Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, former Aviation Minister, commended President Goodluck Jonathan Democracy Day speech in which the president declares total war on the Islamic terrorist group, Boko Haram. Chief Fani-Kayode wrote on his wall on Facebook that:
“For the first time since he came to power four years ago I was genuinely impressed with President Goodluck Jonathan’s Democracy Day speech. He declared total war on Boko Haram and directed that our security agencies and Armed Forces should utterly crush them. Now that is a real President talking. For the last three years this is what some of us have been asking for. I am proud to be a Nigerian again. Let us hope that he puts his money where his mouth is and follows through with hard action. When we really want to fight no one fights better than a Nigerian. May God grant us victory in this this war against the servants of satan. The Haramites should bring back our girls and stop killing our people or utter face destruction.”
Chief Fani-Kayode who is member of the opposition party, APC, who was an ardent critic of the Jonathan government has soften his criticism on the government since visiting the President recently in Aso Rock. He has also advised his party not to field a Muslim-Muslim ticket. Rumour has it he planned to decamp back to the PDP but Chief Kayode denied that he planned to join the ruling party.
