Ize-Iyamu sacks Director of Communication, Mayaki after showdown over ‘N500m campaign fund’

Aspirants of Edo People’s Movement(EPM) in Edo state, Pastor Ize Iyamu, has sacked his Director of Communication, Mr Mayaki after a furious row over ‘N500 million campaign fund’. It is the latest in a series of tense exchanges between them.

The money was reportedly given to Oshiomhole, Chairman of APC to deliver Ize-Iyamu, former Secretary to Edo State Government in the infamous Peoples Democratic party (PDP) Government.

Mr Mayaki was named the Director of Communication and Media along with 12 other appointees into Pastor Ize-Iyamu Campaign on April 2, 2020.

Crack team Naija reports that duo burst up with each other when Mr Mayaki stormed Ize-Iyamu’s residence, demanding to know why he should be excluded from the N500 million largesse on Tuesday night.

Pastor Ize-Iyamu has however pleaded with domestic Staff and other members of his Media to cap the scandal under the sheepskin to save his name from being dragged in the mud.

It was gathered that the Governorship aspirant described Mr Mayaki as an ant in the ointment, adding that “if he could betray Governor Godwin Obaseki who appointed him as his interim Chief Press Secretary (CPS)” and resorted to Blackmail, he (Ize-Iyamu) is not an exemption.

He lambasted and accused Mr Mayaki of being too money conscious and directed him to table issues that has to do with finance before Mr Abbas Braimoh who is his Director of Welfare Chief of Staff to Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, national Chairman of APC forthwith.

The aspirant was also reported to have said that Mayaki lost his trust since 2016 when he sponsored negative publicity he sponsored against him during Edo State Governorship election he lost to Governor Godwin Obaseki.

“Mr Mayaki complained bitterly when he came to Oga house yesterday”, but Oga rook him up and almost walk him out, a confidential source said.

“I do not have the kind of money Mr Mayaki is requesting for. A man who could betray the Governor who appointed him interim CPS. What else will he not do to anyone else”, Ize-Iyamu was reported to have told Mr Mayaki.

Crack team Naija learnt that leaders of Edo Peoples Movement (EPM) where Ize-Iyamu and Oshiomhole belong, are deeply worried about the development over the crisis of confidence and failed paradigm that require urgent replacement.
