Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Fayode (FFK) blew hot on Tuesday in his reaction to Peter Obi’s endorsement by ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo.
In an article titled “What have they done to our baba”, the politician stated that “Something has clearly gone wrong”.
He mocked ”how Obasanjo spoke in glowing terms about Peter the Pooh and Dati the Daft amazes me”.
FFK accused Obi of persecuting non-Catholics, Muslims and non-indigenes in Anambra, including Northerners and Yorubas.
He alleged that as a Governor, the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate “invested state funds into his family business and had secret bank accounts in Panama”.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) chieftain said Obi and his running mate Yusuf Baba-Ahmed control an army of trolls on social media.
Their only mandate is to insult, denigrate, threaten, intimidate and attack anyone who disagrees with their principal. he noted.
“Like Peter, Adolf Hitler started in a similarly charming, humble and alluring manner, hiding his true colours long before he wormed his way into power.
“By the end of it all Germany, and indeed the entire world, paid a heavy price for their folly.”
Fani-Kayode said unlike Obi neither Bola Tinubu (APC) nor Atiku Abubakar (PDP) has been going to Mosques or Churches to “incite the passions of believers, preaching religious politics and hate”.
The former presidential aide warned that a vote for Obi will be one step closer to the break-up of Nigeria and a second civil war.
FFK lambasted the candidate for “refusing to condemn the brutal killing and killers in the South-East who kidnap and murder anyone and everyone.”
“I respect and love Baba OBJ, I always will and unlike others, I believe that his record in public office was extraordinary, unassailable and spectacular.
“However I think his rabid opposition to Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu particularly is misplaced, sad and unfortunate.
“I also believe it is rooted in something personal which is deeper, darker and more sinister than mere politics and this saddens me deeply”, he added.
