Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State has delved into the reason why Nigerian president Muhammadu Buhari was not invited to the inauguration ceremony of Donald Trump as president of the United States scheduled for Friday.

In a statement released by his Media aide Lere Olayinka, Fayose insisted:
"With Obama’s role in the emergence of President Buhari, it can be said that he (Obama) is a member of the APC in the diaspora.

"In an important event like this in US, our president will be missing in action. No doubt, something is fundamentally wrong because if there is hope of a future relationship between President Buhari and the new US President, they would have been celebrating his inauguration and would not have allowed Nigerians to hear any other news apart from Buhari going to America.

"Obviously, Buhari’s junketing to US that gulped $1m per trip, has come to an inglorious end.

"The Southern Kaduna killings is a clear case of genocide that must be thoroughly investigated and unraveled. To make matters worse was the bombing of the Internally Displaced Persons camp by the military in desperation to cover up the corruption and mismanagement of affairs in the camp.

"We appeal to Trump to ensure that the voice of the opposition is not silenced in this country. We however appreciate the non invitation of Buhari because that will give him the much needed opportunity to face the problems he inflicted on Nigeria, especially the IDP bombing, which left over 100 hapless Nigerians dead."
