The Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode (FFK) was a guest speaker in today’s special edition of Politics Today on Channels Television. FFK spoke on the Presidential Ambition of the Presidential Candidate of the All Progressive Congress, APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his choice of running mate.
According to FFK, he said Nigerians shouldn’t base leadership strength and capabilities on religion, and that we should not make religion a deciding factor in choosing leaders who occupy public offices.
The Presenter asked FFK to speak on Tinubu’s visit to the Former President of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo, and reacting to this question, he said Tinubu visited Obasanjo because he (Obasanjo) is a Yoruba leader, and that he hopes Obasanjo throws his weight behind him in the forthcoming election.
The presenter quoted a speech attributed to Tinubu which says “Obasanjo is the greatest election manipulator, his time has expired” and asked FFK to react to this statement. In his part, FFK said the fact that Tinubu said that doesn’t mean he is not friends with Obasanjo, and that politicians are friends when they see in real life. FFK said he doesn’t think Bola Ahmed Tinubu will still call Obasanjo the greatest election manipulator now.
