PDP Chieftain, Femi Fani-Kayode has sent tongues wagging following a political assertion he made moments ago. He had said politics is not war.
The former Minister of Aviation is known by many for his utterances of do or die politics but it seems all that has changed now.
Many Nigerians see him as a politician who is now singing a different song against his anticedent. They the former ministe's history on ethnic, religious, regional and party lines crises and all the drums of war he used to beat then were well known, documented and are still in public domain, wondering why there is a sudden change in his utterances and behaviours. They said antecedents speak volumes and history will not forget to those who led the country into the current mess she finds herself.
Others went further to remind of him of his utterances against President Muhammadu Buhari. They described his a part of his statement that says politics is not war as a joke, especially coming from a man who has consistently declared political war on Buhari over the years. They argued that his statement of politics is not war is inconsequential compared to his previous assertions and as such he should not be taken serious but a part of the rot in the political architecture of the country.
The PDP Chieftain said there is no hope for the country if Nigerians cannot iron out their differences without recourse to ethnicity, religion and party lines. He added that politics should not be a war.
Fani-Kayode was of the opinion that, "If we cannot talk to each other across ethnic, religious, regional and party lines then all hope is lost and we are doomed. Politics is not war."
