Ekiti State governor, Ayodele Fayose has come under severe attacks over his statement last Thursday that he won’t receive President Muhammadu Buhari, when he visits Ekiti State for the grand finale rally of the All Progressives Congress, APC, today
Many analysts in the state, who pleaded anonymity told LEADERSHIP that it was the height of political rascality for the Ekiti State governor to contemplate not receiving the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria when he visits the state tomorrow.
Fayose had said at the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, rally last Thursday, “I got a letter on Wednesday that that I should come and welcome the President, but I said I am not receiving the President because he has not done anything for Ekiti.”
Reacting to Fayose’s diatribe, a legal luminary, Barr Richard Akinnola ll, said, “Fayose is wrong, very wrong, to say that he won’t receive President Buhari when the President visits Ekiti State tomorrow to campaign for Dr. Kayode Fayemi.
“Protocol demands that you welcome the President, irrespective of your misgivings against the President, or whether you belong in the same party with him or not.
“The PDP hierarchy should call him to order.This is not a private matter. Otherwise, he should as well reject the state’s monthly federal allocation because it’s coming from Abuja.”
