A Former Minister of Aviation and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, Femi Fani-Kayode, has knocked a Former Member of the UK Parliament, George Galloway, over his comment on President Bola Tinubu.
Fani-Kayode, who claimed to have resolved not to say anything at this moment, when people throw bricks at President Tinubu because the party won the election and the battle is long over, said he will make an exception on Galloway’s case.
Galloway had last week, through his podcast channel, episode 263, on August 9, 2023, asserted that he only recently learnt that Mr Tinubu was a Batman for mafia and drug dealers.
Galloway stated this while reacting to the ECOWAS threats on the military group in Niger, who recently ousted the elected President of the country, Muhamed Bazoum, through a military coup.
Following the development in Niger, the ECOWAS leaders threatened to activate troops of the organisation, to effect the reinstatement of the ousted President of the country, after the military group turned down all the diplomatic options, taken by the ECOWAS.
Reacting to the threats, Galloway who was a member of the British Parliament between 1987 and 2015, said President Tinubu whose victory in the last Presidential election is being challenged in the court, has no moral standing to speak out against the ongoing coup in the Republic of Niger.
Mr Galloway, famed for his brutal candour, asserted that he only recently learnt that Mr Tinubu was a bagman for mafia and drug dealers. He said these were discouraging attributes for someone tasked with leading a country.
“To my absolute astonishment, forgive my ignorance; I had no idea that this man was a bagman for the mafia and the drug dealers in Chicago, Illinois, which doesn’t seem like a great qualification for the leader of Nigeria,” the former British MP said in episode 263 of his podcast, Mother of All Talk Shows (MOATS), aired August 9.
“These people are now talking about democracy in Niger; many of them don’t have the leg to stand on, do they?” Mr Galloway said, throwing a jab at Mr Tinubu’s so-called moral compass to condemn the coup.
He added that “First of all, there are very serious and credible allegations of electoral corruption in his election, and it’s still actually before the court.
“The opposition has never accepted his election,” he stated.
Reacting to Galloway’s comments, Fani-Kayode who described him and other whites as “sanctimonious, self-seeking, self-serving, self-righteous, self-obsessed and narcissistic white boys,” said he can’t beat it when they “start mouthing off about our country and our leaders.”
He however warned Galloway, not not to bite off more than he can chew.
Fani-Kayode wrote: “I started to look into the past of the ECOWAS Chairman, Tinubu. I didn’t realise that he was a drug dealer in the United States. And the election that brought him to power is still being credibly contested as fraudulent”-George Galloway, Former Member of the UK Parliament.
“I had promised myself that I would not say a word at this time when people throw bricks at our President because we have already won the election and the battle is long over.
“However here I will make an exception because I just can’t bear it when these sanctimonious, self-seeking, self-serving, self-righteous, self-obsessed and narcissistic white boys start mouthing off about our country and our leaders.
“And of course, these are my words and thoughts and I speak only for myself.
“Someone please tell this old fart called George not to bite off more than he can chew. I can bear such insults and words from a Nigerian without responding but not from a foreign leader.
“The stereotyping of our leaders as being fraudulent, corrupt, drug dealers and God knows what else coupled with the usual asinine and puerile misrepresentations and stereotyping is not something that we will sit by silently and take from foreigners, particularly when they are from the West.
“If he is looking for fantastically corrupt, murderous, pernicious, deceitful, two-faced, criminally-insane, drug-dealing, callous, heartless, avaricious, bloodthirsty, bloodlusting, godless, psychotic, psychopathic, neo-colonial and hopelessly fraudulent leaders he should look within and to a series of Western Prime Ministers, Presidents and leaders like George W. Bush, Tony Blair, Barack Obama, David Cameron, Nicolas Sarkozy, Boris Johnson and so many others who collectively and over the last 25 years orchestrated, ignited, sponsored and led illegal wars and proxy wars in Middle Eastern, North African, Asian and East European countries and thereby slaughtered millions of innocent people, took away their dignity and self-respect, destroyed their lives, ruined their future, shattered their dreams, enslaved their civilian population, lumbered them with pliant and dullard puppet-leaders and pillaged, plundered and stole their national patrimony, mineral resources and treasure all on a false premise, a fraudulent pretext and a perfifdious, stinking lie.
“Georgy Porgy needs to be careful when he throws bricks our way: unlike others, we Nigerians tend to strike back and when we do we hardly miss our target.
“Permit me to end this with some genuine and heartfelt unsolicited advice from someone who used to respect you and who has read and listened to virtually all you have said and all your contributions, both within and outside of Parliament, over the last 40 years: take our newly-elected President out of your dirty little Englander mouth or prepare for the mother of all wars and a great deal of turbulence in your murky, inglorious, meaningless and thoroughly uninspiring little life.
Stick to your podcasts and behave yourself. ✊🇳🇬💪💯💥🙏👌👍🤳.
