NIGGERIA: Former Minister of Aviation and chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Femi-Fani Kayode has taken a swipe at Acting President, Yemi Osibanjo for saying Buhari treats him like his son.
Fani-kayode said it was disappointing for a 60-year-old to publicly make such statement.
The former minister was reacting to a statement credited to Osinbajo during his visit to the palace of the Emir of Katsina, His Royal Highness, Alhaji Abdulmumin Usman, on Thursday.
Osinbajo during the visit to the monarch said he sees Kastina as his second home because of the way Buhari treats him.
“I feel very much at home in Katsina. Moreso, because this is the State of the President who has taken me as a brother; in fact the President has taken me as a son in the way he treats me. “I pray the Lord will preserve our President to continue to lead, as the nation has voted him to do. He seriously believes in Nigeria unity”.
Reacting via a tweet Thursday night, Fani-Kayode said Nigeria was in serious trouble.
“The President treats me like his son and his brother”- VP. A 60 year old man can say this? We are in trouble,” he tweeted.
