Fani-Kayode lied, never played any role in my defection to APC – Gov Umahi

The Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi, has rubbished the claim by former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, that he facilitated his defection to the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Umahi insisted that Fani-Kayode played no role in his defection from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to the APC.

Fani-Kayode had yesterday formally joined the APC at the State House where he was presented to President Muhammadu Buhari.

Speaking on his defection, the former minister claimed he played a role in Umahi, Governor Ben Ayade of Cross River State, and Bello Matawalle of Zamfara State’s defection to APC.

Reacting, Umahi charged Fani-Kayode to withdraw his claim.

Speaking on Channels Television’s Politics Today, Umahi maintained that Fani-Kayode was not aware of his defection to APC.

“I think he needs to withdraw that statement, he’s my good friend but, it was an insult on my person and the other governors

The man did not know when I moved, but incidentally he visited me and we discussed, and he said he was coming to join me with the other governors to declare.

“How will somebody in the PDP be instrumental to my moving?” he queried.

FLASHBACK: From Jonathan to Buhari: Fani-Kayode’s long history of going back to ‘vomit’

 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.

In 2013, FFK published an article entitled: The Bitter Truth About The Igbo. He justified the pogrom  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 Ports 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.

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 February, 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

Biafra: Obasanjo tells Buhari what to do with Nnamdi

Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo has said President Muhammadu Buhari must meet with the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, before the ongoing crisis gets out of handadded

Talking to Newsweek, Obasanjo, who as president met with Niger Delta militant leaders in 2006 to stop attacks on oil installations, said: “I don’t see anything wrong in that [Buhari meeting with Kanu]. I would not object to that; if anything, I would encourage it.

“I would want to meet Kanu myself and talk to people like him, people of his age, [and ask:] ‘What are your worries?’ Not only from the southeast but from all parts of Nigeria.”

He said the Army’s “heavy boot” response to pro-Biafra sentiment is “not the solution” and added that the secession craved by IPOB, is not the way forward either.

“We need to satisfy the youth in job creation, in wealth creation, in giving them a better, fulfilled life, in giving them hope for the future. There’s no easy way out,” Obasanjo added

Tinubu downs death rumours with return to Nigeria

Bola Tinubu, former Lagos Governor returned to Nigeria on Tuesday amid rumours about his death

Tinubu was conspicuously absent when President Muhammadu Buhari commissioned the Lagos-Ibadan standard gauge last Thursday.

The politician has travelled out of the country at least three times in the last one year.

They are expected to go on full blast from early 2022 once the Jagaban of Borgu declares his intention

Why I joined APC – Fani-Kayode

Why I joined APC – Fani-Kayode

Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, has disclosed why he joined the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Fani-Kayode explained that the APC he joined was different from the one he heavily criticized in the past.

The former minister had officially defected to the ruling party on Thursday.

His defection was disclosed at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, when he was presented to President Muhammadu Buhari by the acting National Chairman of APC.

However, the former minister explained that he joined a forward-thinking and accommodating party.

Speaking with Channels Television, Fani-Kayode, insisted that he joined APC to maintain national unity.

Asked if he joined for financial gain, he said: “I find that very insulting whether it is coming from you or my critics, I am not the first person that would decamp to the APC, have you asked others this same question?

“If you ask all politicians this question, you will get the same answer; nobody knows tomorrow. I have my values and I will continue to work towards that

 All Must Hail BIAFRA We Move With None Stop


Down on my luck, I am so filled with revulsion seeing people whom I had envisaged to had known the real inferences of entertaining daydreams that will never come to pass, wallow in total ignorance. Does it actually mean that common sense is no more common in this generation of ours? Why would some individuals pursue persistently and energetically in order to obtain results from something that is impossible to achieve even after seeing the clear signs of embarking on a fruitless journey? 

To be honest, I just can't bring myself to a position where I'd be compelled to believe all the party aspirants especially Charles Soludo, Andy Ubah, and Ifeanyi Uba, running in the forthcoming November 6th, 2021 Anambra State gubernatorial election, till now, are yet to convince themselves of the fact that with Mazi Nnamdi Kanu still illegally detained in the department of state services (DSS) black hole, election in Anambra is definitely going to experience a very low turnout voters, if at all, anyone would even step out to vote for them.

I mean, why would these aspirants having witnessed the enormous power which Mazi Nnamdi Kanu holds in the entire Eastern region, having witnessed how all the 5 states in the South-East shuts down at the command of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, they think that with Kanu still in illegal detention, Anambra Indigenes will consider going to polling units to thump print for them?

And to make matter worse, this same Mazi Nnamdi Kanu before his illegal abduction, torture and rendition, he gave the order election in Anambra will be heavily boycotted. Do these aspirants think that Biafrans have forgotten about the order even before the Head Of IPOB Directorate-Of-State, Mazi Chika Edoziem revalidated the Anambra election boycott?

No doubt, some have already began saying that boycotting Anambra gubernatorial election will give APC their needed opportunity to install their Fulani drone (candidate) in Anambra. Call it whatever you want because this is not the first time this kind of bogus claim is coming up. But the truth remains that until Mazi Nnamdi Kanu regains his freedom, not only the forthcoming Anambra gubernatorial election but other electioneering activities in the entire Eastern region will be massively boycotted. Nnamdi Kanu can't be illegally detained and you expect Biafrans to massively turn out to vote for you. You must be that man hoping to build castles in the air. 

 You think you know what's best for us? Voting for you to continue upholding that devil's book parading as the 1999 Constitution is not what's best for us because we have been voting for years but no positive results.

All of you aspiring to become the next Anambra State Governor should first of all, go and secure the unconditional release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and then we might consider if we are to vote for you or not. But until that is done, ELECTION IN ANAMBRA STATE WILL BE MASSIVELY BOYCOTTED!!!

Some of you aspirants don't even know that anyone who works positively towards securing the immediate release of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, Biafrans might hugely turn out to vote for such aspiring individual. But here you are campaigning for election when the man with the authority to shut down the entire states with total compliance is still held against his wish. Isn't that like chasing shadows? No problem, go ahead and let's see the outcome. November is
