“I only Wanted To Trend”- Gov Fayose Apologies To Buhari

Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State has made a formal apology to General Buhari for predicting his purported death in office in his infamous Newspaper advert of January 19 which made the front page of almost all the national dailies in the country.

The reaction of the intellectual bulk of the Nigerian society to the damaging was so swift, that many termed it a premeditated attack on the entire peoples of the North West Region, and also an insult on the memories of the Past heads of state whom he (Fayose) represented to have died in office.

Many Nigerians were particularly angry at the way the image of Gen. Murtala Mohammed and Umaru Musa Yar’Adua were juxtaposed alongside that of General Sanni Abacha.

Following the wake of rejection which trailed the release of the advert and its’ attendant consequences, Governor Fayose was forced to make a public apology via his Twitter handle, where he apologised to Buhari and the NorthWest, confessing that he only wanted to trend on behalf of GEJ (See tweet below).
