Governor Kayode Fayemi has hailed Femi Adeoye for not allowing his son, who just arrived from Lagos, to gain access to the house without confirming his Covid-19 status.
The Ekiti governor in a statement said the retired official of the Federal Road Safety Corps’ action epitomised the core Ekiti ethos of selflessness.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that the coronavirus pandemic has kept a lot of people on edge as they all try their possible best to adhere to government’s directive so as not to contract the virus and endanger others.
Despite that, some people have defied the lockdown order of the government by moving around freely despite not knowing their state of health.
An interesting video made the rounds on social media showing a man keeping away from his son and refusing him entry into their home after he came all the way from Lagos to Ekiti state.
Note that Lagos state has the highest number of coronavirus cases in the country and the father has every reason to be scared.
In the now viral video, the father was with his son at a government office where he said the boy should be kept for two weeks before entering his house.
The man said that there is no place for his son to self-isolate in his house and that the government should monitor him for two weeks. The obviously scared father was also seen rushing to his car and driving off so that his son will not follow him home.
Before his 'escape', the father said that despite the guy being his son, he cannot stand the risk of Covid-19 and that he had also given instructions for him not to travel but he disobeyed.
Legit.ng had also reported that Fayemi of Ekiti state announced the immediate slash of salaries of all political appointees in the state by 50 per cent as part of his administration’s commitment to ensuring the people's welfare is improved.
The governor in a statement signed on Tuesday, April 28, by Aare Muyiwa Olumilua, the commissioner for information and values orientation assured that salaries of civil servants will not be affected.
The 50 per cent pay cut will only affect Fayemi himself, his deputy, and all Ekiti state political appointees down the line.
