  • Says Nigerians still in bondage

Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode says Nigerians are still in shackle of bandage and servitude from internal colonial masters who have proved to be even more relentless, ruthless and murderous than long gone colonial masters.

In his message to Nigerians as the country celebrates 59 years of independence, Fani-Kayode said since the end of our civil war in 1970, which resulted in the ethnic cleansing, mass murder and genocide of no less than 3 million innocent Biafran civilians, and despite all acts of provocation and injustice from those that see others as nothing but conquered vassals, the good people of the south and the Middle Belt have been reasonable and restrained and have refused to react violently.

“Instead they have patiently and politely protested against and peacefully struggled with that chain and shackle of Fulani bondage. Since independence we have attempted to get a better deal for our people from within a united and “indivisible” Nigeria but we have failed woefully.”

He said rather than getting better, things are actually getting significantly worse and the noose of slavery and handcuffs of servitude getting tighter.

“The last four years under President Muhammadu Buhari, who is undoubtedly more of a President of the North than a President of Nigeria, provides an eloquent testimony to that.

“His Government is shamelessly, apologetically and unabashedly a Government by the Fulani, for the Fulani and of the Fulani sprinkled with a small handful and pitiful coterie of southern and Middle Belt useful idiots and accursed slaves who have no sense of decency or self-respect, who, like Esau, have traded their future and destiny for a mess of pottage and who have sold their souls to the devil and their people down the river.

“For the Yoruba people particularly I am convinced that the only way to break that second and last shackle and chain of servitude and bondage is for the South West to exercise her inalienable right of self-determination and leave Nigeria.

“The battle for restructuring which many of us have supported and fought for over the last 25 years is long lost and its advocates are no longer being heard.

“We have failed to succeed in that noble cause because those that believe that they own own Nigeria and that they were born to rule her in perpetuity have treated that quest with contempt and ignored it with disdain.

“As a consequence of their unbridled intransigence, insatiable lust for power and control and inexplicable desire to dominate and enslave each and every one of us, it is increasingly clear to me and millions of others that Nigeria can never change as long as she continuous to exist as one.

“Given the foregoing, the only option left for us if we are to maintain our self-respect and dignity and win our freedom is a total and complete division and separation.

“I am therefore glad to publicly identify myself with the proud Yoruba nationalists of the Balogun Collective and other notable and responsible Yoruba self-determination groups who have risen to the occasion, who have said enough is enough and who believe that it is time for the rise and establishment of the mighty nation of Oduduwa.

“The Yoruba people, always so ready to accept and accommodate others and always so liberal and generous, deserve no less.


“Though ours is a peaceful and passive struggle and not one that is interested in the usage of arms or indulging in any form of violence, anarchy or lawlessness, it would be a grave error on the part of anyone to underestimate our determination, test our will or underestimate our resolve.

Happy Independence Day Nigeria!
