Fayose misses flight after refusing security screening

Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, on Monday at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, made a scene as aviation security tried to screen him.

Fayose, who was heading abroad, and was to be on board an Air France flight arrived the airport around 8.30pm accompanied by an aide, who carried his two luggage.

It would be recalled that over a year ago owing to the menace of Boko Haram, aviation authority introduced checkpoint at the entrance of the departure, and members of the public including workers in the airport are expected to undergo the screening.

But the Ekiti State governor on Monday thought he should not submit himself for frisking at the entrance of the departure.

The action of Gov. Fayose’s aide to submit his principal’s luggage for scanning incurred the governor’s wrath as he shouted at him furiously, a scene that got the attention of some people.

It was gathered that Gov. Fayose was late for his flight, and was rushing to check-in counter to obtain boarding pass. And despite not playing by the rules, he missed his flight.

“Usually all airline counters close at 7.55pm, and as at the time Gov. Fayose got to the check-in counter, the France Air’s counter had closed for the day, and so he missed his flight,” eyewitness told OrijoReporter.

It was however revealed on Tuesday in a statement issued by Gov. Fayose’s aide on New Media, Lere Olayinka, that the governor was on his way to China to hold talks with prospective investors in mechanised farming, experts in skill acquisition, particularly training in the area of perfect finishing in building construction as well as experts in auto-repairs modern technologies.
