Aso Rock ‘demons’ behind Buhari’s ‘wife-belongs-in kitchen’ gaffe – Fani-Kayode

President Buhari’s infamous slapdown of his wife, Aisha, is the latest manifestation of some demonic powers far beyond the president’s understanding, a former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, said on Friday.

Mr. Fani-Kayode said “demons were speaking” through the president, as he could not have uttered such remarks on his own.

Mr. Fani-Kayode’s diagnosis was contained in a Facebook post he made to support a recent column by Reuben Abati, a former presidential aide.

“I am ordinarily not a superstitious person, but working in the Villa, I eventually became convinced that there must be something supernatural about power and closeness to it,” Mr. Abati had earlier written.

Mr. Abati said the demons were so ruthless that some married men were deprived of the ability to exercise their social status, leaving their wives little choice but to seek alternative means of satisfying their sexual cravings.

Mr. Abati, who served as a spokesman to President Goodluck Jonathan, said his suspicion that evil spirits cohabit with officials in the presidential villa was the primary reason he declined to pack into an apartment provided for his family there.

Mr. Fani-Kayode in a lengthy statement posted on his Facebook page agreed with Mr. Abati.

The former minister said Mr. Abati’s column reminded him of unusual events that happened when he was serving in the State House as a media aide to former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

“I worked in the Villa for three years as President Olusegun Obasanjo’s spokesman on public affairs and a lot of very strange things happened there,” Mr. Fani-Kayode said. “Amongst them is the fact that the two people that served as Senior Special Assistant to President Obasanjo on Media and Publicity one after the other, namely the much-loved Mr. Tunji Oseni and then later Mrs. Remi Oyo, both contracted a terrible terminal illness whilst in office and died a few years later.”

Besides those, Mr. Fani-Kayode said a number of administration officials suffered varying degrees of misfortunes.

“Amongst them were Col. Solomon Giwa Amu, Obasanjo’s hard-working and good-looking ADC and Mr. Stanley Macebuh, his brilliant and cerebral Senior Special Assistant on Public Communications,” Mr. Fani-Kayode said.

Mr. Fani-Kayode, therefore, said he couldn’t but agree with the theories in Mr. Abati’s column, especially as it coincided with Mr. Buhari’s comments that had been deemed largely distasteful.

“When our president can get up and tell the whole world all the way from distant Germany that his wife ‘belongs to the kitchen, the living room and the other room’ simply because she dared to speak her mind to the BBC, then you know that he is in the grip of something evil and that demons are speaking through him.

“It is all part of the spiritual dimension of living in the Villa that Abati was referring to in his essay.

“The President’s mind has become twisted and he is now possessed by strange and powerful entities. He needs a lot of prayers.”

Mr. Buhari has remained under intense public criticism for the comments.

To further buttress his point, Mr. Fani-Kayode made allusions to a series of events since Nigeria’s independence in 1960 that he believed were not normal.

Those events included the passing or illness of historic figures and their relatives.

Mr. Fani-Kayode highlighted them as follows:

“When it comes to our military rulers the story of consistent tragedy is no different- General Aguiyi-Ironsi, our first military Head of State was killed.

“General Yakubu Gowon, our second military Head of State, was toppled from power, exiled and lost his brother.

“General Murtala Mohammed, our third military Head of State, was killed and lost both his son and son-in-law.

“General Olusegun Obasanjo was our fourth military Head of State and we touched on his misfortunes earlier.

“General Muhammadu Buhari, our fifth military Head of State, was toppled from power, locked up for a number of years, lost his mother whilst he was in detention and was not allowed to attend her burial, lost his first wife, lost his daughter and now he has publicly described his second wife as nothing more than a “kitchen, living room and ‘other room’ wife”.

“His number two, General Tunde Idiagbon, was cut short under very strange and suspicious circumstances.

“General Ibrahim Babangida, our sixth military Head of State, was eased out of power and compelled to ”step aside” amidst massive controversy and turmoil and later lost his wife.

“His number two, Rear Admiral Augustus Aikhomu, lost his first son, Chief Ernest Shonekan, our first and only Interim Civilian Head of State, was badly humiliated and toppled from power.

