According to Fani-Kayode: “I do not hold brief for anyone and I speak only for myself but permit me to say the following. If we insist on talking about who deserves to go to jail I put it to you that the first candidate is President Muhammadu Buhari.
“This is a man who played a key role in the northern officers revenge coup of July 29th 1966 in which 300 Igbo officers, a Yoruba military Governor and an Igbo Military Head of State were murdered in cold blood.
“This is a man who committed some of the most heinous and bestial atrocities as a young officer during the Nigerian civil war.
“This is a man that organised a bloody mutiny and armed insurecction against his own commander-in-chief and conspired with others to topple and remove a democratically-elected President in a military coup d’etat in 1983.
“This is a man under whose watch as Minister of Petroleum 2.8 billion U.S. dollars was stolen in 1977. This is a man under whose watch as head of the Petroleum Trust Fund hundreds of millions of U.S. dollars went missing in 1998.
“This is a man under whose watch as President and Minister of Petroleum 25 billion U.S. dollars went missing from NNPC in 2018.
“This is a man that has unleashed his army on Shiite Muslims and IPOB youths and thereby committed genocide, mass murder and ethnic and religious cleansing against his own people.
“This is a man who has driven some of our most brilliant, insightful, courageous and enlightened sons and daughters into self-imposed exile out of fear and trepidation for their lives and liberty.
“This is a man who believes that the lawful and legitimate expression of the natural desire for self-determination and freedom from ethnic and religious hatred and bondage is an act of treason.
“This is a man who is incapable of understanding the meaning of the word “restructuring” let alone comprehend its utility, importance and expediency.”
