Remains of late actress, Moji Olaiya to be flown back to Nigeria with Tinubu's assistance

The remains of late actress, Moji Olaiya, will be flown back to Nigeria after APC Chieftain, Bola Tinubu, offered his assistance. This was revealed by Olukayode Salako, husband of actress, Foluke Daramola, who's the secretary of the committee in charge of Olaiya's burial.

Few days ago, multiple media houses reported that the Ekiti State government intervened and stopped the burial from taking place in Canada as planned, with the intention of bringing the body back to Nigeria.
The burial committee however issued a statement denying the reports, saying they were yet to get feedback from the state government concerning the burial. Olukayode Salako has now revealed that Ekiti Governor, Ayo Fayose, dismissed their request even though the Late Moji Olaiya was an indegene and Cultural Ambassador of the state.

Stating that they got assistance from Tinubu instead, Salako wrote;

WHEN SUCH A MAN OF CRUDE, DIRTY CHARACTER AND ORIENTATION IS IN CHARGE OF LEADERSHIP AND POWER 
Burial Committee: Your Excellency, Moji Olaiya is dead and as an ambassador of your state, we would appreciate your support to fly her corpse back to Nigeria for befitting burial.

Governor: Who is Moji?! I don't know any Moji. Please, stop disturbing my phone!

What an aberration! What an akwardness and crudity in leadership!  Meanwhile, Thank you Asiwaju Bola Hammed Tinubu for always proving it that you remain among the only few reasonable, reliable and benevolent fathers of the Yoruba nation ever since. Moji's remains are coming back home.

Thank you Jagaban! Thank you all well meaning Nigerians who have contributed in one way or the other.  Thank you sir! What a man with such a large heart!

I really like Tinubu. Kayode Salako, was not sure about you because of your ex wife and kids. Doesn't make what you did to her right but I have to say you are a good man to see this through.
Please at least take care of your children from your first wife. Treat your ex- wife and the kids to trips abroad. Not to get back with her oh... Just to show you are a true man. If you are happy with Foluke, that's all good. But do show concern for your ex wife s little of course with Foluke's blessing.
God bless you as you do so. Thank you

Why should the cost of the repatriation of a corpse from overseas be borne by any state government(s)? What provision obliges a state government to do so? Is this sort of service available to all the citizens of all states in the federation without exception? If you were so cooperative and refined (as against Fayose’s awkwardness and crudity), why didn’t you quietly bear the cost of the repatriation?

Transportation of bodies back to Nigeria in this manner is something which should be undertaken privately. A private citizen has offered to help and this is fine. This should be no reason to launch an attack on a public official who is not obliged to use public funds in the way you happen to prefer.

When I lost a very close relative some time ago, I buried her abroad with my own money without asking any Nigerian state government for money to return her to Nigeria, and I am from Ekiti state. Of course the relative was not an actor, singer or blogger I hear you argue.

No ! No argument. Just facts. Nobody knew your cousin. Moji was an ambassador unofficially for Ekiti, Yorubas, Nigeria and Africa ! She deserves State recognition as fit.

TK said...

Sometimes it's not what was said but how it was said. As a public officer, there should have been a diplomatic way to respond to their request instead of the crude and rude way he did. It was just a request.

Nobody will misquote you dear.... We'v been home since and he has done nothing but he get money to transport corpse... God will judge everyone according to his or her deeds. Him con dey buy good name

What Ekiti state has to do with LAUTECH?...... The University belongs to Oyo & Osun States..

It is irresponsible for anybody to expect the state government to be footing the bill for a private funeral. Cultural ambassador? So what. Fayose may be moved by pervasive poverty but it seems he knows where to draw the line

Ekiti Govt yet to receive any official request on Moji Olaiya’s burial – Fayose’s aide

Ekiti State Government has described as misleading online publications, claiming that the State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose promised fund the movement of the corpse of late Nollywood Actress, Moji Olaiya from Canada to Nigeria, saying; “No official request has been made to the government in respect of the burial.”

Special Assistant to the State Governor on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, who made this known in a statement issued in Ado Ekiti on Monday, described as irresponsible, the comment made by a certain Olukayode Salako, claiming that Governor Fayose declined request to assist with the flying of Moji Olaiya’s corpse to Nigeria.

He said; “it is totally irresponsible on the part of the said Olukayode Salako, who is said to be the husband of Actress Foluke Daramola to have taken to the online media to disparage the person of the governor when even family members and genuine friends of the deceased are mourning her and seeking means of according her a befitting burial.”

The governor’s spokesperson, who maintained that there was no official communication between the governor and Moji Olaiya’s family, disclosed that; “On Thursday, last week, I was contacted on phone by a journalist friend, Yomi Fabiyi on the need for the Ekiti State Government to assist in raising a sum of $15,000 needed to bring Moji Olaiya’s corpse to Nigeria.

“My immediate response was that an official request, via a letter should be made and that the letter will be presented to the governor. I gave him my email address to which I said the letter should be sent.

“On Friday, I informed the Chief of Staff to the governor, Chief Dipo Anisulowo of my telephone conversation with Yomi Fabiyi, and my response that official letter should be written to the governor.

“Up till today, the letter has not been sent and as such, no official request has been made to the State Government.

“When my attention was drawn to online publication that Governor Fayose had elected to fund the flying of the deceased corpse to Nigeria, I called the journalist who did the report and told him pointedly that no such decision was taken by the governor. It was on the strength of this that Mr Yomi Fabiyi issued a press statement on behalf of the Burial Committee, stating that no request had been made to the government of Ekiti State and the official letter requested was yet to be sent.

“It therefore beats our imagination that certain character like Olukayode Salako could take to the online media to make derogatory comments on the governor, purportedly on behalf of the family.

“While we condole with the Olaiya family of Ijesha Isu Ekiti, Moji Olaiya’s friends, fans and colleagues in the movie industry, we wish to advise that the family should saddle only responsible people with the task of according their daughter a befitting burial.”
