The youth wing of Oodua Progressives Youth Movement, OPYM, has alleged that former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode is one of those planning coup against President Muhammadu Buhari.
The body made the claim while reacting to Fani-Kayode’s recent article, THE RINGING OF COUP BELLS AND A CAUSE FOR DEEP CONCERN,” where he noted that ever since 1966, the northern ruling class had always effected a coup d’etat whenever they feel sufficiently threatened with the loss of power..
Accusing Fani-Kayode of being part of those seeking to unseat PMB using force. OPYM handed the former Minister of aviation warning against making mockery of the president’s health.
The Coordinator of the organisation, Kola Salawu, said comments of the former Minister suggest that he is one of those planning to lure the military to usurp power from Buhari.
In a press conference on Friday, Salawu. said: “Tragically, our brother and former minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, we cannot deny him now that he has made a nuisance of himself, has confirmed knowledge of an impending coup in Nigeria because of the ill-health of President Muhammadu Buhari, in his article titled ‘THE RINGING OF COUP BELLS AND A CAUSE FOR DEEP CONCERN’. In that article, Fani-Kayode amply demonstrated beyond doubt that he knows what he was talking about.
“Fani Kayode has been accused of being part of those who are seeking to unseat Buhari via a coup Only a few days ago, Fani-Kayode’s co-traveller, Dr Junaid Mohammed covertly made a similar threat of coup in an interview published by a national newspaper. He insisted that the north would remain in power irrespective of outcomes.
” This made us reason that he read from the same script as Fani-Kayode. Thankfully, military authorities issued the timely warnings for soldiers to stay out of politics and politicians stop inducing soldiers.’’
