The Bitter Truth Fani-Kayode Needs To Tell Us, Aribisala Grudges

Nigerian social critic and political maverick, Femi Aribisala a few days ago took his time to discredit the stance of former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode on who should be elected as the Executive Governor of Lagos State.

Aribisala tackled Fani-Kayode's claim that Yorubas in Lagos should be wary of become who in the state, henceforth.

In his epistle, Femi Aribisala claimed that Fani-Kayode should rather tell Nigerians about an allegation of financial mismanagement leveled against him when he was the Aviation and stop hankering after a small real-estate called, Lagos.

Femi Aribisala wrote:

"Nigerians are everywhere. There are currently five million Nigerians in the U.S. There are even more Nigerians in Sudan; over eight million. Nigerians constitute a significant percentage of the population of Cote d’Ivoire.

"There are more Nigerians in Equatorial Guinea than Equatorial-Guineans. There is no country on planet earth where you will not find a sizeable population of Nigerians. U.N. projections predict that Nigeria will soon be the fourth largest country in the world, surpassed by only China, India and the United States. Under such circumstances, a Nigerian like Femi Fani-Kayode should not be hankering after a small real-estate called Lagos. Nigerians must become citizens of the world.

"Joseph was a Jewish slave in Egypt. Nevertheless, he rose to become the Egyptian Prime-Minister. That happened in biblical days, and not twenty-first century Egypt. More recently in 2008, Barack Obama, the son of a Kenyan, became president of the United States.

"In 2010, John Abraham Godson, a Nigerian-born Polish citizen became a Member of Parliament in Poland. In April, 2013, Cecile Kyenge, born in the Democratic Republic of Congo, became the Minister of Integration of the Republic of Italy.

"Surely, Femi Fani-Kayode cannot discern these signs of the times.

"Back home, M.K.O. Abiola, a Yoruba man, won his famous presidential election in 1993 by relying on Hausa, Fulani, Ibo and other votes. He was not just elected by Yorubas.

"Yorubas did not even vote for Olusegun Obasanjo in 1999. He became President by relying on northern, eastern and south-south votes. Goodluck Jonathan became president in 2011 by forging a coalition that stretched across the Niger and the Benue to all parts of Nigeria.

"When Odumegwu Ojukwu died, the entire nation of Nigeria consoled the Ibos. Collectively, we declared with one voice that the civil war is truly over. We must not allow the Femi Fani-Kayodes to turn back the clock.

"Next time Femi Fani-Kayode wants to tell us “the bitter truth,” he should tell us about N19.5 billion Aviation Fund mismanaged under his watch as Minister of Aviation under the Obasanjo administration. That is the bitter truth we need to hear from him right now.
