I won’t apologize to anyone for paying tribute to Abba Kyari, says Fani-Kayode


Femi Fani-Kayode has berates people who criticised him for paying tribute to late former Chief of Staff, Abba Kyari,says he knows Abba Kyari for over 40years

According to him, that he won’t apologize to anybody for doing so.

“The last thing I need is validation from any man. Why would I crave for that when I have the love of God?

“Regardless of their disposition towards me I will continue to hold on to my views and express them. I owe myself, my God and my nation that much if nothing else,” he said.

He however said, his opposition to the Muhammadu Buhari Government for the last five years had been as constant as the northern star and that it remained as strong today as it ever was.

“I warned Nigerians what would happen if he came to power in 2015 and I was proved right. I warned them again in 2019 and again I was proved right.

“I have spoken and written more than anyone else in this country over the last 5 years about the atrocities of the Fulani herdsmen and Boko Haram and the tyranny, wickedness, evil, corruption and incompetence of the Buhari regime.

“I have also suffered more, lost more, been humiliated more, been persecuted more, been incarcerated more and been insulted more than most people in the country due to my unrelenting opposition to them.

“They have literally taken everything from me and it is only by the grace of God that I am still alive and that I have not been killed.

This is because my opposition is not just to Buhari but to the dark and sinister forces that he represents and what he stands for which is beyond the comprehension of the overwhelming majority of the Nigerian people,” he said.

According to him, he had risked all and had exposed and done more damage to those forces than anyone else in this country in the last few years by their own admission.

“I have also spoken up for the weak, the poor, the oppressed, the deprived, the voiceless and the persecuted across ethnic, religious and party lines. And I have done all this right under the noses of those in power and not from distant shores or foreign lands.

“That does not however mean that I have lost my humanity. That does not mean that I will relish in anyone’s death. That does not mean that I will dance on the grave of others because death comes to us all and doing so diminishes us as human beings and makes us little better than beasts,” he stated.
