FFK berates Tinubu for not greeting Ooni properly

Fani-Kayode says Tinubu's presidential ambition cannot stop agitation for Oduduwa Republic
Fani-Kayode and Tinubu

By Nimot Adetola Sulaimon

Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode on Thursday, frowned at Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu for not greeting the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi properly.

Earlier at a recent event in Lagos, Sen. Tinubu was seen sitting with Oniru of Iruland during his coronation ceremony.

The trio; Asiwaju Tinubu (sitting left), Ooni of Ife (standing middle), with the Oniru of Iruland (sitting on his throne).

The Ooni was also pictured with them, leaning over to speak with Tinubu. However, FFK found this to be ”deeply insulting” for a Yoruba political leader not to rise to greet a Yoruba traditional ruler.

He wrote on his twitter; ”that the Asiwaju of Bourdillon refused to stand up to greet the Ooni of Ife speaks volumes. This was not only deeply insulting to every Ife & indeed son & daughter of Odua but it is also a crying shame.

” Would a northern pol. (political) leader refuse to stand up for his traditional ruler? he asked.

Fani-Kayode was recently ordained as Sadaukin of Shinkafi emirate amidst growing controversy.

  1. When a man accumulated so much than he possibly could if he had served with honor, fairness and uprightness he inherently becomes big headed and disrespectful.

    What a sad tale of overblown ego of a retired taxi driver.

    Tinubu and his 2 bullion vans. What a political baggage.

    What a situation. I take a stroll. Nonsense.

  2. Please anyone know what is really take place at that moment before you all started follow man with faulty brain? Please don’t let just reach conclusion in any statement or report of this stupid man called Femi Fani-Kayode, because nothing good have ever come out from him.
    LET WORK TOGETHER TOWARD GOOD NIGERIA AND DROP THOSE THAT DOING EVERYTHING THEY ARE DOING FOR ADVANTAGE OF THEIR POCKET/ACCOUNT.
    GOD BLESS NIGERIA!!!!

  3. The new slave of emirate well known for insulting his father’ s mate has forgotten that Obas derived their positions, powers and authorities from government and governors. Therefore, no traditional ruler including Ooni is over or above any present or past governor.
