Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has predicted that Vice President Yemi Osinbajo would soon be turned into a washer of toilets if he did not resign within six months.
Fani-Kayode was reacting to President Muhammadu Buhari’s recent move that has been viewed by many Nigerians as targeted at reducing Osinbajo to nothing.
Buhari had on Monday set up an economic advisory council to replace the current economic management team headed by Osinbajo.
Mr Femi Adesina, the presidential spokesman, had said in a statement, that ‘’the Economic Advisory Council (EAC) will advise the president on economic policy matters, including fiscal analysis, economic growth and a range of internal and global economic issues working with the relevant cabinet members and heads of monetary and fiscal agencies.’’
Buhari had further instructed Osinbajo to seek approvals for agencies under his supervision, henceforth.
But in a tweet on his Twitter handle early Thursday morning the former minister wrote:
“If the short man doesn’t resign within six months they will soon be sending him to wash toilets. You came in on the same ticket, you sold your soul, you betrayed your people, your tribe, your region and your faith and you sucked your boss’ rectum for four years! Look at what you got in return! Shame on you!”
Fani-Kayode had in an earlier tweets wrote:
“Amb. Ayo Oke, the fmr. DG NIA, took care of you. He paid your bills and protected you. He kept all your dirty little secrets.He gave you wise counsel and comforted you even when you shed tears and said you couldn’t take it anymore.All this yet you sold him down the river.
“Your fingers have finally been caught in the cookey bar and your benefactors and detractors have begun their work. They have demoted you, humiliated you, used you and dumped you. By the time they finish with you you will wish that you had never been born.
“Worse still Oke is no longer there to help you.Poor chap.Politics is a terrible thing when compared to the legal profession.This is especially so when you are a Prof. of Law. At least you can go back to your pastoral work at RCCG when all else fails. My prayers are with you.”
