Trending: Femi Fani Kayode calls Vice President Yemi Osinbajo errand boy

Image result for Femi Fani-KayodeImage result for yemi osinbajoNigeria’s former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has continued his attack on the person and office of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.

In a new article posted on his Facebook page today, Fani-Kayode shared Osinbajo’s photo and described the Vice President as a political errand boy. Read what he wrote below

BEHOLD THE POLITICAL ERRAND BOY

1. His helicopter crashed but instead of him to proceed to a hospital his boss asked him to continue sharing trader money.

2. A. Senior Advocate of Nigeria and Professor of Law, yet under him lawlessness is practiced: he deputises for a fellow who has no proof of both primary and secondary education.

3. They took a Bill to the United Kingdom for your boss to sign and publicised it to further humiliate you.

4. As an ERRAND boy, your boss sent a junior Minister to represent him in an event that you were present.

5. A real ERRAND boy… They have removed all your aides from Aso Villa to a rented apartment in Maitama.

6. ERRAND boy, you went and knelt before Abba Kyari to stop the criminal investigation against you.

7. We told you this would happen but you refused to listen. Today, your two bosses, Tinubu and Buhari, are against you.

8. As for your Pastorship, well, we don’t know again.

9. Sorry! With this latest humiliation of taking a document to an ailing man without recourse to you, it serves as a confirmation that you are now a certified ERRAND boy.

10. The latest is that your boss has now sacked 36 of your aides in your office. Are you waiting for them to lock you out of Aguda House before you resign and go back home to Ikenne?

11. We don’t pity you. You opted for it. While he’s in the United Kingdom he sent you to his village Daura to attend the turbaning/coronation of an unknown Chief. So sad! We pray you receive sense.Taking a document to an ailing man without recourse to you confirms you are now a certified errand boy- FFK to OsinbajoTaking a document to an ailing man without recourse to you confirms you are now a certified errand boy- FFK to Osinbajo

Why Tinubu left Ogun rally in anger

It was reported that President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday at the Ogun State All Progressives Congress presidential rally in Abeokuta, narrowly escaped being stoned as suspected thugs pelted the National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole, with stones and water sachets.

The crowd also booed Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, Oshiomhole and the national leader of the party, Bola Tinubu.

The rally, which started immediately after President Buhari arrived at the MKO Abiola International Stadium, Kuto, Abeokuta venue of the event at about 3.00pm, was suspended for some minutes following the violence that broke out.

Violence erupted when Oshiomhole was invited to the podium for his speech. As he began to speak, suspected hoodlums started throwing stones at him and one of the stones flew in the direction of the President.

He was saved by one of the security operatives who was hit by one of the stones thrown in the direction of the APC chairman.

The development angered the leaders of the party, including Tinubu, who left the podium while the President was making his remarks.

Tinubu was so enraged that while he was leaving the podium, he flung the APC’s flag which was placed beside him and went to sit in his car parked in the President’s convoy.

Daura Update: DSS debunks reports of finding N21bn in home of ex-DG Lawal Daura

DSS denies reports of finding N21bn in home of ex-DG Lawal DauraIt has been reported that the Department of State Services (DSS) has denied reports making the rounds that N21 billion was found in the home of the immediate past director general, Lawal Daura.

In a statement issued by its spokesperson, Tony Opuiyo, DSS said there is no iota of truth in the allegation that N21bn and unspecified number of permanent voters card and ammunitions were found in Daura’s houses in Katsina and Abuja. Read the statement below

“The attention of the Department of State Services has been drawn to the circulation of fake information and videos in which several items were said to have been recovered from the Katsina and Abuja homes of its immediate past Director General, Lawal Daura. These non-existent items include: N21bn cash, 400 assorted and sophisticated small arms and light weapons/rifles, and thousands of permanent voters card belonging to Niger Republic immigrants.

“In another video also in circulation, some persons believed to be personnel of a security outfit were seen forcing open safes stocked with money. The security operatives were described as executing a recovery operation at the Katsina home of the former DGSS.

“Consequently, the service wishes to inform the public that these videos are false and should be disregarded. So far, no such recovery operations have been undertaken by the EFCC or any other security agency at DSS’ office or residences of the former DG.

“There is no doubt that different interests have continued to give varied accounts of the incident of last week at the national assembly. It may, however, be recalled that the presidency had pledged to carry out a detailed investigation regarding the alleged national assembly siege.”

 

Daura’s appointment was terminated by acting president Yemi Osinbajo, following the invasion of the National Assembly by DSS officials last week Tuesday.
