A popular and controversial Nigerian politician has spoken following allegations that Buhari wants to arrest ex-leader, Obasanjo.
Former minister of Culture and Tourism as well as Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, has alleged that the All Progressives Congress, APC-led Federal Government has perfected plans to silence all opposition voices, starting from the former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
According to Daily Sun, FFK made the claim in a statement he signed yesterday and warned that such move would not augur well for the country’s democracy.
Fani-Kayode was reacting to Obasanjo’s allegation that Buhari was planning to arrest him. He described as disturbing, reports about Buhari’s plan to frame up, arrest and detain Obasanjo on trumped-up and politically-motivated charges.
“The government is also planning to target other key opposition figures and elder statesmen as we get closer to 2019 such as General T.Y. Danjuma, General Ibrahim Babangida, former President Goodluck Jonathan and a handful of others. It appears that Buhari will stop at nothing in order to ensure that all his critics are silenced.
“The plan to implicate and silence all these leaders, together with key figures in the PDP, such as Ayo Fayose, Emmanuel Udom, Ibrahim Dankwabo, Nyesome Wike, Darius Ishaku, Godswill Akpabio, David Mark, Ike Ekweremadu, Lyle Imoke, Uche Secondus, Sule Lamido, Ibrahim Shekarau, Abubakar Suleiman, Kabiru Turaki, David Jang, Atiku Abubakar, Dele Belgore, Jumoke Akinjide, Nenadi Usman and others is condemnable.”
The former minister also accused the government of planning to give him and potent voices against the government “the Nnamdi Kanu or El Zakzaky treatment.”
