A former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has berated Nigerians alleging that vice president Yemi Osinbajo rejected the offer of being in the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) because of the Muslim-Muslim ticket fielded by the party.
Naija News recalls that on Friday the council list, which comprises about 400 members was released by the PCC Secretary, James Faleke, a federal lawmaker.
However, conspicuously missing from the list was the name of Osinbajo who was a strong contender in the APC primaries.
Reacting to the development, Fani-Kayode said that those who were saying that Osinbajo and Boss Mustapha rejected a position on the list because of the same faith ticket fielded by the APC should get their head examined.
He wrote, “Anyone that suggests that @ProfOsinbajo or @BossMustaphSGF rejected a place on the @OfficialAPCNg Presidential Campaign Council because of our Muslim/Muslim ticket needs to have his head examined. Why are these creatures from the Peoples Dunce Party so obsessed with our PCC.
“They left Bode George, Segun Mimiko & many others from the Wike camp out of their PCC because these men had the courage & decency to reject the proposition of another 8 years of Fulani rule after Pres. Buhari which would endanger the peace and unity of our country and turn every southerner & Middle Belter into a slave.
“Are those that took this noble stand to reject slavery, subjugation & bondage, not heroes? Is it a crime to insist on being treated as an equal? Should these men not be commended for their foresight & vision & decency?”
He slammed the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for not applauding those who refused to be on their PCC list.
The former minister wondered the reason PDP was obsessed about the APC same faith ticket, advising them to pay attention to their party instead.
“That is why the PDP fielded a Christian/Christian ticket in Osun state & won the Governorship election even though the state has a 50% Muslim population and no one complained. Why should the leaders of PDP be so concerned about our Muslim/Muslim ticket when their party fielded a Christian/Christian one in Osun? What is good for the goose is surely good for the gander!,” he added.
