Ekiti State Governor sacks Chief Press Secretary over poor coverage of his Eid El-kabir Prayers

The Governor of Ekiti State who went viral on social media on sallah day over his outfit to the Eid prayers has sacked his Chief Press Secretary, Idowu Adelusi.

A statement by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka announced on the state-owned radio station said Adelusi was relieved of his duty over “dereliction of duty.”  

Another 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 is also quoted to have said, “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'.

The CPS, however, said he was not aware of the event because it was not officially communicated to him saying there was no way he could have arranged for a media coverage for an event he was not aware of.
