    “I know Fani, give him food and he will dance for you” OBJ. “Please interviewer go the next question, Fani has no credibility” RCA. Fani just finished dancing his last stanza on March 28, now a free agent in the prepaid propaganda transfer market. The only man expelled and refused association by a political party and advised to go elsewhere when others were being invited to join. Drugs destroy, absolute drugs destroy absolutely.

    Buhari is the most ruthless dictator. It is in his blood. Fani is right, he warned Nigerians before the election on how it would look like living in the Republic of Buharistan and no body believed him, now look at what is happening in Nigeria. Barely six months in office Nigeria is having her share of Political prisoners. He is treating Mr Dasuki the same way he treated our revered leader and the President Nigeria never had, Chief Obafemi Awolowo and denying him his right to go to abroad for his treatment therefore causing his demise. This same hypocrite had the balls to go to the funeral of the late sage’s widows funeral. A leopard does not change it’s colour.
