MacDaniel Mark: Gabon coup – Femi Fani-Kayode’s statement, a diversionary tactic

I find the statement by Femi Fani-Kayode about the coup detat in Gabon highly diversionary. He was deliberately and desperately trying to divert attention from his sins and those of his gang members at home. He spoke out of the fear of nemesis, but unfortunately for him, kama cannot be manipulated.

For the records, the coup in Gabon wasn’t against France as he would like to have it painted, but against corrupt and avaricious politicians that seek political power at all costs just to plunder their nations and impoverish the citizenry.

The coup was against political thieves and mandate robbers like him who have brazenly desecrated the sacred altar of democracy across Africa in the name of their self-seeking ambition. It was against political charlatans, election riggers and economic saboteurs who have for long constituted the greatest bane to political stability and economic development in the continent of Africa.

It was against a committee of political vultures like him who have for decades, been feeding fat on the bodies of the citizens they have slain through poverty, hunger and starvation. It was against a group of soulless and ruthless political knaves like him who rode their way to power on the wings of stolen mandate.

Who is Femi Fani-Kayode to talk about the unfolding events in Gabon while he and his henchmen back here in Nigeria represent the very repressive, corrupt, immoral and evil political gang that rigged their ways into power in the recently concluded presidential election? It was against his ilk that the coup detat in Gabon took place and not against France as he would like to have people believe. It was against shameless political thugs like him. One wonders what would have become of him by now if he were in Gabon.

The force of truth, once ignited by the right time and season is unstoppable, and it will continue to move with atomic impact until it totally reverses every seeming victory of falsehood. Fani-Kayode and his ilk should hide their faces in shame if they have any vestige of decency left in their egregiously battered reputation.
