“Those of us that warned the country that this would happen were insulted and lampooned. Now, we have to live with the consequences of our choice for the next four years”
Those were Femi Fani-Kayode’s words, coming on the heels of the “controversial” appointments made by President Muhammadu Buhari so far.
“Controversial” described the uproar generated when Buhari made yet another set of appointments dominated by northerners on Thursday, to the chagrin of those who accuse him of “northernising” the country.
In reaction to people’s anger, Fani-Kayode wrote on his Facebook page:
