Nigerians early this morning took to the comment section of the Facebook page of the Nigeria former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode to condemn the minister for describing a man in a viral video who confronted Nigeria Female Football players known as Super Falcons inside a public vehicle in Vietnam, Austria as animal and grubby little foul-mouthed person.
The angry looking man in the viral video who described himself as a Nigerian told the Super Falcons in a high emotional laden voice that they are representing a terrorist organization.
The man described Muhammadu Buhari presidency as a terrorist government responsible for kidnapping and killing of innocent Nigerians.
Femi Fani-Kayode in a post around 2 o’clock early this morning said irrespective of the difficulties Nigerians are passing through under Muhammadu Buhari presidency; does not warrant the man or any other person to attack another.
Adding and describing the man as animal that is grubby little foul-mouthed who should have been slapped.
It looks as if the post woke some Nigerians from sleep.
In less than 35 minutes after the post, more than 200 persons that commented, out of which more than 90 percent expressed deep displeasure against the opinion of the former Aviation Minister.
Excerpts of Femi Fani-Kayode post and some of the comments presented below:
The first question is why do our Female National Football Team have to travel by public transport in a foreign country?
Can’t they rent a private bus? Secondly why do they not have bodyguards and some security given the fact that they are women in a foreign land and that they are representing our nation.
Next is an assertion: no matter how anyone feels about Buhari or Nigeria I think it is despicable for the man to attack and subject our players to such a vicious verbal assault and to insult our country.
If he were a foreigner and not a Nigerian he would have been rightly accused of being a racist. He is nothing but a grubby little foul-mouthed and rude self-hating Uncle Tom.
He is what Malcom X called a “house-nig(g)er”.
I despise such people. If things are bad at home does that mean every Nigerian must be insulted?
Does this animal have no self-respect or sense of patriotism or decency?
Things may be tough in our country and we may be going through hard times but no-one has the right to insult, humiliate, threaten, talk down to and treat our people with contempt and disdain.
Not even a fellow Nigerian that is stuck abroad!
The man deserves a hot and dirty Nigerian sl(a)p for his impudence and insolence.
Pity that none of the young Nigerian men in that bus that were subjected to his foul-mouthed and self-hating rubbish didn’t give him one!said Femi Fani-Kayode.
Grammar! The fact remains that anybody who is directly or indirectly supporting, defending, representing, and laundering the image of the zoo called Nigeria in order to sustain it’s continued existence is an accomplice in the genocide going on in Nigeria.
And that person can never be free from blood guiltiness.said JọJi Anyabuike.
I disagree with you on this one F.F.K.
The man aired his views which absolutely nothing but the truth..said Engineer Chris.
You failed on this sir.
The man is a hero. Nigeria is a disgrace internationally.
What do u want him to protect again?
A country that does not respect the rule of law or court order, International kidnappers? Please, stop all these name calling.
The guy has registered his name in the golden book of heroes.said Loveth Elendu.
If our ‘leaders’ are uncomfortable with public criticisms, they should avoid running for public offices.
If they can’t take criticisms as feedbacks and as report cards – on their stewardship, then they have no business being in government.
If they governed well, people will talk well of them.
Yaradua was a Fulani man, yet, he was well loved because he was the president for ALL Nigeria. Not for a certain tribes.
This man is criticizing the same government that you criticizes everyday, but, according to you, he has no right to do so.
You, F.F.K can bash Buhari, but others can’t.
Now do you see who’s an hypocrite in the room.
Maybe this is why people are cynical about you these days.said Femi Ogunjobi.
Talk about our team entering public transport, and leave the rest of the matter alone.
I’d thought you’d be reprimanding the minister for sport, but instead, you’re making a man who’s exercising his freedom of speech the subject of your post.
Excuse me sir, you need deliverance!
And by the way, the players don’t need bodyguards, because they’re not in Nigeria!
Oga forget big grammar and let’s face it, do you love Nigeria the way it is?
No day pass without bad news of bandits and kidnapping, people protests and got killed in numbers and the government denied it.
The man is simply voicing out his grievances since you politicians has refused to speak out.said Cache Diamond.
You may have benefitted immensely from being a Nigerian but there are people who can’t say the same. While it’s not ok for them to behave like they did to these ‘Innocent ‘ Nigerians who wanted to make their undeserving country proud, it’s deeply frustrating being a Nigerian and since Nigeria has stripped what is left of the dignity of her citizenry, you can’t tell them how to react. Buhari can’t be told how to react as well.
Make everybody get at. We’re all the problem of the countrysaid Chuks Jesse.
No attack or insult here, the only place I see attack and insult is where a former aviation minister were attacking a journalist.said Asodike Chinedu.
I beg to disagree with you for once.
We can use any means to fight this deaf Fulani administration.
If our sportsmen can boycott matches now, our generation will be saved from this unfortunate regime.
Recount that one of the things that stops apartheid in South Africa is ostracism from sporting activitiessaid Akintunde Olusegun Amos.
Fani Kayode, you are just being double-standard in this issue concerning Nigeria.
Stop being neither here nor there in issues concerning one nigerianess.
Everyone has the right to protest, the man simply registered his displeasure with the entity called Nigeria.
You have just spoken with your third-world ridden mentality.said Engineer Nwite Godwin
F.F.K you think the shit you all do in the name of security thereby intimidating the common man in the society is obtainable in the western world.
You mentioned giving them private bus and bodyguards, oga even Prime Ministers e.t.c goes on public transportation without bodyguards.
So keep that your zoo janjaweed mentality in nigeria.
The so called super eaglet should be ashamed of themselves, the man told them the simple truth.
I have seen players abandon a match after kick off in protest of a citizen who was wrongfully treated, majority of these ladies if not all are from the south of nigeria, and with all the happenings they still went to represent a terrorist government.
To the girls that were yapping, may your lives be wasted just like this terrorist government has done to the innocent people in nigeriasaid Peter Chukwu.
You don’t know what you are saying, if your family are among those killed by sanwo iku and ojuyobo during endsars protest in Lagos, you will understand better.said Adeyemi Sunday.
Remember many people are been killed in this country on a daily basis, which day did you not hear news in Nigeria without blood, death, kidnap or violence.?
