Ministerial Screening: Today’s Senate is “a crass display of comic relief” – FFK

Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has described the Nigerian Senate as nothing but a joke.

The former minister shared this after watching the Ministerial Screening of the 9th Assembly.

Fani-Kayode compared the screening in 2006 to the present-day 2019 screening led by SP Ahmad Lawan, is more of a show and nothing near screening.

He furthered stating how he was screened for “no less than two hours and thirty gruelling and very difficult minutes”.

He tweeted:

“When I was nominated to be a Minister by OBJ 13 years ago in 2006 I was screened by the Senate for no less than two hours and thirty gruelling and very difficult minutes on live television. There is no question that they did not ask me and there is none that I did not answer.”

FFK added that the Senate of the past had “great and powerful intellectuals” men, and today’s Senate is full of comic actors.

In today’s Ministerial Screening, all you do is “Smile, show your teeth, bow and go”.

“In those days days the Senate had great men and powerful intellectuals in its ranks.What we see today in the name of Ministerial screening is a pitiful joke. “Smile,show your teeth,bow and go” is NOT screening: it is a crass display of comic relief which is far below the Senate,” FFK shared.

Our greatest enemies are not northerners, Fulani but southerners – Femi Fani-Kayode

Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, said the south “greatest” enemies are not the northerners or the Fulani masters, but southerners themselves.

Fani-Kayode addresses liberation as when a tribe like another tribe.

The Yoruba should like the Igbos and vice versa, also both tribe should like southern minorities and vice versa.

FFK derived that unity is a fundamental pre-requisite to emancipation. Without unity, there will be no emancipation.

He said a southern who hates his/her fellow southern for any reason is the greatest enemy of the south.

The former minister shared this via his Twitter page.

FFK said:

“The greatest obstacles to the liberation of the south from northern hegemony and bondage are:
1) The Yoruba that hates Igbos.
2) The Igbo that hates Yorubas.
3) The southern minorities that hate Igbos and Yorubas.
4) The Igbos and Yorubas that hate southern minorities.

“Southern UNITY is a fundamental pre-requisite to southern EMANCIPATION. Without the former, you cannot achieve the latter.

“Our greatest enemies are not the northerners or their Fulani masters but the southern fool that is filled with hate and malice for his fellow southerner.”

“Tinubu has sold his soul to the devil” – Femi Fani-Kayode

Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has shared his thoughts on the former Governor of Lagos state, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu’s speech at Pa Reuben Fasoranti’s home.

The former minister said “Tinubu has sold his soul to the devil and his conscience to the north” following an unexpected content of Tinubu’s speech.

FFK went to his Twitter page to share his thoughts with his followers.

Read Femi Fani-Kayode’s full statement below…

“I listened to Tinubu’s slurred speech and utter nonsense at Pa Fasoranti’s home. He was inconsiderate and insensitive. He was not there to mourn or commiserate with Pa, he was there to mock him, to pour salt in his wounds, to play politics and to speak for his Fulani masters.

“What have the kidnapper Evans or the Igbo got to do with the targetting and assasination of Olakunrin?And why the obscene determination and desperate hurry to absolve the Fulani of this hideous crime?He may not believe that they did it but why would he rule it out completly?

“Does he know something that we do not know? Is he an expert when it comes to assasination, homicide and murder matters? Does he know who the killers are? Why the rush to tell us who it wasn’t? Can’t he at least wait for the police to conclude their so-called investigation?

“Even for a confirmed quisling and desperate serf this time Tinubu has gone too far. Funke has not even been buried yet and he is already pissing all over her bullet-riddled body. Tinubu has sold his soul to the devil and his conscience to the north.

“He has become a slave to his ambition and a plague to his people. He is a shameless soul and wicked old man who is ready to sacrifice anyone and anything to become President.

“I make this pronouncement today: as long as Jesus sits on the throne he will fail woefully.”

“Fulani herdsmen are symbol of bloodshed, terror and evil” – Femi Fani-Kayode

Following the recent changes in the new Nigerian passport, Femi Fani-Kayode, has referred to the Fulani herdsmen as symbol of terror and evil.

He shared his view on his Twitter page earlier this morning.

See full statement below…

“Fulani herdsmen are symbols of bloodshed,terror,mass murder, ethnic-cleansing,genocide,carnage, torment,trauma and evil. They represent nothing but cruelty,suffering, land-grabbing,church-burning,raping and pillaging and are instruments of occupation,domination and conquest.

“They have slaughtered more Nigerians over the last 4 years than BokoHaram have done in 10 and they have been designated as the 4th most deadly terrorist org. in the world by the int. community.We must consider all this in the light of the composition of our new passport.

“To dedicate a page of our passport to them and paste their picture on it represents the biggest and most gratutious insult to the Nig.people that has ever been served. It’s like dedicating a page of the Israeli passport to Hitler and the Nazis that slaughtered 6 million Jews.

“It is like dedicating a page of the Southern Sudanese passport to the Janjaweed Arab Muslims of Darfur that slaughtered hundreds of thousands of black African Christians in the Sudan.

“It is like dedicating a page of the Congolese passport to King Leopold 11 of Belgium and his people after they butchered 10 million Congolese. It is like dedicating a page of the Rwandan passport to the Hutu Interahamwe after they wiped out 1 million Rwandan Tutsis.

“It is like dedicating a page of the American passport to the rebel Confederate forces of the Amerian civil war and to the Ku Klux Klan who slaughtered miliions of black Americans over the years and who insisted on the perpetuation of the institution of slavery.

“It is like dedicating a page of the South African passport to the white Boers and Afrikaans-speaking Dutch settlers who founded and established the apartheid state,who butchered milions of Africans over400 years and who believed that the blackman was no better than an ape.

“Such a gesture is heartless, unforgivable and unbecoming. It is insensitive. It is callous. It is wicked. It is uncharitable. It is unkind and it is evil.
The worship and veneration of cows and cowloving is alien to the Nig. culture and it is regarded as an abomination.

“We are a nation of believers that worship God and not one that worship cows. Those amongst us that regard cows as wives and that value the life of a cow more than the life of a human being are not Nigerians but aliens that come from a distant land outside our shores.

“To paste such people and their accursed cows on our international passport and compel Nigerians to carry them all over the world with us aspart of our national identity,heritage and culture is unaccpetable and too much to ask. It is a gross misrepresentation of who we are.

“We reject it in its entirety and we insist that the Buhari administration removes that accursed page forthwith and replace it with another symbol that truly represents the noble, enlightened, civilised and laudable nature and heritage of the Nigerian people.

“We refuse to accept a symbol that represents a retrograde, barbaric, blood-lusting, vampiric, malignant, malevolent and bestial foreign heritage and culture on our passport.”
