Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi, has appointed as coronavirus ambassador, Femi Adeoye, the man who publicly reprimanded his son who travelled to Lagos despite his warning not to embark on the trip.
The video of Mr Adeoye refusing to cover up for his son over fear of contracting and spreading COVID-19 in Ekiti State went viral after it was shot days ago.
Adeoye said in the video that he would not take the young man home because his house had no space where his son could isolate himself.
He urged the authorities to take charge and keep his son under close observation.
However, Mr Fayemi met Adeoye on Thursday and commended him for the action as the state battles to contain the ravaging disease.
A Twitter thread by the government read: “Governor Kayode Fayemi @kfayemi has appointed Mr. Adeoye as a COVID-19 Response Ambassador in Ekiti State. He will help to propagate the message as a member of the COVID-19 Task Force @Ekiti_COVID19 in the State.
“By, in accordance with existing regulations, denying his son entry into his household having travelled from places under Federal lockdown against his fatherly advice, Mr. Adeoye has proved to be a worthy ambassador of Ekiti State resolve to end the #COVID19 pandemic.
