Fayose also jets out to China, after criticizing Buhari’s trip there
Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose, has also travelled to China to attend the country’s 119th Import and Export Fair, also known as the Canton Fair, just after he blasted President Muhammadu Buhari for a trip to the same country.
Justifying the trip, the governor’s media aide, Lere Olayinka, said Fayose had before now travelled out of the country only twice since he assumed office in October 2014,saying his trip to China, which was planned six months ago, would be his third travel outside Nigeria.
Olayinka argued that Fayose’s trip to China was different from that of the President because Mr. Buhari’s trip was aimed at borrowing $2billion, while the governor would use his to secure partnership with prospective Chinese Investors and technical experts without committing the state to any loan.
The event, scheduled for April 14 and 19, will be staged in Guangzhou.
