(Exclusive)72 hours to inauguration, Fayose bars siblings from ceremony!


Barely 72 hours to his inauguration, the Governor-elect of Ekiti State, Peter Ayodele Fayose has ordered his security to stop any of his siblings from attending the ceremony. A source hinted that the Governor-elect secretly passed this to the head of his security who hinted all other security personnels through a memo sent around this morning.Fayose was claimed to have done this to widen the gap between him and his family members who he had been at war with for sometime.

It was revealed that the Governor-elect who was alleged to have slapped and beaten a Judge some weeks ago has put down the names of those who have wronged him in the past that he wants to distant himself from, thus adding his siblings to the long list of his common enemies.

It was also gathered that he had wanted to strike out his mother’s name from the guest-list but he was prevailed upon by some close friends who considered the interpretation his actions could bring.

The inauguration ball which sources claimed had cost the Governor’s friends about 100 million naira to plan will have the King of beats, Sunny Ade thrilling the dignitaries that will grace the occasion.

The trouble with the Governor and his siblings dated back some years ago when he was serving his first term and had a rough time fighting with his siblings on allegations that bordered on neglect, wife snatching and high handedness.
Fayose was said to have thought that the fight he had with his siblings put him in a dark spot that later marred his political career and denied him a second term when he was impeached by the State’s lawmakers for financial malpractices and project inflation.

He was said to have reasoned that all he need in his new administration is to steer clear of his family and focus on his government.

The biggest of the sins he counted against his siblings was learnt to be the death of his sister, Bimpe Shorinolu which he was said to be allegedly culpable for her death because he refused to come to her aid in time.
It was alleged that the politician did not pick Bimpe’s call or respond to her text messages throughout her stay in the hospital before they were reconciled and she later succumbed to cancer.

Fayose was said to have taken the allegation seriously and had been evading her siblings since then.
His siblings were said to have attempted to reach him after the election when they hosted a Victory party for him in Lagos and London, an event he was conspicously absent from and which spread the tale of a discord between them.
His siblings were said not to be the only people the Governor is fighting, his black list includes his former Personal Assistant, Goke Olatunji, his former Deputy, Abiodun Olujinmi, his best friend, Gbenga James and others who he labelled amongst those that worked against him during his travails with the EFCC in a 900 million naira poultry project sham.
Paper Mache spoke with one of Governor Fayose’s brothers, Isaac on the phone and he is quoted as saying ‘oh! Its always funny when I hear this, there’s no fight between us. He is my egbon, my blood brother, why would the family be fighting him?’.
When asked if he would be attending the inauguration ceremony Isaac replied ‘I am in Dubai presently for an award event for my tv station, Alibi and its likely I come for the swearing-in if I arrive Nigeria before Thursday’.
