Eldest brother to Ekiti State governor, Oluwasegun Fayose, has condemned the instruction given to farmers in the State by the governor to attack herdsmen.
He said the directive did not show that the governor was a true leader.
Oluwasegun, was speaking in an interview with The Nation in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, where he said his brother was embarrassing the family by some of his actions and utterances.
He said, “leaders are not supposed to make comments that are capable of inciting the public or bringing their family’s name into disrepute.
“I totally disagree with him. I do not like what he is doing. He is dragging the family name in the mud. I read in national dailies that Ayo Fayose was inciting Ekiti people against herdsmen.
“I have never seen where a leader talks like this before. I spent most of my life in Europe. I left Nigeria in 1976. My children are still there. I want them to be able to come home. I do not want to be harassed. Let it be on record that I do not support this kind of aggressive method of governance. He is too vulgar for my liking.”
Rather than making utterances that do not portray him and the Fayose family as noble, Oluwasegun advised the governor to keep quiet.
