Former Minister of Aviation, Femi-Fani Kayode, has called out Nigerians saying that Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo rejected to be on the list of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) for the 2023 general elections.
While reacting to the claim, Fani-Kayode said those saying Osinbajo and Boss Mustapha rejected to be on the list should go ahead and have their heads checked.
It would be recalled that Bola Ahmed Tinubu clinched the presidential ticket in June defeating the former Minister of Transport, Chibuike Amaechi and Prof. Osinbajo at the convention in Abuja.
FFK urged the Peoples Democratic Party to stop obsessing and whining about APC’s same-faith ticket and the composition of the ruling party’s PCC.
This much was contained in a tweet obtained from the verified handle of the former minister where he said: “Anyone that suggests that Prof Osinbajo or Boss Mustapha rejected a place on the APC Presidential Campaign Council because of our Muslim/Muslim ticket needs to have his head examined.”
”They left Bode George, Segun Mimiko & many others from the Wike camp out of their PCC because these men had the courage & decency to reject the proposition of another 8 years of Fulani rule after President Buhari which would endanger the peace and unity of our country and turn every southerner & Middle Belter into a slave. Are those that took this noble stand to reject slavery, subjugation & bondage, not heroes? Is it a crime to insist on being treated as an equal? Should these men not be commended for their foresight & vision & decency?
”Yet instead of honouring them their party of slaves & slave masters seek to punish them for their noble stand & insist on having their presidential candidate, their National Chairman and the DG of their PCC are ALL from the North even though this violates their party constitution & all the strictures of justice, decency, equity & morality.
”What type of madness is this? Is this the party that OBJ, UMYA & GEJ led? What a pity! What a tragedy! If these PDP creatures do not stop this nonsense even the Obidients will defeat them & push them into 3rd place in the presidential election. Finally get this: we do not zone political offices on the basis of religion, we zone them on the basis of region zone & political expediency
That is why the PDP fielded a Christian/Christian ticket in Osun state & won the Governorship election even though the state has a 50% Muslim population and no one complained. Why should the leaders of PDP be so concerned about our Muslim/Muslim ticket when their party fielded a Christian/Christian one in Osun? What is good for the goose is surely good for the gander!
”This issue is a matter of choice. Someone tell these misfits of the Peoples Dunce Party & their accursed leaders to stop obsessing & whining about our same faith ticket & the composition of our PCC and instead meet us in the field. They should stop talking crap and crying more than the bereaved and let the people decide. That is what you call democracy.”