“General Sani Abacha, our seventh military Head of State, lost his first son, was removed from power and was killed.

“General Abdulsalami Abubakar, our eighth military Head of State, as far as I am aware is the only exception and appears to have escaped any misfortune.

“Yet the picture is very depressing. This is indeed a catalogue of tragic events. Sorrow and pain just appear to be following sorrow and pain. It is a vicious circle of misfortune and calamity.

“Yet the most curious phenomenon and bizarre series of events of all is the fact that every single Head of State or President that has ruled our country from the Presidential Villa in Aso Rock, Abuja for three years or more has either ended up dying whilst there or has lost a spouse before leaving office.

“President Jonathan stayed there as President for four years in a stretch but the travails of his wife and her series of illnesses and medical complications which suddenly and miraculously ceased and abated after he conceded the 2015 election indicates that had he continued in office after 2015 he may have lost her and the demons of Aso Rock Villa would have come for their prey.

“Thankfully he left before they could lay claim to it and before the curse was activated.

“Babangida did not stay in the Villa in Abuja for up to three years so he and his wife escaped what has come to be known as the ”Villa curse”.

“It was the same for Chief Ernest Shonekan who, wisely, never stayed at the Villa at all but who chose to preside over the affairs of the nation from Aguda house next door and who remained in power for barely six months. General Abdulsalami Abubakar stayed at the Villa but he remained there for less than a year.

“However, Abacha, Obasanjo and Yar’Adua were not so lucky —each of them stayed at the Villa for three years or more and before the end of their tenure they either lost their own life or the life of their spouse whilst there.

“The story is that once the three-year mark is passed the curse sets in and the clock begins to tick. At the end of the day only one of the two spouses come out alive,” Mr. Fani-Kayode said.

Both Mr. Fani-Kayode and Mr. Abati have been mocked on the internet for failing to fathom the unique reasons behind each of the deaths and illness they cited.

The critics also said the two were hampering on conspiracy theories as a way of deflecting responsibility for their alleged ineptitude while in office.

    Evangelist Fani Kayode at it again. Well, let us here more from him by the time he shall have cleared his name from the serious seventeen accusations bordering on misappropriation and corruption levelled against him by the EFCC.

    • princegab

      Ffk is the proverbial Apple that remains a satelite of its tree.

      • Kallah Bature

        FFK talking about misfortunes of Aso Villa,forgot to talk of the misfortune of allegations of massive looting perpetrated by him and his masters of which they are being investigated now.

      • Mufu Ola

        His father was a major factor in emergence of election rigging in Nigeria. We read of Fani “the power” boasting duringthe 60s election that “whether u vote for us or not we shall win”!It was the ensuing rigging that triggered the Western crisis, which gave birth to the military coup/ counter coup & then civil war, that landed everybody especially Igbos where we are today.

        • princegab

          Very correct sir, thanks. Ffk is a snake cut in half ie too dangerous, pmb should do us a favour and cut its head.

        • otitokoro

          Hmm does that remind you of a late politician from Ibadan who said ‘ Be dibo be o dibo, a o wole.?
          Nigeria we hail thee.

  • Tayo

    This guy is really looking for attention. Sorry no one cares. But writing trash everyday should keep him busy in kuje

  • Simeon Nigel

    The bottom line here is that President Muhammadu Buhari should’nt have uttered such lowest grade description about his only dear wife and also on our beautiful dear mother, Her excellency Aisha M, Buhari. She is equally also a president capacity as representing our entire Nigerian women and mother to all of our up and coming Nigerian girls and daughters in view of the fact that also that there would not be even possible to have elected President M.Buhari by all Nigerian electorates as our current Nigerian president and into the ‘hot’ seat of Nigerian ‘golden’ stool of power if he is not married in the first place and he is a “bachelor” person. Oh! poor Aisha M Buhari whom should have better find comforts and protections under the hands of her only one husband, the president Buhari, but instead, her own very husband that she have had charis and showered him with her womanhood’s deep love was the same one today now derogatory being hostile towards her. Please, mama Aisha M. Buhari do kindly forgive our Daddy, President M. Buhari, he may have probably uttered those unkind and unfair description words about you at the heat of the moment without himself realizing the bad knock-on-effect by his words may caused later on.

