FAYOSE, AN EXTINCT POLITICAL DINOSAUR WITH REMNANT SURVIVING POLITICAL ASSOCIATES, THE FAKE NEWS SYNDICATE AND EXECUTIVE ORDER NO 002, 2018
This synopsis comes particularly timely cognizant of the signing of an Executive Order No 002, 2018 On the Establishment of Fact-Finding Committee for the Broadcasting Service of Ekiti State in a bid to reposition the Broadcasting Service of Ekiti State (BSES) as a vehicle for community involvement, education and entertainment by Ekiti State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi.
- Alligators & Crocodiles: These sizeable reptiles survived — even though other large reptiles did not.
- Birds: Birds are the only dinosaurs to survive the mass extinction event 65 million years ago.
- Frogs & Salamanders: These seemingly delicate amphibians survived the extinction that wiped out larger animals.
I have tried as objectively as humanly and politely possible to identify the direct political relatives of Fayose that need to be understudied as concerns their future politicking conduct and utterances regards 2019 General Elections, the harmonious well being of our State and the “Restoration agenda” going forward.
Alligators & crocodiles: Lere Olayinka and a few of Fayose’s unrepentant handpicked EKHA Members
Birds: A few uncouth Top Level civil servants.
Frogs & Salamanders: These classes of categorisation are mostly at the Local Government Service, Teaching Service and ward (grassroots) Level, a typical case note is the School Principal who despite an Executive Order abolishing any form of charges for pupils dared to attempt contravening the order.
The harrowing ordeal witnessed by the uninformed, but also the silent voices of the decent citizens of Ekiti must be safeguarded to never again experience the abysmal depths of fake news peddling by a State owned agency.
“The National Broadcasting Commission had on Tuesday 5th June lqueried the station’s Acting Director General, Mr. Lere Olayinka who is doubling as the spokesman for the PDP campaign organisation in breach of Section 5.2.18 of the Nigeria Broadcasting Code in letters to the Station and the State Government. Both letters were ignored by the recipients.
The Ekiti State Broadcasting Service on Wednesday 11thJuly, 2018 was found in breach of sections 5.2.7 and 5.2.8 of the Code for which it was reprimanded and fined N500,000 by the Commission.”
I sum the incident around the enforced closure of the “Broadcasting Services of Ekiti State” activities up to overzealousness and unprofessionalism on the side of the individuals at the core of the agency’s operations.

Not knowing how to decline a request, is how the wooden stirrer gets dipped into hot water.
[Learn to say, No; not all requests or offers are beneficial; some are traps in disguise.]
Cognizant of extant civil service rules guiding and protecting government employees, there was absolutely no need for the abysmally low performance as perpetuated on Ekiti citizenry sensibility if the core operators of the BSES hadn’t compromised the Industry’s standards and actually acted as accomplices at the commission of the documented offences.
Does this agency (BSES) have a legal Department/Officer? Food for thought for the Fact Finding Committee
