Ekiti State governor, Ayodele Fayose, caused quite a stir after he was found eating a plate of Amala at the popular Iya Oyo restaurant in Wuye, Abuja.

A picture collage of Fayose  posted by a Facebook user, Lere Olayinka, on Tuesday, February 21, 2017, showed the governor as he digged into his meal.

Olayinka, who is the Special Adviser, Communications and New Media to the Ekiti State Government wrote:
“Just like you and I, Governor Fayose doing justice to AMALA with gbegiri, ewedu and ogufe (goat meat) at the popular Iya Oyo Amala Joint, Wuye, Abuja today.

“No retinue of security men, just the Governor and a few of his friends taking care of their stomach.
“Say what you like, na you know. Hisssssssssh.”

The comment is perceived as an attempt to make the governor appear simple and accessible to the people.
