The way and manner the minister state for transport, Mr. Femi Fani-Kayode is behaving suggests that he has not learnt anything from history, the way he is carrying on now was the way his father did in the first republic, ganged up with retrogressive forces and unleashed a reign of terror on the people.
And, when the day of reckoning came, so afraid was Fani-Kayode the father that he begged the military that took over the reins of government that, he did not want to die. In fact, his two hands were in the air as he begged, and the military adventurists were so bewildered, and asked is this not the much talked about Fani-power?
The point here is that those who fail to learn from history will sooner than later become part and parcel of the relics of history.
Ordinarily, the Mr. Femi Fani-Kayode is a young man who should have a lot of good years ahead of him, but the way he is behaving shows very evidently that, if he looks back in the next five to seven years, he would be full of regrets, but the did would have been done.
Obasanjo is a person that uses and dump people, there is long list of such people since 1999, for instance, Doyin Okupe, Audu Ogbeh, Titilayo Ajanaku, Solomon Lar, Tafa Balogun, Ayodele Fayose, Otunba Oyewole Fasawe, Late Sunday Afolabi, Nkonjo-Iweala, Adolphus Wabara, many of the state governors as well as many who start with him in 1999.
Those have tasted the bitter pills of his voodoo politics are now licking their wounds. But one very important thing that he must understand is that if one is giving a job of a slave, it is always wise to do it like a free born.
This is the same Fani –Kayode that was rehabilitated twice in Ghana because of drug problems as a result of the frequent in-take of cocaine. The way he comports himself one is wont to think that, he still takes the dangerous drugs once in a while, if not what could have gotten to the head of Fani-Kayode that, that he would refer to him by name, without any courtesies and respect.
If Atiku could not be his father, he would at least be his big uncle, by every standard, Atiku is not Fani-Kayode’s mate, and so, what could have given Fani-Kayode the boldness and effrontery to be rude and impolite to the Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria?
The fact of the matter is that, General Obasanjo who himself do not have regard for anybody, he carries on as if the country is the personal estate of the president.
Fani-Kayode without mincing words, has become an embarrassment not only to himself, but the whole country in general. It would be recalled that he virtually begged members of the National Assembly for his ministerial appointment to sail through.

If that is this is the state of political journalism/commentary in Nigeria, then I have to say.....You have a long way to go.
Please feel free at any time to read your articles prior to publication. You would be able to pick up the many grammatical and basic spelling mistakes that my 7 year old would not dare submit at school.
Other than that, your article had no content - other than being a rabid rant about an individual with clearly better education and social standing than you.

Leave Femi to arrogantly climb the stairs and spit on everyone on his way up, he will meet us on his way down