  • persona

    FFK, you yet claim to love GEJ, but with your yeye hypothesis, you worked for his reinstatement.
    You did the same for OBJ and worked for every PDP team in the last 16 years. You are here castigating Buhari who has had a wife for 27 years and you don’t have any.
    A self professed Christian who fails to marry the same woman who is at home and you have turned to a baby factory. On the scale of regards for women, Buhari outperforms you and indeed, he is right, he claim superiority over you because he is a model of marriage and control of his privacy. You have a lady who was only seen during childbirth and when you were on your way to EFCC. The same woman has been in your Kitchen, Living room and other room. You cant allude demons to this, you are simply a damn hypocrite. For a man who was admitted for lunacy, you should indeed recognize demons when you see one.

    • Simeon Nigel

      Hi perona, you are dam right and I like this your hit-on comment here which best suit Femi-Kayode proper! proper!! yeah.

    • Onike24

      what do you mean? what about the mother of Aragon? isn’t she is wife? you know drugs can create psychosis Femi is a rebuke on his lineage.

      • persona

        To the best of my understanding, no woman stays with him unless the person he calls her partner.
        If he has a wife and has a partner, he then of all men should be pitied by calling himself born again Christian.

        • Onike24

          I was being facetious, he doesn’t have a wife, thrice married, thrice divorced. he now lives with his baby mama.

          • persona

            Hahaha sis, a man admitted for lunacy in far away Ghana should surely know how demons operate and he probably loves them so much that he keeps working for the continuous torment of his principals.
            I can then say, every person he supposes have been a victim of demons are those he prefers to work with. If demons are tormenting past presidents, it shows that the demons hate his principals so much, Buhari should be glad he didn’t work for him.

  • Simeon Nigel

    Femi kayode has too forgotten that President Muhammadu Buhari is not like his former predecessors of the likes of Jonathan Goodluck and Olusagun Obasunjo that often too quick in throwing out Nigerian Government oil money around particularly to those town-criers like Femi-Kayode on various media platforms and even probably or likely being offer appointment into the Aso Rock kitchen cabinet team inside Nigeria ‘hot’ seat of power enclave. It’s Buhari current time of a different ‘ball-game’ in power and by which it is no longer a flawless and unthinking-able period for ‘chop make I chop’ system type of Nigerian Government any more. Those old days for ‘anything goes’ life-style of appointments has now gone forever and for good in Nigeria of today. Except, that it is when next there is likely be another military regime back in power only by chance or do re-surface again, in which case this time around it will be not an easy ride for any military general either today or any time in the future terrain of Nigeria no more and not again.

  • Wale

    Buhari’s wife has no business dictating how he should run his office her role in his life should be restricted to the home. If she has any advice for him she should offer it at home not in the public.

    • Simeon Nigel

      I really do disagree with you because Her excellency Aisha M. Buhari is also a public figure very much at that. Simply for the fact that she is the legitimate wife to our Daddy M. Buhari, the Nigerian President who is in effect holding the Nigeria symbol of the golden stool ‘hot’ seat of power, and Aisha M Buhari is not just an ordinary woman but the mother of the president’s God gifted given children to him too. In addition, Aisha M Buhari is a symbol of the whole Nigerian women no matter where ever any Nigerian woman may be as well as the symbol of inspiration to all of Nigerian growing up young girls role model. Her recent views and comment were highly beneficial for the entire Nigeria national good. She has given out to our whole of Nigerian women’s strengths and confidence to be so bold to speak out on any form of burning issues that may be affecting the entire country, including also our women with their babies and children and also given to Nigerian women dignity and open respects to be seriously and highly recognize in our Nigerian men folks thinking faculty and mind to also understand too that women of Nigeria do matters in all schemes of the Nigeria state being that as they too all women did equally casted their votes for her husband to win the presidential election of 2015 year’s general election time. Mr Wale, please do kindly look at it this way too, that women are the society and without them there will be no society on earth. Do you also agree or not? But do remember that it is entirely up to you to accept my view or not to accept.

