This was contained in a letter exclusively obtained by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday in Ado-Ekiti.

The letter, dated Nov.19, was signed by the Secretary to Ekiti Government (SSG), Mr Biodun Oyebanji, but was dispatched to Ayodele on Nov. 20.

“I wish to inform you of the directive of Gov. Kayode Fayemi that you should be relieved of your post as Chairman, Sports Council with immediate effect.

“You are to hand over government property in your custody to the General Manager, Sports Council, Chief Deji Samo, immediately,” the letter stated.

It, however, wished Ayodele best of luck in his future endeavours.

The development was further confirmed by Samo in a telephone interview with the NAN on Saturday.

NAN recalls that Ayodele was re-appointed as chairman of the sports council in June, having served in the same capacity towards the final lap of Fayemi’s first term in office.
