The older brother of Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose has said that the latter is an embarrassment to the family.

Segun Fayose also pleaded with his brother to stop bringing their father’s name into disrepute.

The older Fayose, who works as an accountant in the UK, reportedly made the statements while speaking to reporters from The Nation in Ibadan, Oyo State.

“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,” he said

“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,” he added.

Segun Fayose also said that he had urged the governor to desist from his shameful behavior but to no avail.

“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,” the governor’s brother said.

“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 added.

The older Fayose also said that he had urged people not to elect his brother into office.

“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,” he said.

“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,” he added.

Governor Fayose had earlier described All Progressives Congress (APC)  candidate, Muhammadu Buhari as “diaper-wearing” and also stated that Ex-President, Olusegun Obasanjo’s exit from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was good riddance to bad rubbish.