      • Wale

        Will you be happy if your wife choses to criticise you in public rather than within the confine of your room. I am not saying she should not criticise him please.

    • NinjaK

      Hmnn True True…..but isnt it obvious to you that she has offered advice, and had been fighting these horrible power mongers for a while? Aisha has been there with him for 27 years, she obviously knows the Buhari before election and the Buhari after election and she certainly knows there is something very fishy, and very disturbing.
      And she is angry, very angry – although very measured in her words.

      And when push comes to shove for Buhari one day, the various Mamman Dauras, Abba Kyaris, Dambazzaus, and WALES of these world (who obviously tend to know “Osho more than Osho’s mother) will disappear into thin air and not be found. It will be Aisha and her children that will be boiling hot water to dab the old man’s body in their solitude when writhing with any inflicted pains. So, the woman is crying out loudly now o.
      Shakespeare said it all….”Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned…..”

      • Wale

        When we are angry we are taught to be patient. There are better approaches to solve a problem like this instead of exposing your home to ridicule in anger. Will you do this to your spouse

        • NinjaK

          A man tries to think with his head. Women generally think with their hearts.
          For example, if you & your wife visit your Parent-Inlaws one day and you hear that a neighbour had been abusing them, the average man wants to hear the stories from all & sundry, even including their househelp if possible, before coming to judgment. But be rest assured that all your wife wants to know, and needs to know, if often “which neighbour” it is – and woe betide that neighbour if she is one that your wife had always hated – she does not need to hear again what even happened b4 she pounces (whether with mouth, physical, or otherwise).
          In this instance, the wife is always the deadliest opposition any man could ever have in his entire life once the marriage goes wrong. Just visit the Family Courts to hear divorce cases…. but believe me it is a dangerous thing to do cos I can guarantee you that you will start to see your wife in a completely different light from that day!!!
          I can only pray it does not get worse for Buhari’s home.

    • Reasonable

      That’s very true Bros @ Wale.

  • marc umeh

    Scientific analysis , nigerian style . Obviously disconnected events are stitched together , to formulate untenable theories .
    Why should anybody ascribe demonic powers to the chauvinistic views expected of any aging muslim.?

  • Assoc Middlebelt Ethnicnationa

    We have read about “he Zero factor”, a hypothesis which suggests that all American President’s elected in a year ending with a zero all die on office. As for Nigeria’s Villa “funny misfortunes”, we may label the ‘Abati-Kayode’ demonic theory, “The Aso Factor”. This facor speculates that all who dwell in the Nigeria presidential fortress christened the Villa, will inevitably eventually fall under the spell of celestial misfortune-causing influences which are rendered ineffective only when villa dwellers exit the place.

  • Bello Muhammad Sharada

    These are rubbish analyses, they are natural happenings and some of the incidences are man made and carefully calculated not supernatural.Just because PMB describe his strong woman as in charge of Kitchen,living room and other room does not mean he is posses by devil or demon, but this is his callous way of responding to many vexing issues going by his previous antecedents.

    • Ola

      Does it mean ANY of these kind of happenings doesn’t occur to anyone else in this country or around the world at the periods these senseless people; FFK etc are talking about?

      Other peole too have died or fallen during these periods: are thy als affect by the demons u kept in the Villa? The dwmons that u believe shud keep u in power?

  • Burning Spear

    This Yorubas have started again–oooh!!!! To be honest, I am really disappointed in this very watery article that FFK penned to appease the demons troubling the Fulani boko haramic Spirit of Bingo Buhari and Madam Halliburton–Nee Aisha Bingo Buhari—————————It is really sad that such can come out of the brain of FFK— at this time of our collective desire to quietly ask Buhari to vacate Aso rock–because of the economic woes of the country–among other social troubles brought unto us by his vision-less Jihadist rule—————Besides, while the Western World is busy–looking for ways to reside in the moon we are searching for the Spirits the pushed IBB to parcel bomb Dele Giwa—–Or why Dambazua smuggled late Yara Adua from Mecca–into Aso Rock–in the wee hours of the morning————–with a view to making sure that an Ijaw man Jonathan is not allowed to————head the presidency—————Can the same thing be said of the White House-in the USA–and number 10 Downing Street in London? This is another madness unlimited——–Then let us set up an agency charged with the job of searching for spirits and demons in Aso rock—————-Separation is the Answer—–Not the demon led rule of Buhari again biko———-Sadly the fault lies in us not the CIA installed government of Bingo Buhari———–Animals-

