Governor of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi has offered an appointment to a Nigerian dad who denied his son entry into his home for sneaking into the State from Lagos despite interstate travel ban.
Mr Femi Adeoye, a resident of Ekiti and a retired FRSC official was seen in a viral video saying he will not allow his son who just returned from Lagos state to enter his house due to fear of Coronavirus.
The man states that his son must present himself to the state government officials so he can be isolated for a period of 14 days.
Impresed by Mr Adeoye’s disciplinary act, Governor Kayode Fayemi, on Thursday afternoon invited him to his office where he applauded him and offered him an appointment as COVID-19 Response Ambassador in Ekiti State.

He’s the principled man that outed his son for flouting the lockdown rule and sneaking into Ekiti from Lagos.
His good deed paid off.
