Fani Kayode's Letter To Buhari And The Nation
Fani Kayode is a familiar name and one man who consistently displayed rare arrogance and reputed for mischievous political propaganda particularly during the 2015 general elections.
He is an inner temple member of the class of highly corrupt peoples Democratic Party (PDP) where he served under President Olusegun Obasanjo as Minister of Aviation.
Kayode was dragged to court for various financial crimes and money laundering under Jonathan's administration but was later considered for the role of a spoiler to attack the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its Presidential candidate, now President Muhammadu Buhari.
The heinous financial crimes of Kayode was highly manipulated; in preparation for the hard roles he had to play for the PDP and former President Goodluck Jonathan.
He got victory upon victory in all the financial crimes plus several billions of Naira to run the worst presidential media Campaign ever in the history of Nigeria's nascent democracy.
Kayode during the 2015 general elections controlled both print and electronic media with the mega funds allocated to him by President Jonathan, part of which has been traced to the accounts of the African Independent Television (AIT) and several other media organizations within and outside the country.
Kayode's job and focus was clear and very simple; rubbish APC and pull down her Presidential candidate, Mohammadu Buhari. For this unpatriotic Nigerian his assignment can be achieved if only the federal government would give him the necessary support and protection. His request was granted.
Kayode took a dramatic swipe at President Buhari then APC presidential candidate, referred to him as a certificate forger and had no simple five credits at college grade levels to qualify him to join the Nigerian Army.
For reasons best known to Kayode, PDP and the federal government, Buhari's certificates deposited with the Nigerian Army could not be found including several other certificates obtained by Buhari through internal and external military courses during his several years in the military service where he rose to become a full General and military head of state.
Nigerians were thrown aback, confused and perplexed at Kayode's uncommon political communication rascality, naked blackmail and falsehood.
Daily and every minute, Kayode was live on local and national television stations explaining with graphic pictures how Buhari through the back door criminally forced his way into the military service without required qualification.
He so much concentrated on Buhari's certificates as if the future of Nigerians and the Nigeria nation depended on it.
Rather than focus on his principal's electoral promises and party manifesto to garner support, Kayode unknowingly ruined the PDP and its Presidential candidate, Goodluck Jonathan through his demonic political propaganda. The rest is now history. President Jonathan and PDP crashed like a huge log before the axe, also likened to the scenario between the biblical Goliath and little boy, David.
Here we are, same Kayode of the Buhari forged certificate hall of fame is back, repositioning and strategizing to pull down the barely eight (8) months old APC national government under President Buhari.
Kayode is back because Olisa Metuh has been fingered in certain shady financial crimes which, according to Metuh, was private and will remain private between him and former President Jonathan.
The PDP Chief Publicist voice has been cracked and tactically worthless because of recent findings that part of the controversial arms deal money may have sneaked into his personal bank accounts.
Game plan? Simple. Kayode is back, well funded by the PDP corrupt cabal to wreck havoc on President Buhari and the APC government.
His recent open letter to Mr President is the preface to the many chapters of Kayode's series of media attacks expected in the coming days and into the future if he is not caged and fixed right away.
How do you fix Kayode? Very simple. This young man have ugly past that need to be revisited. I need not tell the government of the day how do go about it. But one thing is sure; Kayode will single handedly distract President Buhari and his cabinet if certain drastic measures are not crafted or put in place to check the evil ink that will flow out of his controversial pen.
Lai Mohammed, Femi Adesina and Shehu Garba must of a necessity brace up to face the huge political propaganda challenges ahead.
Money is media and Kayode has been well funded to take care of the media. His mission is to rubbish the Buhari's administration to rescue some corrupt PDP folks that are currently facing criminal charges for various financial crimes. The looters have recruited Kayode to kill the war against corruption.
Kayode will make nonsense of the on-going war against corruption by taking on the federal government on a regular basis from now forward.
His financial crimes at the Federal Ministry of Aviation and other agencies are naked. Kayode and his rogue cabal will have no hiding place. No level of intimidation can stop President Buhari's war against corruption and the socioeconomic remedeling of the Nigeria nation.
Kayode should be checked while the presidential media team prepares and ready to fight the dirtiest political propaganda of the 21st century.
Kayode is back and ready to pull down APC government. It is our collective responsibility to ensure that this cracked and crooked agent of darkness does not scuttle our hard earned democracy and APC sweet victory at the polls.
This government should not take Fani Kayode for granted. The man is extremely dangerous and mischievous. His media Campaign against the APC and President Buhari lays credence to this fact. Nigeria is on the rise again, forward ever, backward never.
