Former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode (FFK), has taken a swipe on President Muhammadu Buhari’s led All Progessives Congress (APC) government, describing it as a miserable legacy.
In a statement issued yesterday by the former minister, a copy of which was made available to the Daily Sun, the former minster said the Boko Haram insurgency was back in full force.
He cited yesterday’s Boko Haram attack on Adamawa and other recent attacks to buttress his claims.
He condemned the reckless killing of innocent people all over the country by the Fulani herdsmen without any serious check on them by the Federal Government. Chief Fani-Kayode also alleged that security agencies were killing with impunity and committing mass murder.
He said the living condition of an average Nigerian in the last two years of President Buhari administration has been miserable and wondered what would happen to Nigerians in the next two years when the administration is expected to wind down.
He listed other indicators of a country in misery to include, “Economy in recession; Nigerians poorer than ever- suffering, hungry and badly divided; absentee ailing president, who has been away and not seen by or spoken to his people for approximately 90 days; calls for break up of the country from southern separatist groups; calls for mass murder and genocide of Igbo by northern youths if they don’t leave north by October 1; demonisation and persecution of opposition figures by the Federal Government; monumental fraud and corruption being perpetuated by Federal Government officials.”
Others are: “A National Assembly that is self-serving and weak; Judiciary that has been cowed and is terrified of the executive and a media that is a toothless bulldog, that has been intimidated and brought to its knees.”
He stated that Nigeria is now a laughing stock in international community, even as he condemned what he termed ‘many lies’ by the Minister of Information and the Presidency.
