Ayodele Fayose, the Ekiti state governor, was Sunday evening,
sighted by some Nigerians at the Johannesburg International airport
in South Africa while returning from a trip.
Fayose, who was reportedly accompanied by only one aide, was also said
to have joined passengers waiting to board the South African Airways 11
pm flight to Lagos.
According to the Nation, the radical governor exchanged pleasantries
with some of the Nigerian passengers as he eventually joined the plane
and sat in the economy section on the journey back to Lagos.
Many have raised curious observations about the visit, as it is not certain
if he was in the former apartheid region to see Nigeria’s president,
Muhammadu Buhari, who is in the country, attending the African Union
Recall that the Ekiti governor, who only survived impeachment plots by
lawmakers, recently pleaded with the president to allow him nominate a
worthy candidate to occupy a ministerial post.
