The eldest brother of Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose’s family, Mr Olusegun, has explained why he campaigned against his election last year and why he would continue to distance himself and the family from him, saying he is not a good ambassador of the Fayoses.
Mr Olusegun Fayose said he was speaking out because he was angry that the governor and people of his ilk are getting to top offices in the country in spite of cases of corrupt practices against them.
Besides, he said he was angry because of the failure of the country to improve the standard of living of her citizens.
The United Kingdom-based accountant lamented that his six children cannot come to Nigeria because of poor social amenities.
According to him, the interest he has in seeing a better Nigeria would not let him overlook Governor Fayose’s behaviour.
Emphasizing that Nigeria is greater than the governor and even the entire Fayose family, he said he campaigned against the governor during the 2014 governorship election in Ekiti State because of the case of corrupt practices he was facing in court.
His words: “My interest is in this country because I am a Nigerian. I will like to see this country get better. So, I won’t support any effort to further destroy this country. I am annoyed because Nigeria is in shambles. My children can’t come home because they are always complaining about lack of electricity supply and other social amenities. That is why I am not happy.”
He reiterated that as the head of the family, he is not happy with the way the governor is disrespecting elders.
“We are true Ekiti children. We are cultured. We have respect for elders. If you bring your father to me now, what is expected of me is to prostrate or bend down in respect, not to insult him.” He said.
