Ayo Fayose Ekiti Gov. enjoys his roadside 'Iresi'

Ekiti State Governor Ayo Fayose has once again shown that he is a man close to the masses as he enjoys a local food by a roadside buka.

  • Published:

Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose is one man who does not give out airs when it comes to interacting and identifying with the grassroots people.

In fact,  if an award is to be given to Nigerian governors who goes as far as mixing with the masses, Fayose will take such without batting an eye.

In the latest of such show, the Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governors' Forum, was seen stopping his convoy to buy a local delicacy called Iresi Inu Ewe (local rice cooked and served inside leaves) from a roadside food seller at Moferere area of Ado-Ekiti, the state capital.

By the time the Governor left, the food seller got a token of N20,000 for the food worth only N100.

As usual, his Senior Special Assistant on Public Communications & New Media, Lere Olayinka took to the social media put up the photos of the Governor enjoying his meal while his aides look on with great delight and, some will say, a longing to have a taste of the food.

Read what Olayinka wrote on Facebook and Twitter:

"Something for our APC friends to get busy with...

He ate N100 rice and by the time he was leaving, the food seller got N20,000 for service rendered.

Make una BMC members take the pictures to Utako, Abuja, for una usual analysis. At least, you now have something to keep you busy."
