As the controversy between Ayodele Fayose the governor of Ekiti state and President Muhammadu Buhari brews on. The embattled governor has revealed fresh details. Fayose recently opened up on his effort to have a word with President Buhari, who he has frequently criticized recently. According to Fayose he had phoned the Aso Villa three times, asking to speak to the president, but each time was diverted to the Buhari’s chief security officer.
In a private interview with select journalists, Fayose revealed the following: “About two – three times I called the villa they would divert my call to the CSO, saying I cannot talk to the president.
I should say whatever I want to say to him; a sitting governor? That is not Nigeria. So, at that point, I had to stay clear because they were on a vendetta mission.” The governor who is currently facing allegation of diverting public funds, also, said he wrote letters to the president.
