Fani-Kayode and Gambari

Critic, Femi Fani-Kayode has reacted to Prof. Ibrahim Gambari’s appointment as new Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari.

According to Fani-Kayode, with the appointment of Gambari as Chief of Staff, for the first time in the nation’s history, “we have a Fulani President and a Fulani Chief of Staff both serving a Fulani Govt. with a Fulani agenda.”

“This has never happened before and very soon the results will be self-evident. To make matters worse Gambari is himself a hardliner and he was Buhari’s Foreign Minister in 1984 when the latter was military Head of State. He served a tyrant and a dictator before and he is serving a tyrant and a dictator again.

“And he served not just any tyrant and dictator but Nigeria’s greatest military tyrant and dictator and now he is set to serve Nigeria’s greatest civilian tyrant and dictator,” he said.

Fani-Kayode went into memory lane how Alimi conquered Afonja and took over Ilorin to establish the Fulani dynasty.

Fani-Kayode said unlike his predecessor in office, the late Abba Kyari who was a Shuwa Arab, Gambari is a Fulani.

He said Gambari’s only interest throughout his distinguished career as a career diplomat was to do nothing but further and protect the interest and hegemonic agenda of the Caliphate in Nigeria.
