Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, on Thursday, made a post on his verified Facebook page where he eulogized the Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, naming him ‘White Lion’.
According to the post, the human right lawyer said he had a fruitful meeting with the governor yesterday, describing him as “irrepressible and inspiring leader who has immense courage and cannot be intimidated or cowed by anyone”
He said, “It is always a joy to spend quality time with the White Lion and we had a fruitful and productive meeting.
“Governor Bello is an irrepressible and inspiring leader who has immense courage, who cannot be intimidated or cowed by anyone, who has achieved great things for his state and people and who has contributed immensely to the establishment of peace and progress in our country.
“We have been working closely together for a considerable period of time now and we shall continue to do so over the years.
“I am very proud of him and, together with others, we shall continue to build bridges of peace, love and unity in our country and help to move her forward.
“Great changes are coming very soon! Stay tuned and stay blessed”.
The post, however, did not go down well as Nigerians stormed the comment section to lambast the former Minister over his unstable nature of politics.
Some angry Facebook users who reacted to the post, said former President, Olusegun Obasanjo was right in his recent comment on FFK.
Recall that Obasanjo recently referred to the former Minister as his boy saying, “provide him food, he will eat and then sing for you. He’s a smart boy”.
Others referred to Fani-Kayode as someone who seizes every opportunity just to enrich himself in the name of building bridges in the country

You’re sounding so denuded if not obliviously lost to pettiness these days. No thanks to “crumbs” thrown”.
