Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has said former governor of Lagos State and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, was warned that ‘Northern allies in APC’ will betray him.
He said: “Another is the destruction and demystification of Bola Tinubu and his Yoruba loyalists by his erstwhile Northern allies in the APC. Only a fool did not see that one coming and I am rather surprised that Tinubu’s followers are now crying foul and alleging that there is a northern conspiracy. Didnt they know that before? Were they not warned over and over again?”.
The former Aviation Minister was the spokesperson of the Peoples Democratic Party 2015 Presidential Campaign Organisation.
There were speculations that there are efforts by some forces in the party to demystify the perceived growing influence of Tinubu, who was instrumental to the formation of the APC and also led the way in the election of President Muhammadu Buhari
Fani-Kayode also warned that “there are many other grave consequences which the Nigerian people will witness, in a most harrowing and frightful manner, in the next few months and years. “May God deliver our people and our nation and may we learn to make the right choices”.
There is a big crack in the APC over the leadership of the National Assembly as the party’s preferred candidates did not emerge leaders of the National Assembly.
Senator Bukola Saraki and Hon. Yakubu Dogara had defied party’s order to support to Ahmed Lawan and Femi Gbajabiamila for the Senate President and House Speaker respectively. These positions were later won by the former against their party’s choice.
