Zenith Bank, Fayose and the man kneeling down

thenewsnigeria.com.ng (Sunday, June 26, 2016):  By Oyesile Odunayo Oluwasola

The man Kneeling down in this picture is Bunmi Falana, a.k.a Bumshaka. Bumshaka is one of Ayo Fayose’s boys together with Goke Olatunji [G.O.K] Fayose’s P.A in the past. Goke and Bunmi were together with Ayo Fayose during the 2003 governorship struggle against the then Governor Otunba Niyi Adebayo.

When Fayose emerged as the Executive Governor of the State, he appointed Goke as Personal Assistant, while Bunmi [Bumshaka] was said to inform Fayose that he preferred a career job.   More....

Immunity, impunity and Fayose’s angst

The Nation (Sunday, June 26, 2016):  “Whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad”. When Prometheus, Henry Longfellow’s character in the 1875 poem, “The Masque of Pandora”, uttered those timeless words, the author never anticipated a Mr. Fayose of Nigeria putting life into such immortal lines in 2016.

The apotheosis of Ayo Fayose

Punch (Sunday, June 26, 2016):  Nigerian politics is a study in melodrama. Our leaders focus on short-term solutions and we, the people, focus on short-term problems. One of such short-term problems is Mr. Ayo Fayose. Like Mr. Rotimi Amaechi under the Jonathan administration, Fayose has developed a reputation for turning up where there’s trouble brewing and hell waiting to be raised. Still, as a citizen, he has the civic right to insult, criticise or otherwise disapprove of the Federal Government and its policies.

It is a fact that Mr Fayose goes about utilising this civic right in a manner most will call disrespectful.   More....
