A former minister of Aviation, Femi Fani Kayode of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has reacted to a statement by the Wife of president Muhammadu Buhari, Aisha, that two powerful men have taken over Buhari’s government.
Aisha Buhari made headlines on Thursday, when she asked Nigerian men, to rise up and get their country back, from two powerful men that have hijacked power from her husband.
According to Mrs Buhari, while speaking at a national women leadership summit organised by a political group, known as Project 4+4 for Buhari & Osinbajo 2019, these two men(which she didn’t name) have taken over a government which came to being through the votes of 15.4 million people.
In her words;
“Our votes were 15.4 million in the last elections and after that only for us to be dominated by two people… this is totally unacceptable.”
“If 15.4 million people can bring in a government and only for the government to be dominated by two people or three people, where are the men of Nigeria? Where are the Nigerian men? What are you doing? Instead of them to come together and fight them, they keep visiting them one after the other licking their shoes (I’m sorry to used those words).”
In his reaction, Fani-Kayode said Nigerians deserve urgent answers, as to who is truly ruling us. The former Aviation minister made this known via his Twitter handle on Friday.
The First Lady’s claim that the FG has been highjacked by 2 men and that her husband’s supporters should find the guts to confront and wrestle back power from them is alarming.
Exactly who is running our nation? Almost 200 million of people and we don’t know who runs our country!
Some say it is a clone, others say it is a body double, others say it is a strange man that cannot even speak his own native Fulani language whilst the First Lady says it is two powerful and faceless men who have somehow usurped power and rendered the President impotent.
Whatever the case we deserve answers. It is time for President Buhari to conduct a national television broadcast and clear the air. Nigeria has become a laughing stock and the butt of cruel “clone” jokes all over the world over the last few days. It is unbearable and shameful.
