Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State on Friday March 27 sacked his Special Assistant on Digital Media, Mr. Muritala Olajide Adigun after he claimed Lagos Governor, Babajide Sanwo-olu’s coronavirus project as his (Makinde).
Adigun had passed off the disinfecting machines Governor Sanwo-Olu brought in for fumigation of public places in Lagos as an Oyo State Government project.
Adigun’s sack was made public in a letter signed by the Secretary to the State Government, Olubamiwo Adeosun. The letter reads;
“I wish to convey the approval of His Excellency, Governor Seyi Makinde, on the termination of your appointment as Special Assistant (Digital Media), with immediate effect”.
The sacked aide has however blamed members of APC (the opposition party in Oyo State) over his ordeal.
“APC agent of darkness that hacked my Facebook account to disseminate this false information about the Oyo State Government yesterday won’t escape the hand of the law.
“You called for it and you’ve gotten it… Thanks to everybody that contributed to my downfall.”
