Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State, who is currently in China, has been the subject of ridicule since photos of him supposedly addressing the Chinese business community were released online by his loyalists.
According to report, he gave a speech at the Multinationals Sourcing Service Centre, PAzhou Trade Complex, Guangzhou, China, canvassing for the support and empowerment of Nigeria.
Fayose had on Tuesday, April 12, written a letter to the Chinese government not to borrow Nigeria $2 billion in loan, for which purpose President Muhammadu Buhari is in the Asian country – the All Progressives Congress (APC) described the move as an act of sabotage.

However, Nigerians believe Fayose’s supposed speech was just a propaganda, with some people familiar with the venue of the ‘speech’ saying it is a tourist centre, where people take pictures posing with the podium.
A popular social media influencer, Japheth Omojuwa, described the Governor as “Nigeria’s biggest joker”.
