Former Aviation Minister, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode has warned National Leader of APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu against forming any form of alliance with Fulani leaders, saying that all notable Yoruba leaders that aligned with Fulani leaders in the past regretted their actions.
He stated this in a tweet on his verified Twitter handle on Wednesday.
Fani-Kayode said that his own father, Chief Remi Fani-Kayode, was one of those who aligned with Fulani leaders in the past and paid a “price”.
He identified others as Afonja, Chief Samuel Ladoke Akintola and Chief Obafemi Awolowo during the Nigerian Civil War.
The controversial ex-minister identified others as Chief MKO Abiola, Chief Bola Ige and former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
He urged Tinubu to learn a lesson from the elders before him.
Fani-Kayode said, “Every single notable leader from the SW that formed an alliance with the Fulani ended up regretting it and paying a price. From Afonja, to Akintola, to Fani-Kayode, to Awolowo (during the civil war) to Abiola, to Bola Ige and to Obasanjo. Can’t Tinubu learn from history?”
