Fayose visits Oni, says Ekiti comes first
Ekiti State governor, Ayodele Fayose, paid a surprise visit to former Governor Segun Oni at his Ifaki Ekiti country home, yesterday.
The visit, which took place around 2.30 p.m., had the Chief of Staff to the Governor, Dipo Anisulowo, on the entourage.
The governor, who arrived in a three-vehicle convoy, said he and Segun Oni had useful discussions.
He said: “Leadership comes first. Ekiti comes first, and leadership is about sacrifice, to make for the purpose of unity. That is exactly what I am doing. There is a difference between leadership and politics. To me, Ekiti comes first. Every leader, willing to make Ekiti first, I will visit him. I am the governor of the state and everybody is my subject. My visit to Segun Oni has nothing to do with politics. When it comes to how to move Ekiti forward, we must, first, remove our political garments.”
Oni, who warmly received Fayose, said: “It is a brotherly visit. I am happy for that. It is a welcome development and it is good for Ekiti State. We are both leaders of the state.”
