Ekiti Sports Council Chairman loses job

Ekiti government has terminated of Mr Isaac Ayodele as Chairman of state Sports Council with immediate effect.

This contained in a letter exclusively obtained by News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday in Ado-Ekiti.

The letter, dated Nov.19, signed by the Secretary to Ekiti Government (SSG), Mr Biodun Oyebanji, but dispatched to Ayodele on Nov. 20.

“I wish to inform you of the directive of Gov. Kayode Fayemi that you should be relieved of your post as Chairman, Sports Council with immediate effect.

“You are to hand over government in your custody to the General Manager, Sports Council, Deji Samo, immediately,” the letter stated.

It, however, wished Ayodele best of luck in his future endeavours.

The development confirmed by Samo in a telephone interview with the NAN on Saturday.

NAN recalls that Ayodele was re-appointed as chairman of the sports council in June, having served in the same capacity towards the final lap of Fayemi’s first term in office. (NAN)
