Former minister of aviation, Femi Fani Kayode, has described most leaders from the Southern part of Nigeria as cowards.
Fani-Kayode made the remark while reacting to comment by the acting Chairman of Arewa Consultative Forum, ACF, Alhaji Musa Liman Kwande, that Northerners will vote for only a presidential candidate of northern origin in 2023 irrespective of the political party.
Speaking over the weekend, Kwande urged Northerners to strive towards developing the region by voting for people who are pro-development and not those who are self-centred.
However, Fani-Kayode lamented that the alleged cowardice of Southern leaders gave Kwande the basis to make such comments.
In a tweet, the former Minister wrote:
“In 2023 people from the northern part of the country will vote for a presidential candidate from that region irrespective of the party – Musa Liman, Acting Chairman of ACF.
If not for the cowardice of most southern leaders you would not have the nerve to speak like this.
