Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state has revealed explanation why he determined to not attend President Muhamamadu Buhari's council of states assembly every time its being known as upon.
Fayose, in an interview with Vanguard over the weekend stated: "Each time they name assembly, my deputy goes there. You remember I used to be in Abuja, and that i mentioned expressly there that they have been calling it financial summit; they introduced all of us there, however once i noticed the checklist of the individuals that can lecture us; I couldn’t permit a sick man to be treating me – individuals I knew ran the economic system of their states aground had been to be the lecturers within the summit".
"And once you see the figures they brandished for preparations and feeding working into over N250m; that's not financial summit. That's financial stealing. So, I ship my deputy regularly".
"I wrote three letters to the president, none of them was replied. Initially, when he grew to become president, I didn’t begin like this. About two – 3 times I known as the villa they'd divert my name to the CSO, saying I can not discuss to the president. I ought to say no matter I wish to say to him; a sitting governor? That isn't Nigeria
. So, at that time, I needed to steer clear as a result of they have been on a vendetta mission".
The governor explains additional that: "The incontrovertible fact that I criticise you; I don’t need to be in your occasion! The APC, day by day they arrive right here to do rallies, they are saying that Fayose ought to resign, they are saying Fayose is fraudulent, did you see me slapping anyone? I'll simply have a look at you. There's freedom of expression. Even within the face of intimidation and even within the face of misbehaving, as a frontrunner, it is best to accommodate all. Let me offer you one occasion, which the APC can by no means do to anyone. All through the tenure Fayemi was right here, I by no means used a phrase that's unclean on him.
