Kayode Eats His Vomits, Lets Flashback From Jonathan To Buhari

Kayode Eats His Vomits, Lets Flashback From Jonathan To Buhari

The defection of former minister of Aviation, Femi – Fani Kayode to the All Progressives Congress, APC, is setting tongues wagging on social media.

While the Nigerian political scene is littered with cross-carpeting by politicians, the decamping of FFK still struck many due to the past statements by the former Aviation Minister.

He has been dancing around decamping for a while now, back in February, Governor Yahaya Bello announced the decamping of FFK to the APC.

The possibility of defecting became more glaring when Fani-Kayode attended the wedding of Yusuf Buhari’s son. The attendance of FFK at the wedding generated reactions on social media, which he responded with missives, by calling those criticising him as people “foaming in the mouth.”

In this report, DAILY POST explores the years of FFK making statements and going back on them.

Clueless Goodluck Jonathan

In 2014, FFK published a series of write-up on his website, “A President Without Balls” and the two updated versions of the same essay titled ”The Gutless Eunuch and Spirit of the Jagaban” and ”The Gutless Eunuch and the Lion King,” respectively.

An excerpt from one of the essays read, “As long as such a weak and uninspiring man (Former President Jonathan) remains the Commander-in-Chief of the Nigerian Armed Forces please be ready for more casualties,” he stated about Jonathan.

“He must pull down every satanic alter that may have been erected in the Presidency and consecrate and re-dedicate the whole place to the Living God.”

While FFK was in APC, he was showering encomium on Bola Tinubu, while calling Jonathan all sorts of unprintable names, including “clueless.”

“A President who is as confused and as clueless as the comic character called Chancey Gardner in the celebrated 1970’s Peter Seller’s Hollywood blockbuster titled ”Being There”, he once said.

In 2015, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode was appointed the Director of Media and Publicity at Jonathan/Sambo Presidential Campaign Organisation, a position where he transmitted to praising Mr Jonathan.

In 2015, he stated that he “renounced those views about President Jonathan long ago.”

Upon his migration, he started calling APC a party with “Janjaweed ideology” adding that “The APC is a Boko Haramite party that is for Muslim extremists only and a handful of Christians who really don’t know what they have got themselves into.”

When Buhari was sick in 2018, FFK was at the forefront of the “Buhari is dead campaign.”

“Buhari is dead and he never came back from London. Only his body did. They invoked the spirit of Jubril and placed it in Buhari’s body. It is a common ritual among satanists.”

Religion also appears to be a tool that Mr FFK deploys with so much ease.

Bigotry statement on Igbo

Of recent, FFK has been a major supporter of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and its leader, Nnamdi Kanu.

When Kanu was incarcerated in 2017, FFK was one of the main people that visited him in prison and even called him his brother.

But most people had stated then that what most followers of Kanu may not know is that FFK has a long history of bigotry against people from the eastern part of the country.

ALSO READ:  Spray Naira Notes, Go To Jail - CBN

In 2013, FFK published an article entitled: The Bitter Truth About The Igbo. He justified the progrom in 1966 by blaming the Igbos for a number of crisis.

“It is that same attitude of ”we own everything”, ”we must have everything” and ”we must control everything” that the Igbo settlers manifested in the northern region in the late 50’s and early and mid-60’s that got them into so much trouble up there with the Hausa-Fulani and that eventually led to the terrible pogroms where almost one hundred thousand of them were killed in just a few days.”

The Igbos had lamented that FFK had no regard for even the memory of Odumegwu Ojukwu, the leader of the short-lived Biafra republic, when he claimed that he “had a long-standing and intimate relationship with Miss Bianca Onoh.”

Bigotry against Fulani

FFK’s favourite target practice is the Fulani, he even took it to a bizarre level by alleging that Fulani have sex with cow for sexual gratification and ritual.

“The Fulani is obsessed to conquer the South and take it from the ancestral owners like they did to the Hausas. The South owns the Pots and oil. It owns the best companies and rainforests. That is what they secretly want and not grazing land for cows,” he said in an op-ed.https://www.google.com/amp/s/dailypost.ng/2018/02/20/femi-fani-kayode-fulanisation-nigeria-perfidy-british-part-2/%3famp=1

Recall that when it suites FFK, he exploits his Fulani heritage which he is always keen to brandish.

“My grandfather, Sheik Nurudeen Sa’ I’d, who was half Fulani and half Yoruba, got married to my grandmother, Alhaja Abeke Sa’ id (nee Williams) who was a pure Yoruba woman.”

His disdain for Fulani did not stop him from taking a chieftaincy title from the Shinkafi Emirate.

Embracing Yahaya Bello he once cursed

During a spat with Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State, FFK did not mince words when speaking his mind.

“Gov. Yahaya Bello; when I wrote that this boy was a useful idiot and an accursed slave, some said I was being harsh.

“Truth is that he is worse than that. His mental faculties are non-functional,” he wrote on Twitter.

But as always, times have changed, and since their new friendship which started in Febuarary, FFK has been going out of his way to defend Mr Bello.

Last week, he even defended Bello on the accusation of diverting bailout funds to a private account.

Changing stance on Buhari

FFK once described President Buhari as weak, incompetent, sectional, bloodthirsty, genocidal and wicked.

