Igbo is not a dirty word – Fani-Kayode replies Buba Galadima

2 Min Read

Former Aviation Minister, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode has urged a Member of the APC Board of Trustees (BoT), Buba Galadima to come clean on his statement that the North would support a candidate from the South East to be president but not Igbo presidency.

He stated this in a Tuesday tweet while reacting to Galadima’s viral comment.

Galadima had said, “I have a lot of friends from South East, I can vote for any of them if they present themselves but I am not agreeing to Igbo presidency”.

Reacting, Fani-Kayode faulted him for trying to create an unnecessary distinction that should not exist, insisting that the “people of the South East are Igbos”.

The ex-minister added that there was nothing wrong with Igbo presidency.

Quoting the comment, Fani-Kayode said, “When a Fulani was supported for the Presidency did we say we will support a North Westerner and not a Fulani? Why the double standard?

“We must call a spade a spade. The people of the South East are Igbos, the word IGBO is not a dirty one and there is NOTHING wrong with an Igbo Presidency.”

  • This is unnecessary attack from my friend Femi Kayode. A Nigerian President from south east simply means what it is but not a president that has a narrow ethnic agenda and I think that’s what we need in Nigeria. Since this is a political permutations Nigerians seem to have adapted. A Nigerian President from South East will assuage people from that area that they do not have a political ceiling placed on them but what it will actually bring to Nigeria is actual healing from the nightmare of the civil war.
    A president of South East that is committed to actual healing; that will bring the entire country together for common good; in the economic sense a president that will bring about baking more cake for Nigerians and not just concentrate of getting a lion share of our small cake to his people and friends. That’s what we need
