- A former minister of aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari tor resign
- According to him, the fearless Buhari Nigerians used to know is gone
- He said the old Buhari would not have ran away from 'rats' that invaded his office as claimed by the presidential aides
A former minister of aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has cautioned President Muhammadu Buhari to resign from office.
The former minister said if President Buhari was his father he would have made him resign.
Speaking to journalists in Abuja, Fani-Kayode also called on elder statesmen in Nigeria to urge the president to resign.
He said: “The strong and fearless Buhari Nigerians used to know would never be the same again.”
“The Buhari that we knew before was a man that vied for the Presidency on three separate occasions, kept coming back and succeeded on the fourth attempt. He was a man of courage and strength; but the Buhari that came back is not the same man."
Listing a few of some things Buhari has failed to do as a president, Fani-Kayode said only those who hate the President have encouraged him to continue with the struggle.
He said: “The new Buhari arrived in Nigeria. We saw him alight from the plane, waved to the crowd, got on the podium and they played the national anthem but he didn’t have the strength and wherewithal to inspect the guard of honour that was mounted for him.
“That is the new Buhari. The following thing that happened was this: He promised Nigerians that he would do a live broadcast in which he would tell us a number of key issues but the new Buhari could not do a live broadcast.
“He did a recorded broadcast because he was too weak and feeble to do a live broadcast. And it didn’t stop there; the new Buhari could not go to his office because they claimed that rats and rodents have taken over the office; old Buhari would not run away from rats, the new Buhari does.
“Finally, a day after that, the Federal Executive Council, the most important that runs the affairs the nation, the new Buhari called off the weekly FEC meeting because he said he was receiving a report.
“Maybe the rats have penetrated the council chambers as well. The old Buhari has not come back and will never come back. This man is not well. It is not his fault and it’s nothing that anybody should gloat about," he said.
The former minister also noted that it is only a few Nigerians who love the president that have called on him to resign and return to his family to take care of his ailing health.
“The right and proper thing for any elder statesman to do is to call and demand for the resignation of President Buhari who is simply not well enough to run the affairs of the nation.
“I have nothing against him but when it is clear that the Lord Himself is sending a signal by all these signs and wonders. The last time I heard of rats pursuing people, I read about it in the Bible when Pharaoh was tormented by frogs, flies and various plaques," Fani-Kayode said.
