Activist, Usman Austin Okai has slammed former aviation minister, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, for praising Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi state.
This comes as Fani-Kayode took to his Twitter deal with to bathe praises on the Kogi State Governor, whom he met through the weekend.
Fani-Kayode, in his tweet, expressed optimism that amid the present disaster bedevilling the nation, “Nigerians will have every reason to smile again”.
The tweet reads, “I had a fruitful and productive meeting about the way forward for our country, crucial national issues, security matters, and politics with Governor Yahaya Bello before leaving for Abuja. Much will unfold in the politics of this country in the coming days, weeks, and months and Nigerians will have every reason to smile again.
“We shall surely prevail and God will guide, lead and protect our people and our country and grant us peace. I had a wonderful time in Kogi and I met wonderful people.
“Thanks be to God and my love and appreciation go to the Governor and his team for hosting my delegation of 15 and me so well.”
But in a press release on Wednesday, Okai suggested the previous minister to rise above his abdomen and pecuniary features by desisting from insulting the sensibility of Kogi indigenes with the unmerited praises showered on Bello.
The assertion reads: “I have observed with great dismay the complimentary remarks and comments showered on the infamous Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello, by a former minister, Chief Fani Kayode.
“Until recently, Chief Fani Kayode used to be a man I held in high esteem but, he is gradually tilting towards the path of infamy.
“I expected that being a man who has served at the highest level of government- the Federal Executive Council, Fani Kayode should be able to differentiate between good governance from clownishness but I was wrong.
“For some days now, FFK has been using every opportunity and platform that he has to insult the sensibility of Kogi indigenes and residents alike- who have been at the receiving end of Bello’s evil and maladministration by labelling a man who has been judged by the majority of people in the population of the state and Nigeria at large as a failure per excellence.
“The same Yahaya Bello who is infamously known as a disgrace to youths and governance is the man Chief Kayode coronated with the robe of champion of Nigerian youths.
“It is unfortunate that since 2015, FFK has fallen from the exalted office of Campaign Spokesman for President Goodluck Jonathan to the clownish state of instability and riff-raffism.
“His infamous instability has seen him turn into a champion of Biafra secession every time he’s with Nnamdi Kanu, a champion of Oduduwa Republic secession every time he is with Sunday Igboho; and on the similar time an advocate of 1 united Nigeria every time he’s with Yahaya Bello or any Nigerian Governor. Which mentally steady human being will probably be an advocate of secession and on the similar time an advocate of united Nigeria?
“While I am not against the decision of Chief Kayode to take advantage of the wastefulness of Governor Bello, he would have done himself good by quietly taking his share and hiding his head in shame instead of dancing naked in the market square.
“It will probably be within the curiosity of Chief Fani-Kayode to respect himself as a former minister and rise above the dictates of his abdomen. He cannot be a critic of the failed Buhari administration however and on the similar time reward Yahaya Bello – who in relative phrases is failure personified.
“Kogi state indigenes will not fold their arms and watch anyone insult their sensibility by making them look stupid simply because such a person craves to fulfil the ambition of his stomach.”