Adding that “I would rather die than join APC or bow to Buhari.”

While this story is still developing, it is possible to start seeing some good remarks on Buhari from FFK based on his antecedent.

Meanwhile, Fani-Kayode had at several fora said that he does not play politics of do-or-die and does not also believe in politics of bitterness and exclusivity.

While reacting to the backlash that greeted his association with politicians at the wedding of Buhari’s son, Yusuf, FFK argued that there is no permanent enemy in politics.

CP Sylvester Alabi: An Example of A Police Officer Worth Emulating

By Haruna Mohammed Salisu

Many, who know me, knew I hate writing what could be referred to as “PR Articles” pampering public officeholders. It’s worse if it involves security agents, especially armed security personnel such as the Police and the army—in fact, I have never written one.

But I have written countless articles lampooning the police—mostly because their conduct, especially when it comes to relating with civilians isn’t always palatable.

For example, in my previous write-up about the Bauchi State Police, I have made reference to a December 12, 2019, report where a police officer in Ningi local government area reportedly shot one Sabo Idris who was said to be on his way to mining field at Burra district.

Mr Philip Maku was the Bauchi State Police Commissioner at the time. I remember my toxic encounter with him at a press conference where a heated debate ensued when I was pressing hard on accountability.

I have equally interjected in a widely publicized editorial written for WkkiTimes where a popular police officer, SP Baba Yola “consistently keep torturing and extorting citizens” where it was argued that he was enforcing the ban on Okada and covid-19 protocols. The article immediately spiked an urgent intervention from the Bauchi State governor Bala Mohammed, who called Baba Yola to order.

I can also recall making a reference on how an “angry mob attacked and sent packing, the Dambam Divisional Police officers for allegedly ‘robbing commuters.’”
Also, a report on how a township Divisional Police Officer allegedly tortured to death two people for “stealing chickens” is still fresh in our minds.

CP Sylvester Alabi: An Example of A Police Officer Worth Emulating

My major argument most of the time is that the Police aren’t always accountable. They maim and deny. They torture and deny. They extort and deny. They rob and deny. They kill and deny. That remains their modus-operandi in many cases and at all times. They are right in all they do and never shall anyone dare try to hold them to account.

But the case is absolutely different with CP Abiodun S. Alabi fdc, psc, mnim, the current number one Police Officer in Bauchi State. I strongly believe CP Alabi’s stride in Bauchi State has to be documented, at least for posterity—since most of the time our system doesn’t reward its best.

In a recent toxic encounter between the police and my good friend, Damina Yusuf (aka Nagari), who was seriously brutalized by some notorious officers while doing his legitimate job, CP Alabi demonstrated uncommon leadership and maturity. He did not only summoned the notorious police officers but had also ensured that they pay the price of their actions.

Many may recall that immediately after Nagari was beaten and got seriously injured by the police, the Nigeria Union of Journalists, Bauchi State Council pulled out its guns and started spatting a plume of fire—first by issuing a statement condemning the police, staging a boycott and planning what would have been a catastrophic protest and a vote of no confidence on the police in Bauchi.

The CP would have denied that his men were involved. He would have insisted that the police committed no wrong on that day. He would have denied everything and refuse to take blame or responsibility no matter the cost. He would have acted the same way others like him have done in the past—protect his men no matter how culpable they may be; guess what? Nothing would have happened I think.

But CP Alabi, the skilful police officer de-escalated the raging fire and the angry pen-pushers who were ready to ‘trigger-happy’ their pens in sustaining a bad PR for the police. He knew well that the pen is mightier than the sword. Being an honest and learned police officer, he took responsibility for what happened, apologised on behalf of the command, and ensured that the culprits faced the music accordingly—to serve as deterrence to others.

Not to hail and commend this honest and bold decision by CP Alabi is the greatest disservice one can do to one’s pen, because as the saying goes; “reason begets honesty, and honesty if given its head, begets confidence.”

Learning to take responsibility is a leadership gift God bestows on few leaders—and no doubt CP Alabi is one. He has healed the wounds by that singular action he took, and tactically de-escalated an enduring rift between the police and the Bauchi NUJ.

ALSO READ:  Spray Naira Notes, Go To Jail - CBN

As one nose-dive deeply into his strategy of fighting crime and criminality in Bauchi State, CP Alabi has actively deployed a community engagement strategy more than any Police Commissioner in recent memory. He’s constantly in touch with local communities, especially ones that are seen as flashpoints or hideouts for criminals.

We have seen instances where the CP intensified synergy with traditional rulers which resulted in the arrest of more criminals suspected to have committed various crimes. The recent influx of people from neighbouring Yobe State where remnants of Boko Haram still remain has seen n adoption of a community engagement strategy from the CP—this has contributed to des-escalating tension in those communities as I found out.

I don’t know how many years left in his police career, but what is certain is that the number one Police Officer in Bauchi has a lot to teach the law-enforcement agency—from being smart to taking responsibility and making amends where necessary and community engagement that is tag as one of the best strategies to fight crimes.

While we pray and hope for the best for CP Alabi, I think the police authorities should deliberately deploy some mechanisms to reward its best brains and punish bad elements in the system. This will embolden honest and open minds such as CP Alabi to want to do better.
