The former Ekiti State Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology and newly appointed Nigerian Ambassador to Hungary, Dr. Mrs Eniola Olaitan Ajayi, has indicated interest in handpicking the wife of her former boss, Erelu Olabisi Fayemi, as her personal assistant on general duty.
The intention to appoint the former first lady was made known on Wednesday in Abuja where she was given a letter of credence as Nigerian Ambassador to Hungary with concurrent accreditation to Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The event, which was conducted by the Minister of State Foreign Affairs, H.E. Hon. Khadija Bukar Abba Ibrahim, also had several other top government functionaries in attendance.
It would be recalled that Amb. Ajayi served under the administration of the immediate past governor of Ekiti State and present Minister of Mines and Steel Development, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, as one of his reportedly controversial commissioners.
However, indication has emerged that the Ekiti Youths wing of the All Progressive Congress (APC), had kicked against the purported appointment which they tagged “rotational compensation appointment”, adding that such will further jeopardize the chances of the party in Ekiti 2018 guber poll.
