Fayemi to Ekiti political appointees: Wear face mask or be sanctioned

By Sodiq Adewale Chocomilo

The Governor of Ekiti state, Kayode Fayemi has requested political appointees in the state to wear face masks in public to avoid being sanctioned.

This request was made by the governor in the wake of a possible second wave of COVID-19 pandemic.

In a circular addressed to all political appointees and signed by Biodun Oyebanji, secretary to the state government, appointed officials were accused of violating the COVID-19 regulations.

“Despite the common knowledge about the presence and resurgence of COVID-19 pandemic, it has been observed that government officials have largely become complacent about these realities through disregard for necessary preventive measures,” the circular read.

“This attitude, to say the least, is not only reckless but also shows nonchalance about one’s well being.

“Consequently, be informed that the governor of Ekiti state, His Excellency, Dr. Kayode Fayemi has warned that any public servant or political appointee who fails to wear a nose mask in public places would be sanctioned accordingly.”

As at Thursday, the state had recorded 388 COVID-19 cases of COVID-19.
