Femi Fani-Kayode, former Aviation Minister, has cautioned Nigerians to steer clear from the power tussle involving the family members of President Muhammadu Buhari.
Mr Fani-Kayode gave the advice while reacting to the latest squabble between the wife of the president, Aisha Buhari and the children of her husband’s nephew.
According to Mrs Buhari, the children of Mamman Daura, nephew of President Muhammadu Buhari, humiliated her while she attempted to gain access to an apartment allocated to her son.
Advising Nigerians to mind their businesses, Fani-Kayode said the issue is a private one and should be treated as such.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain, however described Fatima Daura, daughter of the president’s nephew who admitted filming the incident said to have took place a year ago, as shameless.
“I never make comments about the wives and children of my political adversaries because I do not think that it is right or proper,” Fani-Kayode said in series of tweets Tuesday morning.
“However I must say the following: those who recorded and leaked the video of @aishambuhari loosing her cool in the Villa are shameless and despicable.
“What happens in the home of @MBuhari is a private matter and it is not anyone else’s business.There ought to be a certain level of decency and decorum even in politics.
“What happens between Buhari,his wife and children is entirely their problem.We should leave his family alone,” the former minister added.
The politician also said that Fatima is still walking freely despite all that transpired lay credence to the fact that there exist a cabal whom the first lady has ceaselessly accused of hijacking her husband’s administration.
“No matter what you feel about @MBuhari filming his wife whilst in melt-down mode in Aso Villa and releasing it to the public is sheer wickedness. That this was done by Mamman Daura’s daughter speaks volumes. Had it been anyone else they would have been in the cooler by now!” Fani-Kayode added.
