Why Gov. Fayose Failed To Attend Governors Meeting With President Buhari


by Tunde Ogunmola

Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose was conspicuously missing, among the Governors who met with President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday at Aso Rock Villa in Abuja. His absence in the meeting has elicited a chain reaction and several  insinuations in many quarters. But the Governor has come out this morning to put the record straight by disclosing reason why he missed President Muhammadu Buhari’s meeting with the Governors.

The governor in a series of tweets said: “For those insinuating that I shunned the President’s meeting with govs,I didn’t. I had my installation as Apesin of Ado Ekiti slated for today. Guests were already in Ekiti since yesterday for the chieftaincy title installation before I received notice of the meeting with the President. There was no how I could have abandoned the people here in Ado Ekiti for the impromptu meeting with the President.

“Also, there is Udiroko, a major festival in Ado Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital tomorrow to which I am committed.”
