The Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose has revealed why he won’t welcome President Muhammadu Buhari and his entourage to the state on June 10, as requested in a letter sent to him.
Fayose explained that the Buhari-led Federal Government never deemed it fit to construct a 100-meter road in the state since they assumed office in 2015.
The outgoing governor said this while speaking at the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, rally in Ado Ekiti, the state capital, yesterday.
According to Fayose, “I am not going to receive the president. If they think that they can use the police to intimidate us, it is a lie.
“This government is undemocratic, why did they close Akure Airport yesterday, when they knew that we would be receiving our party members.
“They have been arresting members of the PDP, but we will not be provoked. We will disgrace all of them on June 14.”
Fayose expressed hope that his incumbent deputy and governorship candidate of PDP, Prof. Kolapo Olusola Eleka, would be the governor-elect on July 14, adding that Buhari and his entourage would be disgraced in the state.
