Smh! The governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose has said that he did not deliberately ignore President Muhammadu Buhari’s meeting with governors on Friday.

Fayose said he was unable to attend the meeting because it clashed with his chieftaincy installation.

The Chairman of the PDP’s Governors forum took to his Twitter handle to explain: “For those insinuating that I shunned the President’s meeting with governors, I didn’t. I had my installation as Apesin of Ado Ekiti slated for today.”

He added that “guests were already in Ekiti since Thursday for the chieftaincy title installation before I received notice of the meeting with the President.”

Buhari at the meeting said the governors have been “doing their best”.

The President, who had earlier met with the leaders of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, and the All Progressives Congress, APC, said, “I have just addressed members of APC and PDP senior officials that came to welcome me back.

“I thank you very much for the national approach to your leadership, those who are leaders at political level and those who are chief executives in their respective states”.

My rant, Fayose who has been one of the people speaking for Nigerians in the past months, now got the opportunity to sit and trash issues out with Buhari he left it to collect Chieftaincy tittle? Honestly am so disappointed, because I really looked forward to seeing him in that meeting and waited anxiously for the outcome.

Well, Uncle Fayose you fall Our hand sha, no problem.


  1. There’s nothing wrong in criticizing an incumbent government once such action is based on the premise of objectivity and civility. Governor Ayodele Fayose must learn to show respect to Elders particularly the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. After all the 16 years of PDP administration brought the nation to this mess which definitely can not be cleared in 2years of this present government. Fayose should prefer constructive alternatives should he has any and NOT casting aspersions on the personality of our President. Muhamadu BUHARI remains our President and Commander in Chief of our Armed Forces till the end of his tenure. Are there no people suffering in Ekiti State? Let Fayose go and fix the leaking roof of his home. Enough of Fayose’s hooliganism.
