The governor of the State of Ekiti, Kayode Fayemi, refuted claims that he had not seen President Muhammad Buhari when he visited the Presidential Villa of Aso.
In a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Yinka Oyebode, the governor accused a senior president's assistant of planting the news.Fayemi claimed that the aide, who was a former lawmaker, told close associates that he would fight him with "falseness and cheap blackmail."
The statement insisted that Fayemi had no plans to see Buhari on Tuesday, as he had met with Governor Abubakar Atiku Bagudu (Kebbi), Governor Simon Lalong (Plateau) and Governor Badaru Abubakar (Jigawa) earlier that day.The Chief of Staff of the President, Prof Ibrahim Gambari, and the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, were also present at that meeting.
"The governor of the state of Ekiti has never been denied any opportunity to see President Buhari, as he did not ask to see the president, nor did he go with Chief Giadom," the statement added.
