Fayemi not under pressure to replace deputy

March 24, 2013

The attention of the Governor of Ekiti State, Dr Kayode Fayemi, has been drawn to false and misleading news items being published by some newspapers regarding the health condition of  the State’s Deputy Governor, Mrs Funmi Olayinka as well as the misrepresentation of the meeting between the Governor and Mrs Olayinka’s elder brother, Chief  Olusegun Famuagun, the Sasere of Ado Ekiti.

While it is true that the Governor and Chief  Famuagun met, the Governor did not tell the respected High Chief that he was under pressure to replace his deputy; neither did he allege that some politicians had started lobbying to be considered for the position that is not vacant.

The widely reported falsehood is at best a figment of the imagination of the writers.

We urge journalists to continue to be guided by the ethics of the noble profession and stay clear of fictitious writing.


Olayinka Oyebode
