Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has expressed disappointment with former President Olusegun Obasanjo over his silence on a comment by Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu about the Yorubas.
Fani-Kayode said: “The fact that our revered leader and one of the fathers of our nation, former President Olusegun Obasanjo, can sit there and say nothing when Emmanuel Iwanyanwu, who I have always respected, describes the entire Yoruba race as “rascals” that the Igbo “will DEAL with” tells me that the rumour that he is NOT a fully-fledged Yoruba man and that his father was an Igbo may well be true.”
“Whatever the case, this is not the OBJ I once knew, loved, defended and worked so hard for. Something has gone wrong.”
“No one could have made a statement against ANY tribe in the presence of the old OBJ that we all knew and respected and got away with it.”