  • Olumide

    When the Demons are cast out of Buhari where will they go? This is the problem. It is better they remain in that body since he is already an old man so that when he goes on that journey of no return in a couple of yrs from now, the demons will go with him forever. ANy attempt to cast out the demons must be resisted by all Nigerians.

    • otitokoro

      Hopefully enter some swine or drown in Atlantic Ocean lol

  • God help us

    Seriously, I thought I was the only person who observed such. Patience Jonathan escaped, who knows if Buhari and Aisha will make it both alive

  • Taukume

    It is arrant nonsense to posit that demons reside in Aso rock or to infer that Demons spoke through Buhari. It is neither of both. Was it Demons who spoke through Buhari when he advised Nigerian government to stop killing terrorists or when he said he would spill blood if he loses elections? So my conclusions are:
    1) Either the Demons have been in Buhari for a very very very long time OR
    2) He is probably the Demon

    It is either one or the other and not the kind of confusion Fani Kayode is trying to formulate.

  • Babagordy

    This is nonsense

  • vagabonds in power

    PANDAC recommends that negotiations should of necessity be holistic and all encompassing as not to leave any lacuna for a return to hostilities at a future date as is being experienced today despite the (not so well articulated) Presidential Amnesty Programme which addressed the resultant effects (albeit ineffectually) in isolation of the causative factors.

    PANDAC having conscientiously identified the grievances of the Niger Delta peoples as captured in the following documents;

    • The Henry Willinks Commission Report (1957).

    • The Ogoni Bill of Rights (1990).

    • The Kaiama Declaration (1998).

    • The First Urhobo Economic Summit (1998).

    • The Akalaka Declaration (1999).

    • The Bill of Rights of Oron People (1999).

    • The Ikwerre Rescue Charter (1999).

    • The Warri Accord.

    • Chicoco Movement.

    • The Ijaw Republican Assembly CHOGM Demand (2004).

    • The PANDAC Conference (2005) Etc.

    And for ease of reference, has encapsulated the basic and fundamental Demands of the Niger Delta peoples to peacefully co-exist, co-habit and participate gainfully in the Nigeria project under three broad headings as follows;


    It should be appreciated that colonialism that coerced the ethnic nations of the Niger Delta into Nigeria never afforded our ancestry the discretion of choice, therefore, until all ethnic nationalities which aggregate the geographic innuendo called Nigeria come together as equal partners, regardless of size or numbers, and without pre-condition articulate a negotiated basis for union (THE UNION DECLARATION) our peaceful participation in the Nigeria project cannot be guaranteed.


    It is pertinent to understand that Niger Deltans would not be comfortable or amenable to any system of government that is restrictive to the ability of component parts to develop at their own pace, utilizing their God given human and material resources as they deem fit, or be subject to restrictive, unnatural and obnoxious laws that deprive them a means of livelihood and degrades their environment.


    The Niger Deltans will not accept federating units based on the artificially created States and Local Governments foisted by the military, which Balkanized culturally homogeneous, linguistically compatible native States with contiguous landmass and historical affinity. We aver that for Nigeria to succeed and remain one, it must be restructured either into a true Federal Commonwealth of Nigerian Nationalities or a Confederation of Independent Republics of Nigeria.

    These represent the irreducible minimum conditions of the Niger Delta peoples for our continued participation in the Nigeria project and for a lasting peace in the Niger Delta. The methodology and framework to achieve this unity in diversity, have already been articulated and we are willing to provide it for further impute by other stakeholders.

    This we believe is the only answer to the Niger Delta conflict and crisis, and also to the simmering Nigerian question.

    God Bless the Niger Delta!
