The Ekiti state governor refused to show up with his colleagues from other states to meet the president.
The president had met with all state governors in the country in the Council Chamber at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, but Governor Fayose did not show up.
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.
Gombe state governor, Ibrahim Dankwambo also snubbed the meeting with the president as he was also installed as the Akinmuagun of Ado-Ekiti alongside Fayose.
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).
