Treat Everyone Equally To Preserve Nigeria's Unity - FFK Tells Buhari
Fani Kayode and President Buhari

Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has called out President Muhammadu Buhari over his decision to address the released schoolboys of Government Science School, Kankara, Katsina State in Hausa language.

Recall that President Buhari addressed the boys in Daura on Saturday, where he reportedly urged them to stay in school.

However, reacting to the development, the former Minister stated that the move by the President violates the obligation to treat everyone equally, which he says is a threat to the unity of the country.

He wrote:

“You addressed the Kankara students at a public gathering in front of the nations’ media in Hausa rather than English. May I remind Mr. President that English is the lingua franca of Nigeria & not Hausa & that those kids are NIGERIAN children and not just Hausa Fulani children.

“Millions from all over the country, including the South, prayed for their release & they also deserved to understand what you said to the kids when you met them. If you want Nigeria to remain one then treat us all as equals. If you do not then carry on with what you are doing.”
