Ekiti denies plans to close Adeyeye radio station
The Ekiti State Government has debunked claim by the campaign organisation of Dayo Adeyeye that Governor Ayodele Fayose plans to close down his radio station due to his interest in the governorship race.
Adeyeye was former Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)
The government said rather than peddle falsehood and incitement, Voice FM should comply with the State Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA’s) demand for Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) as permit letters dated September 26, 2016 and October 21, 2017.
The government said other corporate organisations were also involved in the SEPA’s demand for EIA in compliance with the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Decree 86 of 1992 (Now EIA Act 2004) and the SEPA Law 2009.
A statement by the Commissioner for Environment, Bisi Kolawole said, “The attention of the Ekiti State Ministry of Environment has been drawn to the unscrupulous claim by Voice FM 89.9, a private radio station in Ado-Ekiti that the Fayose was out to close down the station because of Adeyeye’s interest in the governorship ticket of the PDP.
“The claim is not only false, but baseless, irresponsible and a calculated attempt to whip up unnecessary sentiment against the state government to prevent it from carrying out its responsibility of protecting the lives of the people.”
