…says mixup in invitation responsible for his absence
Ekiti State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi said he wholeheartedly supported the outcome of the All Progressives Congress’ Southwest leaders meeting that took place in Lagos on Sunday, May 23, despite his absence.
Fayemi said that his absence at the meeting was due to a mix up in the invitation sent out for the meeting.
He said that the absence of an invitation for the Southwest APC leaders meeting prevented him from attending the meeting, as he was not aware.
The governor in an apology for not attending the meeting, which he sent through a former Ekiti State Governor and Minister of Industries, Trade and Investments, Otunba Niyi Adebayo; said that he was already scheduled to attend another engagement at the time he came to learn of the meeting.
“For clarity, the invitation for the meeting which was said to have been sent via Whatsapp by Mr Tunde Rahman, an aide to Asiwaju Bola Tinubu never got to Governor Fayemi.
Governor Fayemi, as a true democrat and Southwest leader who is committed to the welfare of the people, is, however, in total support of the decisions reached by the Southwest leaders at the meeting which include an endorsement of the positions earlier adopted by the Southern Governors’ Forum on the ban on open grazing and the need for true federalism, among others.”
