Former Aviation Minister, Chief Femi Fani Kayode has released a
statement on the recent alarm raised by the ex-president, Olusegun
Obasanjo, alleging that there was a plot to detain and frame him by
the Federal government.
FFK, in a statement made available to PoliticsNGR, alleged that the
Presidency had finalized plans to give other opposition leaders the
‘Nnamdi Kanu’ treatment. Below is his statement in full;
“I have read the disturbing reports about the Buhari administration’s
plan to frame up, arrest and detain President Olusegun Obasanjo on
trumped up and politically-motivated charges.
It has also been brought to my attention that they have threatened
Though I am not surprised because this is nothing new for this
government. That is their stock in trade and they have been doing it
for the last three years to anyone and everyone that opposes or
What bothers me now is that President Buhari has become so jittery
that he is prepared to do anything to stay in power. I have done my
research and I have discovered that the plan is real.
The government are 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, 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 like
They also plan to give some of us the Nnamdi Kanu treatment and
make us dissapear or give us the Sambo Dasuki and El Zak Zaky
treatment and lock us up indefinately but they will fail.
Such is Buhari’s desperation that he is even attempting to discredit
and destroy key members of his own party like
Abdul Fatah Ahmed,
Timi Frank and others.
Nobody is safe anymore, not even legislators, media houses,
journalists, bloggers, religious organisations or NGO’s that oppose or
criticise the Federal Government.
Nigeria is fast becoming a fascist police state where dissent is seen
as a crime and where those that oppose the President are perceived
as enemies of the state and prisoners of war.
They forget that we have a divine obligation and patriotic duty to
oppose evil and tyranny in the land and nothing will make us shirk
Let it be clearly understood that we will not sit by idly and allow
Buhari to continue to threaten, harrass and intimdate all those who
oppose him. We are not intimidated and we have no fear.
Governments come and go and no matter what he does Buhari will
not be there forever.
Taking this matter to a level of threatening the lives and liberty of
people like Obasanjo, Danjuma, Babangida, Jonathan and other elder
statemen and seeking to destroy key opposition figures for no just
cause is dangerous and unacceptable and it will have consequences.
We do not want war in Nigeria: we want peace and the Buhari
government should desist from provoking a situation and a series of
events that may end up spiralling out of control.
It is almost as if they are begging for war and that is tragic. They
may have the full machinery and power of the Federal Government
but we have the Living God. Nothing can stop us in our divine
mission to stop him and rescue Nigeria.
The truth is that any untoward or irrational course of action will be
met with a corresponding and appropiate reaction which may have
dire implications for the peace and unity of our nation.
This game must be played within the rules of engagement or else all
hell will eventually break lose . Buhari must be warned.
Peace, fair play and justice must be allowed to reign in our nation
and those that oppose the President must be treated with the
respect, decency and decorum that they deserve.
They are not enemies of the state and prisoners of war but law-
abiding and patriotic Nigerians that have no faith in him and that
wish to rescue Nigeria from his tyranny. There is no crime in that
and they do not deserve to be killed or to be locked up for it”.
