Former aviation minister Femi Fani-Kayode has blasted President Muhammadu Buhari’s Independence Day speech delivered on Sunday, October 1 as a ‘shameful’ one.
In a singular tweet on Monday, October 2, Fani-Kayode said the president’s speech confirmed his earlier submission that Buhari hated the Igbos.
After this, Fani-Kayode went on to reveal what he tagged as a ‘bitter truth’ about President Buhari’s relationship with southern Nigeria.
According to him,. President Buhari does not just detest the Igbos but also other people from the south and the middle-belt areas of the country.
Fani-Kayode’s words came just hours after those of another minister Oby Ezekwesili.
We had reported earlier former minister of education Oby Ezekwesili condemned the tone of President Muhammadu Buhari’s Independence Day speech which he delivered in a nationwide address on Sunday, October 1.
According to Ezekwesili, who is also the convener of the Bring Back Our Girls group, President Buhari’s speech was so ‘divisive and uninspiring’.
Ezekwesili made her submission in a tweet on her verified Twitter handle on Monday, October 2 afternoon.
