prayers and how people looked at him with disgust,Gov. Ayodele Fayose has reportedly sacked his Chief Press Secretary,Idowu Adelusi.
Going by the words of the governor’s Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka,Mr Idowu was fired because of “dereliction of duty.
”Sources from the governor’s office claims Mr Idowu was sacked because he failed to organize an adequate media coverage for the Eid prayers which the governor was present at on Friday.
I quote Olayinka,“The governor was livid that there were no journalists in his entourage and that they were not on 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”.Mr Idowu however claims he was not aware of the event because he was not offically communicated with and there was no way he would arrange a media coverage for an event he did not know about.
