I am not a member of Yoruba Nation, IPOB, says Fani-kayode “I’m a nationalist”
Former minister of aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has stated that he is no longer a member of Yoruba Nation or the Indigenous People of Biafra, rather he is now committed to the Unity of Nigeria.
Fani-Kayode disclosed this on Channels TV on Thursday night after he dumped the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP for the ruling All progressives Congress (APC).
The former minister added that he is now working to unify Nigeria and he was no longer interested in the disintegration of the country.
He said: “I am committed to keeping Nigeria together. I am also committed to ensuring that those who want to break up Nigeria are reached out to and spoken to with respect, love and compassion rather than say kill them all”
“That’s my position and i believe that’s more productive so long as you don’t pick up arms to kill policemen, you don’t pick up arms to kill innocent Hausa-Fulanis, Innocent Yorubas or Innocent Igbos, you don’t target people because of their religious beliefs, as long as you don’t do that, you will be my friend.”
“You can remain my friend as long you don’t indulge in violence”
“We must ensure that we work together to keep this country one.”
