Fayemi disclosed that the invitation for the meeting which was said to have been sent via Whatsapp by Asiwaju Bola Tinubu’s aide, Tunde Rahman, never got to him.

“Dr. Fayemi’s absence at the meeting was a result of a mix up in the invitation sent out for the meeting.

“The absence of an invitation for the Southwest APC leaders meeting prevented the Governor from attending the meeting, as he was not aware.

“Governor Fayemi however sent an apology to the meeting through former Ekiti State Governor and Minister of Industries, Trade and Investments, Otunba Niyi Adebayo; as he was already scheduled to attend another engagement at the time he came to learn of the meeting.

“Governor Fayemi, as a true democrat and Southwest leader who is committed to the welfare of the people, is however in total support of the decisions reached by the Southwest leaders at the meeting which include an endorsement of the positions earlier adopted by the Southern Governors’ Forum on the ban on open grazing and the need for true federalism, among others,” the statement added.
