His absence was confirmed by the president's Personal Assistant on New Media, Bashir Ahmad, on his Twitter handle (@BashirAhmaad).

He tweeted, "As reported by some media houses, Mr. Fayose didn't attend the governors' meeting with President Buhari earlier at the Presidential Villa."

 

While the other governors were meeting with President Buhari in Abuja, Governor Fayose was in Ado-Ekiti where he was installed as the Apesin (Apagun P'ote) of Ado-Ekiti by the Ewi of Ado Ekiti, Oba Rufus Adejugbe.

Governor Fayose has always been a staunch outspoken critic of President Buhari's administration with many public outbursts earning him backlash.

He has already started campaigning for the presidential ticket for the 2019 presidential election under the umbrella of the People's Democratic Party (PDP).
