Nigerians have reacted to viral pictures of a media aide to former Ekiti governor, Ayodele Fayose, excitedly posing for a photograph with the current governor of the state, Kayode Fayemi – a political rival to Fayose.
Lere Olayinka, who has been found in the past making derogatory against Fayemi, while supporting his principal, former governor Fayose, was seen posting for selfie with the governor at an event.
Recall that a panel had, shortly after Fayemi took over, summoned the former Special Assistant to then governor Fayose on Public Communication and New Media, Lere Olayinka, who also headed the State’s Broadcasting Service (BSES) between October 2014 and July 2018, to shed light on how the station was run in the period under review.
The corporation was shut by the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC) over alleged serial breach of broadcasting code.
Since then the relationship between the duo has been far from cordial.
Reacting to the emergence of the photographs, which have shocked many, a social commentator, Japhet Omojuwa suggested Lere buried differences eith the governor to take those pictures in order to secure a favour from him.
He simply dropped this message to the post “Man must wack”
Man must wack! https://t.co/aUlpdeSVdy
