Fani-Kayode reacts to Nigerians being maltreated in China


Critic, Femi Fani-Kayode has reacted to reports of Nigerians being maltreated and thrown out of Chinese Hotels in the midst of Coronavirus outbreak.

There have been reports that Nigerians were being maltreated and thrown out of their hotels in Guangzhou China.

Nigerians in China who had travelled there for business purposes a few days before the federal government announced a lockdown are accusing Chinese authorities of maltreatment, just as they said the Nigerian government did not care about their plight.

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Nigerians in Diaspora, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, had called on Nigerians thrown out of their hotels in Guangzhou China, to report themselves to the Nigerian Consulate in the Asian country for proper documentation and further actions.

Reacting to the development, Fani-Kayode lamented and questioned why the Federal Government should even allow Chinese doctors into the country in the first instance.

“Whilst Buhari is inviting the Chinese to Nigeria to “help fight Covid 19″, the Chinese Govt. is throwing Nigerians out of their homes, persecuting them, subjecting them to the most vile & despicable human rights abuses & mocking, insulting & humiliating them on a daily basis,” Fani-Kayode decried.

Also, Nigerian singer, Timi Dakolo, reacting to the development on twitter said “This Nigerian diplomat in China should just return to Nigeria and take up any political office he wants.

“I have never seen any political officer holder defend a Nigerian like this.”


  1. I continue to wonder why we are never objective in our comments on News.
    The raised Topic of the news is never discussed rather, we begin to attack the speaker and calling them names as if each commentator are Angels themselves.
    What will the first commentator say that FFK have said wrong here, what?
    Either he served well or not when he served is a matter for another time.
    At present, the issue being discussed is the safety of Nigerians whose human right is being trampled wrongly upon by chinese authorities faraway in China.

    Is it okay for us to be welcoming Chinese people into our country while they the same Chinese are mistreating OUR BUSINESSMEN not IMMIGRANTS, who have gone to their country for their usual business transactions?

    Is it wrong for FFK to call a spade a spade, by telling Nigerian government that, it should be “an eye for an eye”, Chinese people shouldn’t be given a beffiting welcome here while OUR BUSINESSMEN are about to be used as LAB RAT faraway in China?

    If a Nigerian company is to be established in China, will the Chinese government have allowed NIGERIAN HEALTH SPECIALIST to enter their country during this Lockdown in the name of coming to attend to Nigerian Employee of the Nigerian Company?

    People, please let’s stop reasoning with our anus and think rationally on the Subject matter of the News!

  2. This so called Fani Kayode is not in positionf to fight for commoner and he can never fight for all is just a noise maker who is just trying to gain cheap popularity for those who doesn’t know his history/antecedent, Nigerians should not allow to be fooled by a common thief that did not see anything good in government simply because is no longer relevant, call him and ask him when he was serving under PDP as a minister does this man have any positive impact on any common man the answer is capital NO, the only thing he can do is to opress his immediate constuency with big car worth of millions from 5 star hotel to Dubai from Dubai to UK prodigal son, don’t worry you will hear more about later.
