VIDEO: My grouse with President Jonathan and his anti-Amaechi gang — Fani-Kayode

Femi Fani-Kayode

A former minister of aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, on Monday announced his defection from the ruling Peoples Democratic Party to the yet-to-be-registered All Progressives Congress.

Addressing journalists in Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti state capital, Mr. Fani-Kayode said he thought it was time to leave the “suffocating” party because he could not continue to share a platform with elements who could not accept the outcome of a transparent election that had 35 governors as voters.

The former minister also spoke about other reasons that led to his exit from the PDP and his grouse with the current administration.

    Femi, I think you made a lot of sense here. I am an unrepentant Nigerian citizen, a social democrat of the progressive left in politics-both local and global. In a muti-national country like ours, I will subscribe to federalism-hence I am federalist to the core, and I subscribe FULLY to Obafemi Awolowo’s welfarist ideological social democratic politics. Hence I will defend the corporate integrity and unity of Nigeria with my mind and brain every inch of the way. I will NOT deploy violence to do this. I will deploy RATIONAL tools to do this. So in this regard, really in the past I do not agree with you on many issues-for PDP is basically and incurably right wing, and I will never be a right winger in politics. Some of us are extremely fortunate in life thru the divine help of God, so we do not depend on government for our living and nurturing our family and children. Hence, as a social democrat, I am independent of govt and we will always speak the truth, and you will find me anywhere you find the working people of NIgeria. But that is not a PDP /NPN politics. Hence, my ideological disagreement with some of your writings on some issues. And mind you I have NEVER met you in person, you do not know me and I do not know you in person. And that makes it healthy for the disagreement with you is NOT about persons but about ISSUES. But I am rethinking certain things about issues like others. I want to thank you for the views you uphold here in this video about our country. This does not mean that we will not disagree in future on issues whenever they raise their heads. But on this, I want to say: God in his infinite mercies will bless you for standing up to power, irrationality, tyranny, ethnic chauvinism, impoverishment and pauperization of the working people of Nigeria rampaging in the land. That great heavily detribilsed Progressive Social Democrat and Federalist-Ọbáfẹ́mi Awólọ́wọ̀ who introduced ideological politics to Nigeria’s bourgeois politicking will turn in his divine grave and look at you and say “Thank you” Also, I say “O ṣé”, which means Thank you in Yorùbá. May God in his infinite and divine mercies Bless you and your family. Be safe.
