In the face of public furore generated by the public exposure of celebrated presenter, Frank Edoho kissing his new lover, Sandra at wedding recently- his employment remains unthreatened.
His employers- the promoters of the must watched programme Who Wants To Be A Millionaire- remain consistent in their stance on issues relating to Edoho’s matrimony- it is a private matter.
This is even in the face of campaign by some within the organisation attempting to leverage on the development to replace the popular presenter with ‘another favoured candidate’
His job is one of the most coveted within the organisation (because of the inherent gains)
The ‘sack Edoho’ group within and outside the organisation hinge their moves on claims of ‘irresponsibility’ on the part of the presenter.
They premise this on interpretation that he was caught kissing his new lover at a public place, when he is yet to fully divorce his wife.
The allegation is that as a brand ambassador of the programme- his action portrays it in bad light.
Pro Edoho’s faction had countered these claims with the revelations that ‘the issue of irresponsibility doesnot come into play’
That he is still very much responsible for the upkeep of his wife and his three children.
He is said to just pay her house rents and increase their monthly allowance.
They were on two hundred and fifty thousand naira monthly allowance- the increment is yet to be ascertained.
Aside this- Edoho is said to just make provisions that will take the stress of taking the children to and from school off kathrine.
According to his supporters ‘he is trying to make them comfortable and happy like he is trying to be on his new romance’
They stretched the argument further that ‘it takes a responsible man to do that- that those attempting to create an issue out of a kiss with a fiance, his parents approved are just being mischievous’
Sources claim the decider that strengthened his employers resolve to be consistent in their stand on the issue is Edoho’s competence.
It is generally agreed that- he knows his job.
Insiders revealed that though the move to get him sacked is yet to be totally eradicated- there are strong indication that because of the need not to contradict official position against the background of caring for his estranged wife and children, Edoho will escape with only ‘a strong warning- until he commits professional blunder’
