Former minister of Aviation, Femi-Fani Kayode has replied second Republic House of Representatives member, Juniad Muhammed who recently opined that should anything happens to President Muhammadu Buhari, the North will insist on another two terms in 2019.
According to Muhammed, “The zoning in the Peoples Democratic Party has not worked. Now it is trending in the All Progressives Congress. It is either we fix it or ship it out altogether. If that is not done, then you have to go back and redress it by saying that in the course of zoning and rotation, (Umaru) Yar’Adua died in office.”
Reacting, however, Fani-Kayode, a chieftain of the PDP said the Acting President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo will step in if Buhari dies.
He was reacting in an article entitled, “Junaid Mohammed’s bunkum and the final battle for Nigeria’s independence.”
FFK, as he is fondly called said, “The truth is that if anything happens to Buhari nothing will happen and Nigeria will move on.
“If anything happens to Buhari, the Acting President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, will continue his term of office with full powers, he will have the support of the Nigerian people and he will finish his tenure hail and hearty.
“If anything happens to Buhari in 2019 Nigeria may have a southern President after which the country may be restructured.
“If anything happens to Buhari the south and the Middle Belt will NOT go on bended knee to beg and appease the north and we will not be moved or intimidated by the usual threats of carnage and violence by the likes of dark and sinister men like Junaid Mohammed.
“If anything happens to Buhari it will be a defining moment and we will know whether ours will remains a nation at peace with itself or a theater of bloody conflict and civil war.
He said the real enemies of Nigeria are the misguided northern elites, who believe they own Nigeria.
“Our enemies are not the ordinary people of the core north but those misguided elites who believe that they own Nigeria, who see the rest of us as nothing but chattel, who treat us like field hands and slaves and who believe that our lives are worth less than the lives of their cows.”
