A former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has threatened to move a motion for the secession of the South-West geopolitical zone from the Nigerian Federation.
He issued the threat in a tweet, via his verified Twitter handle, on Wednesday morning.
According to him, the move might become necessary, if the perceived ‘Fulanisation and Islamisation agenda’ continues in Nigeria.
Fani-Kayode said that such a motion by him will be consistent with the precedent set by his father, Chief Remi Fani-Kayode, who on August 2, 1958, successfully moved the motion for Nigeria’s independence, from the British Colonial Rule.
He stated that the new Republic that would emerge, would be known as “Oduduwa”.
The former Minister tweeted: “On August 2, 1958, my father, Chief Remi Fani-Kayode, successfully moved the motion for Nigeria’s independence, from British Colonial Rule.
“If the Fulanisation and Islamisation agenda continues, I shall move the motion for Oduduwa’s independence from Nigerian Colonial Rule.”
Recall, that Fani-Kayode is a close Ally of Nnamdi Kanu, who is seeking a Biafra Republic, in the South East geopolitical zone of Nigeria.
