Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has appointed Segun Fafore as his Executive Assistant on New Media and Public Relations.
Mr Fafore was the consultant-in-chief at Reputation Plus Limited before his appointment by Mr. Sanwo-Olu.
It is believed that Fafore was part of the team that developed the winning strategy for the Sanwo-Olu/Hamzat BOSKOH Campaign Organisation for the March 9 governorship election in Lagos.
Fafore has held senior communication roles in corporate organisations across the banking and oil and gas sectors of the economy.
Fafore’s career in the corporate communications and brand/reputation management business began shortly after he graduated with a B. A. (Hons), degree in English, from Obafemi Awolowo University in 1999 when he joined Access Bank where he rose to become the head of corporate communication of the bank with outstanding achievements in managing the image of Access Bank.
Just before setting up his company, Fafore was in charge of external communications and stakeholders’ engagement initiatives at Nestoil, a leading Nigerian oil service company operating in the up stream and mid stream, engineering, procurement and construction.
There, he developed and supervised the execution of strategic plans in the corporate communications department.
He also guided corporate communication team members towards successful execution of integrated communications and corporate social responsibility agenda.
Fafore’s romance with education did not stop at OAU. He attended the University of Leeds (2014 to 2015) where he bagged Masters of Arts (M.A) in the field of Corporate Communications and Public Relations.
He also attended Rutgers Business School (2015) for a ‘Mini MBA’ in the Field of Social Media Marketing. He also has a diploma in Public Relations and graduated with distinction from 2010 to 2011 (Chartered Institute of Public Relations).
