We are desperately in need of a volunteer…
Someone who will prescribe a chill pill to Femi Fani-Kayode.
The “why does he need a chill pill” or “what is this about” question is on your mind right now. But that’s the same question on our minds too, and more. Why is Femi Fani-Kayode so furious? This deep-seated hatred for President Buhari, is it any longer about the current state of the nation or just a personal resentment for the man? Why is Fani-Kayode barking so loudly these days?
In his most recent published “essay” as he calls himself an essayist, the man had all the bad words in the book for the president.
“The President has no memory”
“Shame on you and all those that think like you”
“His legacy is one of failure, lost opportunities and shattered dreams”
Can you please calm down sir?!
The article he titled, A President with no memory and no recollection of History, reeks of animosity and you do not need to read between the lines to smell the bad blood but what does Fani-Kayode hope to achieve by this?
We have not gotten over the bizarre claims he made early on in the week, in a Facebook post, about the series of plane crashes of 2015 that claimed over 400 lives. 11 years after, Femi Fani-Kayode who was appointed Aviation Minister months after the spate of aircraft crashes at the time, revealed that the incidents were man-made, premeditated and victims were mere sacrifices. This revelation was unsolicited and is absolutely uncalled-for. The timing too is bad. Families of victims will be marking 11 years since they lost their loved ones and now they hear this? That their wives, husbands and kids were sacrificial lambs for “most of our leaders”; as the man puts it. That post would have been incomplete if Fani-Kayode did not take some glory for himself, for the purpose of self-satisfaction and “I’m not part of those leaders who assisted Nigeria in her journey to this deplorable state”. Such despicable piety!
What is more worrying about Femi Fani-Kayode is the common man stance he takes in his articles; like he feels the “poverty, misery, tears and suffering” he outlined. It’s okay to identify with the rest of us now that the government of the day does not favour you but it’s unacceptable. You’re no different from all those people you loath now.
Well, as much as everyone is entitled to his own opinions and social commentators and critics like Fani-Kayode are allowed to check the government’s excesses, this recurring tirade will do more harm than good. Femi Fani-Kayode needs to rise to the occasion, quit writing essays, maybe run for office in 2019 and save us all from the hands of these “cold-blooded reptiles and certified psychopaths” we have as leaders.
Who essay don epp?
But in the meantime, who has that chill pill prescription?
