Controversial former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode has revealed that the solution to the crisis presently rocking the ruling Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, lies in President Goodluck Jonathan listening to the advice by former President Olusegun Obasanjo that he should not seek re-election in 2015.
”The only hope left for the PDP is if President Goodluck Jonathan listens to former President Olusegun Obasanjo and those behind him and drops his 2015 ambition. Failing that, the fight in the PDP will never end”, Fani-Kayode said in a statement.
Recalling the fate of those who dared to lock horns with the former president, Fani-Kayode stated, “The truth is that Obasanjo is one of the greatest political strategists that Nigeria has ever known and he is an extremely dangerous adversary. I know him well and his ways are deep. Ori Baba le ga ni (he’s very strong-headed). Go and find out what happened to all those that betrayed him or tried to kill him. Their end is never good.”
Calling on President Jonathan to swallow whatever pride he has and “get on his knees and beg his political mentor,” Fani-Kayode added, “Only Obasanjo, with the help and support of President Ibrahim Babangida and Vice President Abubakar Atiku, has the power, authority and moral gravitas within the PDP to call the dissidents to order and rally their support. Without that, President Goodluck Jonathan is finished and he should just wave goodbye to his 2015 re-election ambitions.
“The APC, with the support of the PDP dissidents, will form the next Federal Government of Nigeria. That is the way to go. PDP as we once knew her has gone forever. The ship has hit the rocks and she has sunk to the bottom of the sea. She is dead and buried and my prayer is that her soul rests in perfect peace”, the former minister concluded.
