Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi has asked former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode and the Special Assistant to Governor Ayodele Fayose, Lere Olayinka to apologise to him and pay N2 billion compensation for accusing him of owning the N13 billion found in a flat in Ikoyi, Lagos.
Rotimi Amaechi, in letters sent to Fani-Kayode and Olayinka by his lawyer, gave the men seven days ultimatum to apologise and pay compensation.
The minister denied owning any house in Lagos and having a girlfriend.
Lere Olayinka had alleged that Ebonylife TV Founder, Mosunmola Abudu is Amaechi’s girlfriend.
However, the Ekiti State Government has announced an increase in the maternity leave period for women in its public service from 12 to 16 weeks.
The Permanent Secretary in the State Ministry of Information, Youth and Sports Development, Kola Ajumobi, said the gesture was approved by the state Governor, Ayodele Fayose, as part of his display of love and special regard for the womenfolk in the state.
He said it was also aimed at encouraging exclusive breast feeding for newly born children in the first six months of birth.
