Members of the public have been urged to disregard publication on one of the national newspaper titled Fayemi’s failed mission to Villa with Giadom.
A statement signed by the Chief Press Secretary to Ekiti State Governor, Mr Yinka Oyebode says the story was fabricated by a senior aide of the Presidency, Senator, Babafemi Ojudu, and planted in the Newspaper, after it was rejected by some State House Correspondents.
The statement noted that the report was a misleading one designed to cast aspersion on the person of Governor Fayemi and create an impression that the NGF Chairman is an unwanted visitor at the villa.
Oyebode stated that Governor Fayemi had no plan nor reason to see Mr President on Tuesday late afternoon as presented in the report because the Governor, had earlier seen Mr President at noon in the company of three of his colleagues – Governor Abubakar Atiku Bagudu (Kebbi), Governor Simon Lalong (Plateau) and Governor Badaru Abubakar (Jigawa).
He however added that the Governor was never denied any opportunity to see President Buhari, neither did he go with Giadom to the state house.
