Femi Fani-Kayode, a former Minister of Aviation has reacted to the attack launched by the presidency on the Northern Elders Forum (NEF) over alleged insecurity in the Northern area of the country.
Recall that NEF Chairman, Prof. Ango Abdullahi, in a statement the group released on Sunday said that the insecurity situation in some northern states was an indication that President Muhammadu Buhari has “failed woefully” to protect Nigeria which is a constitutional duty.
In reaction to the statement, the presidency released a counter statement signed by Femi Adesina, the President’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, which he described the position of the group but especially Prof. Abdullahi as “mere irritant and featherweight.”
Femi Fani-Kayode then went on to react to Adesina’s statement, he said Ango Abdullahi deserves to be attacked by the presidency.
According to him, No one in Nigeria had supported the barbaric savagery of the Fulani herdsmen more than Prof. Ango Abdullahi.
He added that Abdullahi is more of an “extreme hegemonist, religious bigot and ethnic supremacist that President Buhari”
Fani-Kayode on his Twitter page tweeted;
“No-one in Nigeria has supported the barbaric savagery of the Fulani herdsmen more than Prof. Ango Abdullahi. He is even more of an extreme hegemonist, religious bigot and ethnic supremacist than @MBuhari.
“He deserved what he got from Femi Adesina and the Presidency today.”
