In his remarks, Ajayi described Fayose as a clear minded personality, who speaks regardless of whose ox is gored.

I have come to Afao Ekiti at this hour of the day to wish a friend, brother and leader a happy birthday at 60. Fayose is one person I have great respect for.

“I will continue to relate with him because he is not someone who will not tell you A when he means B. His yes is yes and when he says no, he means no,” Ajayi said.

The Deputy Governor dumped the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the PDP following his disagreement with Governor Rotimi Akeredolu and later dumped PDP for ZLP where he picked the ticket and contested the election.
