Segun Fayose, the elder brother of Ayo Fayose, Ekiti State Governor has said Governor Ayo is a pure disgrace to their family and everything they stand for. Segun Fayose expressed his disappointment towards his younger brother during an interview with The Nation.
Segun also expressed his dissatisfaction on how Ayo Fayose handles his political ambition, and the statements he made against Buhari and former president, Obasanjo. During his interview with The Nation in Ibadan, Segun Fayose said;
It is a pity Nigerians are celebrating criminals. I am angry with Nigerians for electing somebody like Ayodele as governor. My children cannot come to Nigeria because of the terrible situation of our country.
I don’t have a relationship with any of our leaders because of their criminality and anybody who says I collected money from the opposition should step forward to challenge me. Ekiti and Nigeria are bigger than Fayose’s name and both names should be protected.
Segun Fayose claimed he warned his brother to refrain from his comments about Buhari but he did not pay him any attention.
I don’t want anything from anybody, but Ayo should stop insulting and abusing my father’s name. As a result of Fayose’s attitude, many people believe the Fayose family is rude but it is far from the truth. I have spoken to him many times, but he refused to listen. Buhari and Obasanjo are old enough to be his father and I don’t know why he should be insulting them.
He also stated he persuaded the people of ekiti not to vote his brother, Ayo Fayose as their Governor last year.
I am always sad with the situation of this country. Ayo’s arrogance is one of the reasons I said people should not vote for him prior to the Ekiti governorship election. If all I am saying is not true, my six children should die and I should end up in shame.
Most of us abroad are not happy with the situation of Nigeria. We are sad. When people call me from Ekiti to complain about Ayo, I tell them to forgive the family. People should not see Ayo as an ambassador of our family.
Ayo Fayose is known for his anti Buhari stance as he has never hid his negative feelings towards the APC Presidential candidate.
Recall that Governor Ayo Fayose expressed joy towards the exit of the former PDP National Leader, Olusegun Obasanjo. He described the exit as;
Congratulation on Obasanjo’s exit! Obasanjo, the troubler and tormentor of our party is gone. I congratulate our President, His Excellency Dr Goodluck Ebele Jonathan and the entire member of the Peoples Democratic Party on the exit of the mole in our party, Gen. Olusegun Obasanjo (rtd). Good riddance to bad rubbish. Our President, the coast is now clear for your victory.
