Ex-minister of aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode said it’s an insolent and childish assertion to describe Yorubas as traitors, Igbos as ritualist and Northerners as mass murderers.
Fani-Kayode said this in reaction to a comment trailing a statement made by former Ogun State Governor, Otunba Gbenga Daniel (OGD), that his followers wanted him to move to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
After the meeting held behind closed doors on Sunday with his supporters, Daniel, who was the Director-General of Atiku Abubakar’s Campaign Organization in the 2019 presidential elections had briefed the press that his followers told him that he can’t resign from politics yet and should lead them to the ruling party (APC).
Different reactions have trailed Daniel’s comment with so many calling the Yoruba ethnic race a ‘betraying one’.
Reacting to the comments, Fani-Kayode, who is from the Yoruba race described such as absurd. He said:
“To say the Yoruba are traitors because of OGD is absurd. At best it is uncharitable and at worse it is asinine. It is like saying the Igbo are ritualists because of Rochas or that the core northerners are mass murderers because of Shekau: it is an insolent and childish assertion.”
“A prominent PDP leader from the NC told me that southerners should not attack or criticise Buhari. He said only northerners should attack Buhari so as not to upset the north. No wonder Buhari trounced him in his state.He is a shameless coward, a useful idiot and an accursed slave.”
