Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, has said that Nigeria is not a nation but “an occupied territory of slaves, vassals and quislings.”
He said most of the citizens behave cowardly and are not prepared to confront the “monstrous beast that has held them captive and in bondage for the last four years.”
Fani-Kayode, who was apparently criticising President Muhammadu Buhari’s government, regretted that supporters of the President see and worship him as a god.
According to him, many of these supporters are so gullible to the extent they will not hesitate to “literally eat” his excretion if asked to do so.
He wrote on his official Twitter handle:
“If @MBuhari asked his supporters to put their faces under his smelly old arse and literally eat his shit, 99 per cent of them would gladly do so. That is how badly he has damaged their psyche and destroyed their self-esteem. To them Buhari is worthy of worship and is greater than god.
“Nigeria is not a nation: she is an occupied territory of slaves, vassals and quislings that are not prepared to confront the monstrous beast that has held them captive and in bondage for the last four years. Most Nigerians are so cowardly that they dare not even speak truth to power.”
In another tweet, the former minister also lambasted the Federal Government for allegedly begging the European Union (EU) to reduce the number of Nigerians it gives visas.
The Minister of Agriculture, Audu Ogbeh, was quoted as making the plea as a panacea to reducing the spate of youths’ migration to the union’s member countries, during an interview with newsmen at the end of the monthly meeting of Heads of Missions of European Union member countries in Abuja on Tuesday.
But in his tweet Fani-Kayode said, “I have never seen a Govt. that hates and despises its own people and treats them with as much contempt and disdain as Buhari’s. Governments are meant to support and encourage their people and not discredit and undermine them.”
