The Killings in The North, The Facts And The Slippery Slope

Modern Ghana, April 30, 2011
by Femi Fani-Kayode
As regards the unfortunate and sad events that took place in the core north immediately after the just concluded presidential elections, during the course of my research and consultations with various groups and stakeholders in the last few days, I have established the following facts which I would humbly like to share with you: Read more…

I Stand and I Fight

The Nigerian Voice, November 17, 2010
By Femi Fani-Kayode.

The word of God is immutable and unassailable and He is faithful to keep it to the very end. If I know nothing else, this I know to be true. I know that scripture cannot be broken and that whether we live or die tomorrow is in the hands of God alone. I also know that injustice and deceit can never last and that persecution only fuels dissent. There comes a time in the life of a man when he must be a man and stand up and speak the truth, even where others are too timid and intimidated to do so. And he must do this in the knowledge that whatever the price that he may have to pay, whether it be assassination, arrest, detention, harassment, persecution, prosecution or utter destruction, he is ready to pay that price and take the glory and the honour that goes with it. By the grace of God I have today reached that point and I will bare my mind to the sickly Read more…

Press Statement by Chief Femi Fani-Kayode on the Occasion of His Victory at The Federal High Court

FULL TEXT of Press Statement by Chief Femi Fani-Kayode on the Occasion of his Victory at the Federal High Court on 1st July 2015.

Ladies and gentlemen, I am delighted, humbled and relieved by this verdict. In the last seven years, I have been subjected to the most malicious, vicious, sinister, well-orchestrated, insidious and devastating form of political persecution and wickedness. Read more…

Challenges and persecution

Whilst at Public Affairs Femi Fani-Kayode was President Obasanjo’s chief ideologue and propagandist. He was loved, respected and admired by those who supported Obasanjo but he was intensely disliked and feared by those who opposed him. This was as a consequence of the passionate and aggressive way in which Femi Fani-Kayode took on Obasanjo’s many traducers and defended the President. The office of public affairs within the Presidency had effectively become a shadowy and powerful weapon of war in Obasanjo’s arsenal whilst Fani-Kayode ran and headed it. He reported directly to Obasanjo and he was regarded by the President more like a son than an aide. Read more…

Reuben Abati and the delusions of today’s men

Premium Times, February 3, 2013
by Femi Fani- Kayode.
Being ”yesterday’s men” does not mean that some of us cannot be ”tomorrow’s men” as well. Only God knows what lies ahead for each and everyone of us.
I read Dr. Reuben Abati’s article titled ‘The Hypocrisy Of Yesterday’s Men” (3rd Feb.2013), which was published in virtually every newspaper in the country, with amusement. He sought to ridicule and demean those of us that served President Olusegun Obasanjo’s government and that are not very impressed with the performance of his boss. The fact that we asked President Goodluck Jonathan to account for the 67 billion USD he squandered from our foreign reserves has clearly upset him. We dared to ask about the money and so we were singled out and targeted for a tongue-lashing and a long lecture from the Presidency. Read more…

Face-off: Ezekwesili, Jonathan and the $67b question

Vanguard, February 2, 2013
by Femi Fani- Kayode.
I think that it is a pity that President Goodluck Jonathan’s Government declined to take up the challenge of the former Minister of Education, Mrs. Obiageli Ezekwesili, to a public debate on the $67billion USD savings that President Obasanjo left behind in 2007. I do not think that our government ought to have run away from the debating ring. Government ought to have accepted the challenge of a rigorous public debate and allow the Nigerian people to listen to it and make up their own minds about who was right and who was wrong. I thought that the response of the Special Assistant to the President On Public Affairs, Dr. Doyin Okupe, to Obiageli Ezekwesili was more logical and made far more sense than that of the Honorable Minister of Information, Labaran Maku’s, but I still believe that Ezekwesili was right. I believe that the government’s position on this issue and it’s attempt to over-aggressively defend what I personally consider to be the indefensible is not only disingenuous but it is also essentially dishonest and self-seeking.

Federal Republic Of Shattered Dreams

Once again we have witnessed yet another tragic air crash in our nation. And once again it has happened in the usual mysterious circumstances and with the usual attendant loss of life. This is so sad. There is so much death in this country. So many tears. So much evil. So much sadness and so many tragedies. So many shattered dreams, broken hearts and wounded souls. So much injustice and insensitivity. So much greed and want. So much bloodshed, blood-letting and blood-spilling. Read more…

Joy Comes in the Morning

Today our nation stands at a crossroad and it is left for us to decide which path we choose to take. Do we take the path of despair and dishonour and give up on our country? Or do we rise above it all and latch on to the promises of God for our land and for our people? With biting poverty, mounting hopelessness, a bleeding economy, youth restiveness, unprecedented violence, brazen acts of terror and all manner of vices and evil thriving in the land one wonders how things got so bad.
